Did you know that if you die and have no resources, and no friends or family that pay for it, Tulsa County Social Services will see to it that you are buried or cremated?
I knew this but let me say…when it is a client that you adore (or even don’t) who is the one being buried or cremated by them, it’s sooooo hard. The difficulty isn’t not in what TCSS does, but in knowing that client truly had nothing and no one.
It’s never the material things that matter. We all experience loneliness at times. But…to think of being that alone in your is scary and sad.
It’s been so heavy on my heart, I think because I wonder if that person ever felt or knew that they mattered. I hope so.
I can’t really do anything to resolve this but love, love, and love some more.
Small things matter. Smiles matter. Eye contact matters. Hugs matter. Asking someone how they are and really listening to their heart…this matters.
Every person matters.❤️
