Lucky in love

on March 10, 2013

I arranged for Anthony to be wheel-chair taxied home today for the third time this week. We are doing this so often lately that it is becoming the new norm. Anthony arrives here at 2pm and is taxied back to the nursing lodge at 4.30pm.

There have been numerous logistical glitches with this arrangement, but it’s getting smoother.

When Ants arrives, it takes awhile to get him out of the taxi, but once he is on the front veranda, it’s like the good old days – just the two of us.

Today, Ants saw Ming before milking, then we visited his nephew’s family, then we came back home to have a drink before the taxi arrived and, for the first time, Ants accepted he had to go back to the nursing lodge.

We hugged and kissed goodbye but there were no tears from either of us – phew.

Anthony was/is my first and only love. He continues to make my heart beat faster. I am so lucky!

    This is so heart melting, so happy that you have more quality time together – and I’m so happy that you heart beats faster still. I love this post, so positive and happy … the Julie, I want in my life .. so often as possible.

  8. I am so pleased this arrangement is working is well. We have one life: it’s so important to find happiness while we can; but I continue to admire the way you tackle the challenges before you, Julie.

  9. I think it is wonderful that you are able to have him taxied home for a couple of hours during the day and that he is getting use to having to go return to the nursing lodge after the visit is over
