I'm a member of the
A team a part of the 5% Fall Challenge. We have a thread that's titled : What made today AWESOME was...
Its such an important part of ANY of my days to hit this thread. Why? NOT ALL Days are totally AWESOME (today some sadness watching a friend go thru a hard, difficult time though today was better than most for her family. Still) but, other than that it was a fun and very interesting day. I thought I'd share with you all how I answered that question:
What made today AWESOME was...
Work was very good. Helped a client do some shopping she wanted done. LOL She GOT me though!! We were in the 5 below store. She passed me some POP ROCKS and said "Put them in the cat box" well it took me a few seconds,,,and LOL I burst out laughing!! She has a NAUGHTY CAT who doesn't like to use the cat box. I could picture her kitty FINALLY going to use the box, and YO POP!!POP!!POP!! So yeah I lost it.
Despite her great day and choices of what she wanted,, and she found everything and then some,,, that was her FAVORITE part of the day!!! It's not easy to get me. LOL
So I am still smiling. I LOVED seeing her laugh and laugh!! That's as far as I'm concerned what my job is!! Getting each client out and laughing. She lives in horrid, horrid chronic pain.
Than to a conference which the state was doing to help the elderly as we age. My work had asked to go. Normally I do not bother to do with a system that's so broken. They don't /can't have all the answers. (DID I SAY WE??? yeah,, HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?). It was very very interesting. It's for sure a very broken system to say the least. And so sad to see people have to "downsize" because there aren't enough affordable services. If ONLY the government really understood, if they spent more, they'd SAVE more.
It was so neat to see how many supported the "inner generational" setting of nursing homes, having young people stay there at a very low or no cost to help the elderly. That's sooo cool and it could save so much $$ and it IS a moral booster. I WISH I had the $$$ to open a nursing home, that allowed this, PETS and nursery schools to come in often as well as other groups.
for enjoying my day with me!!
