Today I was talking with an elderly gentleman who suddenly became sad that he couldn't remember puts of his past. We kept talking & I pulled out my I- pad & helped him to verify & learn facts. He was very grateful that I helped him cobble together some of his past.
I really enjoyed our conversations which were full of wonderful history lessons. The feeling is mutual. Thank God for the World Wide Web !!! All of the knowledge in the world at your fingertips.
It's interesting how some of the most troublesome patients/ residents of the rehab center can be wonderful conversationalists & pals if you just stop & give them some of your time & effort.
Lately when the cd runs out I turn to various folks sitting at out table & ask them about their favorite song. I then either sing it or play it on my I- pad. They get to learn about the new technology while they also get to reminisce. I love to hear their stories. I am also a hug dispenser. I Love to make people feel better.
No matter what kind of adversity tries to get in your way take a deep breath ,stand up tall & crush it under your feet.
You are a Champion
You must be victorious
Let there be no room in your mind, body & soul for negativity.
