“Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.”

Milton. https://blessedwithastarontheforehead.wordpress.com/2013/07/16/milton-my-new-friend/ I haven’t seen him in awhile. His birthday was September 30 and I was going to bring him a cupcake but again he was not in his usual spot. They have repair going on that corner and I looked around to see if he had moved to another corner but couldn’t find him.
I am hoping that is a good sign. He had been waiting on NY City to get him housing, so perhaps that means that they relocated him to some kind of housing.
C, a resident from the Nursing home called me. https://blessedwithastarontheforehead.wordpress.com/2013/09/11/when-the-right-thing-is-also-the-hardest-thing/
He has a hard time speaking, it takes effort and concentration for the words to come out and when they do is very low and hard to understand. Even in person I have to keep asking him to repeat, so in the telephone was worse.
I tried my best to understand and I think we were able to get some things understood. He misses me and wants me to call or visit. I mentioned that I had sent him a card and he said he didn’t get it.
I hope the Nursing home is not holding on to the cards that I sent. I bought Halloween cards to some of the residents I used to visit. For convenience and because I didn’t have everyone’s last name I put it all in a FedEx envelope and sent them to D., the girl that works there and did the visits with em. I can’t imagine her holding on to it and not handing out.
C. has an appointment on November 11 with a throat doctor. He said the doctor will inject Vitamin C on his vocal chords and he will be able to speak better. I hope that all goes well with that. It is so hard to watch him speaking.
I am going to see if the nursing home lets me visit him when I return from my trip.
This feels a bit rushed as I am leaving in 5 minutes on my way to the airport. I am going to Brazil to see my family. I am blessed, and even more blessed for knowing I am blessed!
Thank you God, Thank you Universe! 🙂
