Can’t Smile Without You

September 7, 2012

In the day to day grind, especially as a caregiver, it’s so easy to forget how to have fun and laugh. It’s easy to get caught up in the routine of “take your pills, do you want the AC on, are your shoes tight enough” that when the fun moments happen, we sometimes tuck them in the back of our minds and forget them for a bit until they jump up and bite us and say “hey, you, smile a little wouldja?”

A few weeks ago, a work friend of mine and Queenie’s came for a surprise visit and spent the day with us. We had a fantastic day doing nothing more than talking. Queenie was having a bit of a rough day between fatigue and trouble cathing but she was still able to spend a few hours catching up. I’d forgotten how much that day meant to both of us until I ran across this picture in my phone. There’s the Queenie I know and love…putting a schmear of cream cheese on someone’s nose.

Thanks for the day, Steff…it meant more than you know. For a few hours that Sunday I had my sister back.
