We are so much better off having someone to care about. It gets you outside of yourself.
The walk to the car from a ball game was too far, I couldn’t make it. My concern for Mary’s well being was my mental focus at the time. I can’t imagine how sorry I would have been feeling for myself without that.
It’s actually a bit silly on my part as Mary was doing all the hard work and care taking of me. What a wonderful person. Getting outside of yourself is so incredibly helpful.
