My Mother used to tell me I should work with the elderly because when all the other kids were outside playing, I went into a room where I saw an elderly woman in a bed in a room in my Moms friends house. I was moved with compassion and had to go in a sit beside her. I will never forget when she put her frail hand on my little 11 yr old hand and gave me a warm and tender smile. I am the oldest girl of five girls, one brother, he is first born. I would say I have always been the maternal one in my family, as well as the nurturer. I think jobs dealing with children and seniors have always been the best fit for me.
