Some of my fondest summer memories involve sitting in a chair by the side of someone whose life experience has tripled mine. I have been volunteering at Health Park hospital for a number of years, just to have an opportunity to sit down and listen to the stories of the elderly. There is an indeterminable amount I can learn from them, and why would I pass that up? It is just so much fun to talk about their lives and choices that they made and mischief they got up to.
My mother became disabled when I was 8. So I am no stranger to caring for others and taking care of the house. I don't mind tidying up and cooking.
