My job

I support a woman who has disabilities…or as I prefer to say, exceptionalities. I entered her world in the middle of July. I felt discouraged when I first finished college, because I didn't get a job right away. God wanted me to wait for the right one, I believe. Tears well up in my eyes when I think about how grateful I am to be doing this…actually, to be truthful, a few tears actully roll down my cheeks.

I support an angel, who's wings are broken, but who's halo is shinier and brighter than any other. She's beautiful. The light that shines from her eyes has a more beautiful twinkle than any star in the sky. Her smile mends my broken heart. Divine intervention led me to that moment to meet such an angel.

During the interview that her mom was giving me, I felt my gift was to open up my heart and soul and fill her days with the kind of love I'd want from a caregiver if I was in her position in life. At the end of the interview, her mom told me that she prayed for an angel and I came along. I never ended an interview with tears in my eyes. I was so moved and honored, beyond belief.

Every single time I am supporting her in a moment where she is vulnerable, I climb into her skin and immerse myself in what it would feel like for her. I find it hard to complain about my life, because she doesn't complain about hers. She is an inspiration to me and all who meet her.

I go to work and she kisses my cheek that is her gift to me…..That little gift she plants on my cheek may seem small to her. Little does she know that her life is a miracle to me. She breathes life into my tired and at time discouraged state. She makes me brave because united, we are both stronger. She allows my eyes to see through lenses of empathy and humility. I feel that she nudges me on day by day with a sense of understanding about life and myself. I give her kindness and whispers of encouragement.

As much as I've been hurt in this life, she heals me by her mere presence, in a cold, cruel world. Imagine coming to work and having the stress melt away. Thats how it is for me.

I wish I could tell everyone everything about her, she is a miracle that I would love everyone to behold….but this would be a breach of confidentiality. I can share with you the feelings I get by being with her. I feel humbled and blessed and chilled to the bone that I am worthy to be doing this every day.

Beautiful and heart-warming story. . . I believe in life there are people who become bitter when negative things happen to them and they take it out on others. .Then, on the other end of the spectrum there are the people who have gone through so many trials and tribulations in life and come out of it with empathy and wanting to give to others - those are the angels - and you and your friend can be counted among them :)
