Being Needed

"I need you to come over right now," she said and I turned off the flame under the pot on the cooktop, said goodbye to TBG and The Schnozz and I were on our way.

I did what needed to be done and stayed as long as I necessary and I reassured and comforted and then I came home to Douglas and a turkey sandwich and a warm feeling in my heart.  It's nice to be needed.

I've spent the last 6 months being tended.  I've been fed and driven and hugged and sheltered and cosseted and today I was able to do the same for a friend.  It's nice to be on the other side of the equation.

It wasn't particularly convenient for me to leave when she called.  I was in the middle of cooking dinner and I hadn't written this post and Big Cuter was going to call and none of it mattered because she needed me and I was able to respond.  Had this happened two months ago I'd have been useless.  I'd have listened and offered advice and a shoulder to sob on but getting up and actually helping would have been out of the question.

Tonight my body didn't get in the way of my desire.  I was able to do what needed to be done.  I could help a friend.

I'm well on my way to being fine.

  1. I almost cried reading this post. You are a nurturer and it comes out in all of your posts. Your friend is so lucky to have you. Think getting the call for help, helped you as much as the person you helped. ;)
