"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" My first job as a junior in highschool was an orderly in a nursing home/hospital in a small town in southern Illinois, Now 40+ years later I am a caregiver in a residential home for approximately115 men with mentally, phiysically problems., and have been for 4 years. In 2008 and 2009 I assisted in caring for my mother and two room-mates whom all three died of lung cancer. It was this that showed me what I was capable of, but only by the grace of God this did I come through this strengthend in my faith and love for others. I am 61 young and was diagnosed with MS in 2010 but again with Gods mercy and grace I have no lingering effects. I love photography, antiqueing, and fishing, also cooking.
