Sweet thoughts

After a very long day at work, I arrived home to find a lovely card from a little old lady that I work for.  Well in saying I work for her is an understatement of our relationship. I go to her house once a fortnight to help her to do the things she finds difficult to do – but that doesn’t mean she is frail, far from it. It doesn’t feel like work. She is like the grandmother I never had growing up and I love her to bits. I have known this lady for nearly 12 years. I share my thoughts and feelings with her and she is always interested in what is happening in my life. She has been there through the up & downs, and throughout always encouraging and giving me friendly advice. She has really built up my self- esteem. She never thinks of herself, only of others.  A kindred spirit, and the reason for the card; to wish me good luck for tomorrow as I have a hospital appointment – a procedure that I’m not looking forward to and if I have to be honest -I have been feeling sick with dread. Isn’t it wonderful for others to have you in their thoughts?

To My Kindred Spirit
by Todd-Michael St. Pierre

We share secrets, we laugh and even cry,

We have so much in common,

Concerns, likes and dislikes.

Ours is a relationship joined by

Tender velvet chains that link our

similar dreams of life and love.

A gentle intuition guides us in our

individual struggles to succeed

at the things we pursue, to stand

out from the crowd.

In you I have found so much of myself,

Including many of the same

Insecurities and philosophies.

Complete inner-peace and happiness,

These are the things I wish for you,

in the present and in the future

because you are my kindred spirit.

So I am going to take her good wishes, try to relax and get a goodnight rest.

  1. So excited for your hand-crafted gifts! Make sure you share them on your blog and I’m so glad to have been able to inspire you a bit!

  2. Just read your post – hope all goes well with your procedure, keep visualizing good things, eat healthfully and rest well.

  3. Thank you for your kind words, and good advice. Back home now from the hospital, although the procedure wasn’t pleasant I’m glad my GP is being thorough. Good news the results were normal. :).
    Time for reflection, stop stressing and to look after myself
