His needs

Psalm 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me

A peony from my spring garden

Mike woke me at 3:15. He was calling for me, and when I made it downstairs he was sitting on the sofa with tears in his eyes. “I couldn’t find you” I assured him I was here, I hadn’t gone anywhere and I convinced him to go back to bed. I walked with him back to his room, helped him get into bed and covered him with a blanket. I turned out the lights as I headed back to my bed. He had almost every light in the house turned on!

Once I got back to my bed it took about an hour for me to fall asleep again. I was up at 7:30 for the day, and when I got downstairs, Mike was asleep on the sofa! (sigh)

I made myself a cup 9f tea and went back to my room, and not to long after I heard him calling me. He needed help getting dressed. I had to help him take his jeans off and turn them around and then help him get them back on; next was his shoes & socks. I got the shoes untied, he put them on and I retired them for him. Finally he was ready to go to the Bennett House. He slept the whole time there and only woke up when I got back to take him home. The afternoon was hectic. I was busy taking care of the things he needed, and I barely had time to sit down myself.

Mike finally went to bed at 7: 30, abd I was so very tired. By 8:15 I had gone to my room and prepared to go to sleep, and I heard Mike downstairs. When I checked on him, I tried to encourage him to go to bed, but he refused and went to sleep on the sofa. Now at 9:30, he’s snoring like a chainsaw and I am going to try, again, to have him go back to his bed.
