Positive thinking isn't denial; it's the accurate realization that we don't know everything and therefore, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE...

Mrs. Pearl...Another True Story From The Vault

A while back my elderly neighbor fell down and broke her hip.  Since Her and I often conversationed over the wire chicken fence that divides our yards I thought it would be best to visit her to let her know that our family was thinking of her.  (in a dying with dignity home, and rehabilitation center)

I went during lunch time, and there were 3 beautiful other golden girls there.  One named Pearl caught my heart.  She was nearing a hundred.

She was having problems cutting her food and feeding herself.  I being there thought it was only right that I help get her fed.  I cut her food...and lifted the utensil to her mouth.

She was so happy that was someone was talking to her and assisting her.

this was the moment I thought..." I am going to volunteer here and help others out"

after a few moments Mrs. pearl had enough to eat.  I started to chatting to the other silver head ladies.  they were so delightful.

Lunch hour was done, and when I looked over at Mrs. Pearl she was unresponsive, the staff couldn't wake her up.  then they wheeled her away in her wheelchair.

I never went back to volunteer........
