    Classic Movies and World Leaders



    These are what the site came up with for me. Schindler's List and Mother Teresa? Not to sound too vain but, please dear God, don't let me end up looking like this!
    I do love to give to others. What I give is myself in any way I can to everyone. Even people I don't like. I'm not sure why in the hell I'm like this. I guess that I just want people to like me. I have an obssession with doing for others.
    I just spent the last week with my mother who was in the hospital after knee replacement surgery. I have a young mother (55) so this was hard for me to see her helpless. She had the most adorable roommate. Her name is Phyllis and she is 81. Phyllis had very few visitors so I took it upon myself to "help" her as well as my mother. I spent 8 hours of my day running between the two beds. Getting them whatever they needed.
    Phyllis thought that she was going home because they had pulled her IV. A student nurse came in and said, "I have to start an IV on you". Phyllis was so upset to think that she wasn't going home that she started to cry. I'm a sucker for old people, I'll admit it. I started to cry because I was thinking of myself in her situation, alone, old and vulnerable. I decided that I would talk to her to try to comfort her as to why they needed the IV. She was happy with my explanation. I held her hand while 3 different people poked her a total of 6 times before they got it in. Idiots! She didn't even flinch.
    She thanked me through her tear soaked eyes for comforting her. She said that it really meant a lot. All I did was hold her hand.
    I really don't want to get old!
