A Beautiful Visit
On Wednesday night, Mom, Dad, and I visited the patients at Central State Psychiatric Hospital. The patients have come to expect my visits. As I laid on the floor waiting for them to approach me, a young lady entered the room, ran over, and laid down with me. She put her arms around my neck and hugged me. She spent a lot of time with me Wednesday night. She was not at all afraid of me, even though I was clearly bigger than she. I heard Mom ask Dad on the way home, "Did you say the way Sitka and the young lady were looking into each others eyes? There was a real connection with them." Dad replied, "Yes, I did."
Sometimes, psychiatric patients are afraid or do not trust humans, but they almost always trust me. Mom and Dad are continually amazed as they watch me work with the patients. I love my job and Mom and Dad love watching me perform the job GOD has called me to do.
