It's funny, people always want to know what makes someone a good caregiver or why they enjoy the job, but it's not really a job at all - it's just decent. I care about the world I live in, the people in it and how we effect eachother. The truth is, I've gotten far more out of this job than I ever have. The people who I cared for taught me how to cook, farm, clean properly, manage money, and every other important thing I needed to know between the ages of 19 to 38. So, I guess my favorite thing has always been the memories I've collected and that so many wonderful people are part of my story.
