Peg Pringle wears two hats for UCP… one as Clerical Assistant in the Lewistown office of Capital Home Care; the other as a home care aide. The poem below was written by Capital Home Care consumer Lois Osenga, who apparently finds Peg’s home care hat to be a halo.
~ My Aide ~
There is someone in my life
She helps me every day,
By taking care of my physical cleanliness
Then, sits by my side to hear my cares!
My family lives out of town
And lots of times, my pain takes me down,
She listens to me when I cry
Sometimes, it’s hard to say “Good-bye.”
I know she’ll be back
She always tells me so
It was not planned that we meet, after all
It was by my accident in a fall!
It may sound strange to say
But, after three years, she comes every day
I can truly say “I Love Her” like a “Best Friend” who calms my fears
And turns me to laughter, instead of tears.
God knew years ago that I would be
In a position to have someone take care of me
And He chose the right caregiver into my life
To help me through all my surgeries and strife!
For Peg Pringle/Capital Home Care
