I can't hardly believe that today marks one year that Karla has been with me as my caregiver. Other friends have helped make my life better but as far as a consistent, daily blessing Karla has made this the best year since I moved back in 2001. I'm happy every day she's here and there is absolutely nothing I would change. The 'R' in Karla must stand for 'remember' because she always knows not only what I like but how I like things. This is huge when you have to depend on someone else to do things for you. We are so alike in our thoughts and ways that we have to be more than sisters in Christ in some way.
They say we should praise God in the hallways of our lives. I feel that is where I am at but it's lighted ever so brightly. If I can't be independent nor in heaven yet, then I will dance daily in this wonderful hallway with Karla.
God's timing was perfect in bringing her here. Sure I could say I wish it had been 9 years earlier but it's only my selfishness to think I needed Karla more than her previous family. God knows where we all need to be and when. I will just cherish this past year and the days to come.
Karla is love and is loved. What a blessing!
