I've Got Your Back Mom



I was purging the hall closet last night
where there is a mirror on the inside of the door.

I glanced in it and caught
my Howie lying behind me in the doorway
 of the guest room.

This Love is never more than 6 feet away from me.
He steps over my O/2 tubing as you can see and will 
trudge up and down the stairs as many times as I do.
He has bad knees, limited hearing
and failing eyesight now.

But he loves me, is devoted to me
and I am so blessed.

When I fall sleep and begin to have 
breathing issues he now nudges me
awake and stares at me until I say 
"It's Ok Howie go to bed."

If I ever need reminding that all my troubles
mean nothing in the big scheme of life,
this pic says it all.

I've got your back Mom

The way he nudges you when you have breathing difficulties is very much like a support dog. Hey Howie...you are a gem! I'm wondering how old he is. I remember him from waaaaay back when I first started following you.

Awwwww, he's a good one. I swear my late cat Sam knew when I was not feeling well. Even though he was not a lap cat, he would climb on up and let me pet him. :) Kit
