I love Alanis Morissette's song Empathy Full Stop! A definite gift of music! Thank you for your thought-provoking lyrics!
Here's a tidbit:
"Thank you for seeing meI feel so less lonelyThank you for guiding meI hear your bide, you empathyHa-a this intimacy ha, ah, ah, ah."
I tested positive for the dreaded COVID. My mom's long-term care home was in an outbreak. My mom tested positive, and then I caught it from her. Before I say anything more, PSWs (personal support workers) should receive at least $30.00 an hour. We need to start a revolution in senior care. That's a whole other blog post, so stay tuned!
Folks have told me, Feel better! Get well! etc. I appreciate that. Thank you! My sister said, "I know it's difficult for you, but try to rest."
I've been muddling through this and trying not to be a welcoming host. Last year, when I contracted COVID, I was on holidays. I would not wish that again. Except for puppy walks, I did not leave my house for three weeks. I want to bring Christmas cheer to my mom's long-term care home this year if we are in the COVID clear. Crossing our fingers!!!!
One difficult part of getting this now is being tired on top of already being tired while working at multiple jobs.
The difficult part is that I can't visit my mom for ten days.
I was thinking about the tragedies of the world, and the word empathy came to mind, and then Alanis Morrisette's song called exactly that played after a song I originally wanted to hear on Google.
