On Saturday I will be going away with an amazing group of special people for a week of reflection and restoration (holiday). Molly will remain in hospital so in my absence I have arranged visits and outings for her every day until I am home. Knowing she will touch base with the outside world is so important and will help me to leave her.
We did our walk tonight as we do most nights, I can not imagine not being free – getting her outside come rain or shine is a lovely feeling and I do appreciate my freedom because of this situation. Last night we were joined by Ashley a lovely young lady who has supported Molly on and off for many years Molly was over the moon to see her, the little things are really the big things that matter!
While I am away I will be preparing the final stages of her next steps into supported living. Applying to the court of protection to be Molly’s deputy so that I can support her through this process. There is so much to do but first of all I need to put things in order so I know where to actually start. I am hoping that being still for a while will clear my head and I will come back refreshed and ready to keep on keeping on……………
Knowing your ‘why’ drives you and I know my ‘why’ I look into her eyes every day. I reassure her that we will get to where we need to be, we just need the strength and patience to pursue the dream.
“Hold on Molly, just hold on”
‘A dream doesn’t become a reality by magic – it takes sweat, determination and hard work!’
