  6. Hello Asha, stop worrying. You raise a wonderful Young Man, and he is going to do his journey his way. Thomas my Son, went to college, and because he would not listen to me, I just saw him been put out of college, not getting a job, living off us. Well, he did it his way. He finished college, got a great job, he is now living in Miami, enjoying his life. just got back from Ohio, the company paid for him to travel there and meet the Top directors.Like a early post said, it is they World, things are different from when we was growing up. He has not come back home, and he is growing and growing.

    Hello Nancy, it is not right, but the situation here in Florida, is not enough workers, pay is low. when i was in hospital, no more workers to help the Nursers, and they are over worked, have too much to do. My daughter, washed me, changed my bed, and made sure i was comfortable. Sad affairs that is going to get worse, as the population gets older. Wish you the best Yvonne

    *sigh* Politics

    Well said. It is shameful, that Women are still looked on has a piece of meat. to be touched, pulled, seasoning, and then put in a pan to be cooked. Politicians , are not known for they honesty, in England, a few of the Politicians have been seeking the "ladies of the night company".
  14. I love that you are Sassy. My church goes to the Nursing homes, but only at Valentines day. So I went to a nursing home offering my time, since that is what I can offer, I was turned down. I did not mind if they did a background check. I love the way some cultures respect their elder's. I go too a center, I have got so much wisdom, and laugh. Time we treated our older generation, and the disability's better. Love and Hugs Yvonne

    Nancy , you are a fighter, and you are a kind caring Person. When my first husband was rude to me, which was every day, I drop my head, and just feel so small. I read a great book " Love must be tough", written by Dr. Dodson , which said that if you allow the Person to treat you bad, that is what you are going to get, be treated rotten. Yes he had a stroke, but that does not give him the right to be so rude to you. Nancy, hold your head up high, you are a Gladiator! God Bless Yvonne
