thinking of customers past

ive been a window cleaner almost ten years now- im reflecting on it.  the people who iv cleaned for who have passed away are in my mind. the gentle conversations i had with them- i still hear them .

When i first started out window cleaning i was very unsure, im not a natural to cleaning, i mean its not in my background . But some of the people i met were very encouraging and offered kind words of support. Of course a few were the exact opposite ,telling me “youre shit ,dont come back”  ,but i dont hear them now

i dug deep and persisted , got good and natural at cleaning in time and on the hard days the kindly words spoken to me many years back often came back into my mind. Many of these people are now dead but i can  still hear the voices ,our conver it seems it was like yesterday , the words of advice , clearly remain, in my mind . “my husband always used to say… ” ” youll be allrite Jonny ”  laddd
