"FEELING BETTER,TODAY"

                Ladies,I was really feeling Bad on Christmas but I am feeling much better today ,now that it's all over.Sorry if I depressed anyone with my last journal,it was just how I was feeling at the time!      Went back to work today,I like working it keeps my mind sane. I have this client that comes in for group,he's a young man in his 30's,I feel so sorry for him,he lives alone ,no Family and has mental problems,reminds me of Penny.I am not suppose to be close to clients but he just needs a friend and I feel like a Mom to him.He doesn't have a TV and I want to get him one,so I think I'll ask the CEO first.Also I told him I was making a pork roast and sauerkraut for New Years and he said"That sounds good,I am not having anything" so I said I would bring him some,he was so Happy.I hope I am doing the right thing?I will ask a supervisor but now I told him I have to bring it,I won't go back on my word,if I get in trouble--Oh well!!!      I work in a place where there are alot of under privledged people,I try not to get too close but it is like Penny told me to help this young man.Does that sound weird? I need to do it for me to make me feel better and to help him,he needs a friend.     I hope all you ladies are having a good day and have a Happy New Year as good as you can. I will not second guess myself,I will do what I see what is right.I am making homemade soup,smelling pretty good,comfort food I need it tonite,it's snowing and cold,in my PJ'S and just chilling.Love all you ,   LOVE ," FEELING BETTER,TODAY"(can't promise you I'll be feeling this way everyday!)

Good! So glad you are feeling better. And, we know that you will have good and bad days...so just enjoy the good ones any time they come :) I think the food will be fine for your client...check on the tv with the CEO...you are so kind...I agree...Penny probably wants you to reach out...love and hugs...Karen

You are today my hero for helping that poor man. Just make sure it is ok with your supervisor so you don\'t get into trouble in your employ and please be careful. Hugs to you. BarbaraWawa

It must be very hard to work among the poor and be told to virtually ignore their needs...I guess I don\'t understand that kind of thinking. I am one who will ruffle feathers if I have to conform to the rules of an uncaring world....you are doing the right thing...let your heart be your guide and let your head tell you to take someone along.(for safety) You are doing something good for someone less fortunate. What a gift! I would love to do that for others. You are a saint. God bless you and also the young man who so desperately needs someone who cares. Love, Dale....Brandon\'s Mom

I meant the \"thinking\" of the secular world...not you! Just wanted to clarify that one. Oh, could you send that picture to me in an email...the one of Jesus welcoming a saint into heaven? lensgirl53@yahoo.com Love...Dale. Brandon\'s Mom

Ups and downs emotionally--so common. Hope worked out ok between the young man and you\'re helping him out. Like others have said here, just be careful! It\'s unfortunate we live in a world where the urge to help has to be balanced with the need for safety, (especially for women I feel) but such is the world we live in these days. Hugs, Donna

I love the photo of Jesus hugging one of our children - just noticed it today, wonder if that is a coincidence or what. It\'s beautiful!
