Kindness Done For Me
- My 83 year old mom has dementia. I am in a wheelchair with RA & sometimes limited to what I can do to help her. I have a knee that is fused with a rod in the leg. This leg will not bend so I am limited to what spaces I can go in. My mom needs help in the bathroom a lot of the time & I can't reach her in a regular public stall. Many times I have had other ladies in the restroom offer to help her when they see what is happening. It is so great to have their help because it helps my mom's dignity & helps me tremendously! I am so thankful for these women!! They will also stay with her until I get my hands washed & they help us get back to our table. They are certainly angels sent by God.
