For most of my life I have been an independent, hard working and happy single Mother. I worked many jobs, sometimes 2 or 3 at a time just to make ends meet. I tried to make my own repairs on my car and home, cut my grass, and all the other things we all do on a daily basis. I spent a lot of time with my son and even though we were poor financially we were rich in love and friendship.My son ,now grown, married and with a child of his own is my greatest accomplishment and joy in my life. I then met "My Robert" who brought to my life an entirely new kind of love. Robert's love has taught me to let others help me when I need it (this was hard ) and to be thankful for those things I can still do for myself. Robert never complains about my slowness, my forgetfulness, the lights I leave on or the cabinets I leave open. Lately I have been feeling so bad that I don't get further than the couch or bed. I have little to no energy and watching Robert go off to work each day and then come home , work on the house (he is laying new floors and painting) and do laundry, sweep, mop etc, etc. All I can do is watch. I feel bad, I feel like a mooch and a slug and am always apologizing for my lack of energy. I am depressed. What kind of life is this? There's no Quality in this life. Then "My Robert" says ,"As long as you Love and are Loved, that is all I, or You, ever need". How did I get so lucky!
