She is my mother figure, She is the one who took me under her wing
at my first real job. She is the one who got me another job. The job that changed
my life ... and changed my direction in life. She is the one who pushed me
and saw my potential before anyone else. She is the one who twisted my
arm to stop working for others. She became my office manager for 10 years.
Many times she said to me, you are the son I never had.
Today I stopped in to say hi, she greeted me with open arms and a big smile.
After about 20 minutes, she starts talking about this company she used to work for
before she retired. It took me a minute to realize she was talking about my company.
So I said so. She said no, I am talking about ( MY NAME )'s company.
Then it hit me. She did not know who I was.
Senility, Alzheimer's, something else. I don't know.
I feel like a total jack ass for not being there for her.
I am not sure what to do, but bet your ass i am going to do something.
Don't mind me i am just venting.
