Sandy - Retired Nurse

by Sandy
(Lincoln City, Oregon USA)

I am a nurse have always been regulated to take care of both parents and now a very sick brother. Never has it ever been either sister over the last 40 years. I have tried to involve them but for every issue I hear you understand it so much better and can relate their needs in such a professional way so were just going to leave it all up to you.

I was so sick of it and nothing I said or did could change their attitude. So I decided to change my attitude and look at it differently.

First and foremost with my husband by my side we put all of this into the hands of GOD and decided we for some lucky reason had been selected to honor those we love at the hardest times in their lives.

We call our selves the parent & brother keepers and thank the good lord we have the ability to do so. We utilize every senior citizen disability service our state has to offer.

We relaxed took a deep breath and get help from neighbors and others who care about our well being. In doing so we have enriched our very own lives and it has turned this hard task into a pleasant experience.

You can't force empathy or compassion in any other human being but you can be the one person who through your HAPPY attitude makes life a little better for those who you love.
