Heather Wilson Sends Her Best Wishes

I'm sure all those of you who were followers of our lovely Heather are wondering what became of her as she has not been active on PH for some time now. I am in occasional contact with her via personal email, and have been in touch recently. Heather has asked me to pass on her best wishes to everyone. Heather herself is fine, but as you know is a carer for her disabled husband. Her husband's care needs have increased, therefore she has little time to write poems or be active on this site. She has mentioned that she has received a number of emails which she has been unable to answer, she simply does not have the time now.

I hope this little update will put your minds at rest if you have been worrying about her absence from the site. I thought this was the best way to let everyone know how she is doing and why she has not been posting or communicating.

I am sure you will join me in wishing Heather (and her husband) all the very best, and we hope that she will be able to return to PH at some time in the future. At present, she is unable to say whether she will or will not.

Three cheers for Heather...........

    My very, very best wishes to Heather and her husband.
    I just have lost my father after a long disease.
    I wrote a small poem yesterday.
    I do not know, but if it can be of any help to Heather, please forward to her.
    Perhaps others can avoid the mistake I made myself:

    My dear father,

    When you were well, I truly loved you
    Not for what you had or what you gave me
    But truly for who you were and what you did

    But then, my dear father, this dementia came

    I still loved you so much, but more, I loved the one you used to be
    You forgot what day it was, not once but many times in a few hours
    Initially I hardly tolerated it, It was hard to accept, harder to respect

    I still loved the old you, but had so much difficulties even accepting the new you

    You had problems behaving properly in the supermarket.
    I thought I still loved you, but I was still loving the old you, father
    I had so much difficulties accepting the new you

    You were at home and expressed your longing to go home
    I could not accept it, did not even ask you where your home was
    I tried to convince you, you were home already.

    Oh my father, how I regret that I did not manage to love your new you more.

    I regret my prejudices of how everything should be
    I told my self I loved you so much, but I was loving the you, you used to be.
    Instead of loving you just the way you were, I fretted about what was no longer.

    Thanks for the warning. We are here hoping that everything goes well and she comes back to us. A big hug and health.

  • Dee Corpolongo (8/27/2013 10:27:00 AM)

    This was so kind of you to do Val, and to let everyone here know!
    Also, I pray that all will ease up for her, and she will one day return.
    I also include her husband in the prayer....and three cheers for her
    ....and you! Thanks for this thoughtfulness too.

    Thank you Valerie for posting this update on Heathers husband. As I stated in my
    poem on A Member to Remember we are just like one big family. We are not only
    on PH to write poems we are also here to encourage, uplift, enrich, and most of
    all to show concern for each other and their families. Special thanks to you for
    making us aware of this situation with Heather and a speedy recovery for her husband.

  • Kevin Halls (8/25/2013 3:28:00 PM)

    As you know Val I emailed Heather but as she's busy caring for her husband she never got back.
    Thanks for letting us all know she's fine and hopefully her husband improves soon.
    It's a shame though Heather still no longer writes her poems as they are very good and they give so much pleasure to all who read them.

    Hip Hip Horray. What a shame, I hope she returns soon and that her husband improves.
