I am so gullible. Or perhaps too much the idealist. I still believe in happy endings and soul mates.
My spouse is NOT my soul mate. I think I knew that going in. Soul mates can be good friends, they don't have to be married to me.
A teeny tiny part of me wishes that Prince Charming would come by and take me away from my life of drudgery. HA! Right. I wasn't meant to have a simple life. I wasn't meant to be a lady of leisure and luncheons and the Junior League.
I want to make a difference in this world. Even if that mean caring for 5 patients in whose life I made a difference. Patients who know I cared about them. I would remember them. I would learn from them. Too many people are thrown away in this society. We need to respect all people. Give them a feeling of dignity and respect. This counts for homeless people, mentally ill people, elderly people, and we need to care about the children.
I might never work for Doctors Without Borders but making a difference can be done close to home.
