Ach, dat kind...

Posted on 11 June, 2019 at 11:25

Haar broer en zussen vonden het geweldig, een nakomertje. Ze waren dol op dat grappige meisje: wat moesten ze lachen als ze vanuit haar kinderstoel het gezicht van hun moeder resoluut vastpakte en naar zich toedraaide zodat moeder haar aan kon kijken. Joke bleek ernstig gehoorgestoord.

Daardoor, en omdat ze de jongste was, werd ze behoorlijk verwend: Ach dat kind, was moeders vaste reactie als Joke iets deed wat de anderen nooit mochten. En Joke ging zitten lezen, altijd maar lezen.

Maar toen ze 16 was werd haar moeder ziek en ging dood. De oudste zus, net bevallen van haar tweede kind, nam haar in huis. En omdat er nu drie kinderen in de kleine flat waren, kwamen ze in aanmerking voor een eengezinswoning en kreeg Joke de hele zolderverdieping. De zus deed haar best om haar zusje ondanks haar handicap zelfstandig te maken - Joke vond haar streng. Maar ze maakte haar opleiding af, solliciteerde, werd meteen aangenomen en zat er 45 jaar later nog. Inmiddels al lang op zichzelf. Altijd op tijd, nooit ziek, altijd goede zin, iedereen mocht haar èn kwam bij haar als ze iets niet wisten: zíj was hun wandelende Wikipedia, internet werd pas in tweede instantie geraadpleegd.

Toen ze op een ochtend niet op haar werk verscheen, wist iedereen dan ook direct dat er iets ernstigs aan de hand moest zijn en ondernam de directeur actie: Joke bleek onderweg een hersenbloeding gehad te hebben. Ach dat kind, zei de oudste zus hardop, onderweg naar het ziekenhuis.

Revalidatie, verpleeghuis, het kwam niet goed. Wel 1000 boeken moesten er weg, want er was maar plek voor tachtig dozen in de kasten op haar kamer. Maar haar collega’s lieten haar niet vallen: het was altijd een feest om Joke op te zoeken. Maar net toen ze na anderhalf jaar triomfantelijk zelf weer een paar pasjes kon zetten, trof haar een tweede hersenbloeding. Die werd haar fataal.

Het verpleeghuis heeft nu een bibliotheek. En iedereen die op haar uitvaart was, mocht een boek uitzoeken.

Thanks for getting so accommodating and for picking out varieties of superior things millions of individuals are really needing to discover. My very own honest apologies for not saying thanks to earlier.

I wish to show thanks to this writer for bailing me out of this type of challenge. After searching through the the net and coming across strategies which were not powerful, I thought my entire life was over. Existing without the answers to the difficulties you've solved all through your entire blog post is a critical case, and ones which could have badly damaged my career if I had not encountered the website. Your capability and kindness in touching everything was priceless. I'm not sure what I would've done if I had not come upon such a solution like this. I am able to at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks for your time so much for this specialized and effective help. I won't be reluctant to suggest the blog to any individual who should receive direction on this area.

My spouse and i got really excited Ervin managed to carry out his analysis with the ideas he came across when using the web site. It's not at all simplistic just to happen to be releasing tips and tricks that some other people could have been selling. Therefore we know we've got the writer to be grateful to for that. Those illustrations you made, the easy web site navigation, the relationships you make it easier to promote - it is mostly spectacular, and it's letting our son and us feel that this concept is pleasurable, which is certainly pretty essential. Thanks for the whole lot!
