“I appreciate your help but sometimes I just want to be left alone”, she said to me today.
I suppose I do get too much like a helicopter parent.
She could have become more angry and told me to “Back off!” but she did not.
I stepped over a line that I am still looking for.
Carpe Diem and learn.
There is a subtle difference between caregiver and care partner. We seem to be on the cusp of that some days. So I felt it was necessary to find back Edie’s prayer modified by me and read it again.
… so much to learn and as I write this Pink Floyd is singing “Comfortably Numb” on Alexa nearby. Perhaps I have become numb or non-listening lately.
Seize the moment to listen.
