I wanted to share something with you all. On Saturday, I went with my friend and her husband to visit her mother, who is 91. She resides in a place for senior citizens who have various health issues from Alzheimer's to whatever. My friend's mother has Alzheimer's but I think she looks very good for 91, and she doesn't seem to be as advanced in her Alzheimer's as I know that some people are, so she is pretty alert and can carry on a conversation. I love her, she is such a sweet woman!
Anyway, the reason I am sharing this is because when I was there, there was also a gentleman who used to be a doctor (a surgeon, I am told). He doesn't have Alzheimer's, but I haven't found out yet what his health issues are. Apparently he was an excellent doctor and saved many lives. I found it so sad to see him, as he was sitting at a table and had his arms folded on the table and his head was buried in his arms. Almost as if he was saying to himself, "What did I do to end up here?" I wanted to share this because I think it is so important to live in the moment and appreciate the people we have in our lives and the things we have (a job, roof over our heads, food in our stomachs, etc.), as we just never know if, or when, something like this could happen to us. Thank you so much for listening.
