The New Year
By working in nursing homes I often get a different perspective on life. For example, today (the first day of the new year) I experienced a family making a hard decision to put their mother on hospice AND a 103 year old women who was THRILLED that the cleaning staff found her lost (for over two months) hearing aide under her cabinet. This year will be full of ups and downs, sadness and happiness, uncertainty and certainty...but whatever it holds I want to take the chance to live my life to the fullest. I don't want to be afraid to cry because my heart hurts or to shout with joy at the small joys of the day. Live Life. Live Life to the Fullest!
