Tonight, I wanted to show Robo the video from “The Daily Show” where host Jon Stewart rips Nancy Grace a new one. (Robo and I love to hate Nancy Grace.) I had his laptop pulled up to his bedside on his rolling tray table and I was perched on the side of the bed.
We had a laugh about the video and right before I got up to leave, he reached over and patted me on the shoulder. And it was a really nice gesture, and it really made me feel good. And it then occurred to me how little of that we do anymore. For no reason. I mean, I sometimes help him bathe and other tasks, but that’s different. And it made me realize how much I miss that. And how something seemingly insignificant can mean so much.
