Today I lost another friend....
she was old and tired and ready to move on.
It does not lessen the sting of her departure from this physical world.
Another friend is in the hospital and will pass this week.
He had a major stroke that sent him there and soon to the beyond.
On days like today, my job wearies me.
I work with the elderly,
and as precious as they are to me,
my heart breaks every time one goes home...
I must turn on the power of a positive smile,
keep moral up and continue my job
with those of us who are so casually left behind
when death comes.
It is so easy to make friends
and so hard to loose them.....
