More smiles

Leave a Reply

Good news — another hour has just been added to every 24-hour day (don’t ask us how. We have powers). How do you use those extra sixty minutes?

What would I do with more time at my disposition? Probably the same I’m doing now but more calmly. I spend most of my time  taking care of my mom. With one more hour a day, I’ll have more time to tend her. More hours, more time with mom. That would be great, because I think each instant of her life is a treasure in my hands. Now that she needs me, I’m trying to make her life as comfortable as possible despite her limitations. I try to give her all the care and love she gave me when I needed. We have our hard moments, with pain, discouragement and tears. But she is strong and is at peace. And I try to ease her pain and discomfort as much as possible. Her smiles, her kisses, and her old style blessings doing a little cross in my forehead with the only hand she can move, are my best pay. More time, more smiles, more blessings.

Twenty-Five Seven.
