Children believe adults can do anything and solve any problem. Adults can do anything and solve any problem because they have children who believe in them. If you had told me a few years ago that I would be caring for my grandma the way I am now, that I would have been working full-time, I would have been scared that I wouldn’t have been able to do it. But my grandma thinks I can do anything.
Tonight she wasn’t sure where her bedroom was, so we went looking for it. Turns out it was down the hall. She still didn’t think it was her room. Maybe she was imagining her old house, maybe something from her childhood. I promised it was her bedroom, but she wanted to look in the drawers to make sure. Then she found a card with her name on it, so this must be where she belongs, and for now this is where I belong too.
