Calm Tremors


The sleep that I got did me so much good

I’d wish for it each night, if only  I could

I had the energy today of a big  jumping jack

I cleaned the house thoroughly never looking back

The hospital bed and commode are in place

I cleaned his room and also threw the waste

I sorted the summer and winter wear

With his weight loss, now the closet is bare

His tremors were calm, and a smile did show

So I took him to supper and then we did go

To Wal-Mart he headed straight for the toys

To buy a new car, he fitted in with all little  boys

He grinned as he picked it and showed it to me

I smiled at him, as proud as a sister could be

I wish every day was just like today

But I will take what I can and thank God for this day.


MIllion Dollars

Bed Jump

I helped tuck Al in last night. Made sure he was comfy and the urinal was at his side on the rail of the bed. I urged him to go to his room at 12:15am, and he didn’t put up a fuss, especially, when I told him he could continue to watch TV in his own room.

He looked pretty set when I left his room, and I drug myself to my own bedroom. I turned my fan on and without even trying, my head hit the pillow and I was out. I believe all the prayers, plus my being so exhausted, and the fact, that if all went alright, Al would not get out of bed for any reasons, I slept like a baby.

I am not even ashamed to tell the world that along with my nap, and sleep in my own bed, I slept a total of 11 hours. I woke up at 8:30. I thought to myself, wow! I feel like a million dollars. What can I conquer today!

I heard my brother moving around, so went and helped him get up, freshened up, clean brief, and clean clothes on. Came out to the kitchen and whipped him up some eggs, and poured me a hot cup of java, and now here, long enough to tell you about my million dollar night!

Even though it is drizzling and gloomy, I feel so good. Thank you Jesus, thank you friends, thank you world!!!

I think I will clean the house today. I don’t think I will be trying to take Al out with the weather being nippy and wet. I don’t want him to catch a cold, so turn my electric fireplace on, turn the soft music on, light my candles, and dance to the sweeper!!!!
