99 years old...
I worked yesterday evening. I had an entire ward to myself. I love being in charge. 7 people were under my care and one lovely lady turning 99 was my programme for the evening. Margret is her name and I adore her. She is fit as a fiddle for her age. Sight and hearing have mostly left, so I basically have to put my face so close to hers that our noses touch- for her to say: "Ah, I recognize those eyes!" I am the only one of 24 employees at my ward who has dark-brown eyes. It was so lovely. We had a cake-strawberry cream: which she loves- some pancakes and salmon-bread. We lit a couple of candles and the 7 of us would snuggle closer and read cards. Yes, Margret is that old and wise that you´d believe anything she says, even if it comes from cards:) They all agreed, being with one foot in the grave, that it would be more interesting to read my future than theirs.
This is what she saw:
-a couple of rough months ahead until the middle of this year, then things will start to arrange themselves according to my plans
-I will travel twice this year and meet somebody very special- her eyes twinkled as she said that!
-I will do something this year that I have never thought about
-overall my year looks pretty balanced, with a few downs and quite a few ups
-most importantly: I will realize what I am looking for!
That ain´t to bad, people...I am looking forward to see which of these things turn out to be more than a figment of her imagination:) It surprised me to see how all 7 of them listened with utter attention to my predicted future and didn´t find it a slight bit odd or funny. I couldn´t help - with my educated, realistic and modern point of view to see this as a fun and slightly weird occurance, a bit of magic. What a delightful evening indeed. Happy Birthday, Marget!
I´ll ask her for her picture today and might put it in later. Talking about pics, why don´t you go over to Mom´s page and look at one there!
