Wednesday Koffee Klatch
     If you are new to this forum family then you may be wondering what kind of goofy question is that on a health care forum. idea   We all suffer with medical conditions and with most of us there is pain involved...sometimes a lot of pain. Or maybe you are the loved one of one of these persons. This forum is all about how we help and support each other, how we gain back more quality to our lives, and how we can learn and share what we gain along the way and hopefully make not only our lives better but the lives of others who come to join us.

      But we need to also remember that there is the other side of life...the side that isn't concentrated on illness and pain. That's why we started the daily Koffee Klatch. This is a time to laugh, reminisce, chit-chat about the silly things in our lives...all fun things and no pain. In fact the 'P' word is not allowed...  turn    So each day we share our thoughts or experiences on a different topic. Often it includes food, sometimes we talk about our past, and other times we just get goofy! Laughter is our goal. So, please join us whether this is your very first day on Healing Well or you're a seasoned veteran.
Daily Question:
Have you ever heard the phrase "Don't just tell me you love me, show me"?
What do you do to show the people in your life how much you love them?

TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood

I sit and let my niece vent to me all of her teenage problems. She just started college and she's trying to adjust to adulthood. She's lived with me for a good part of her life with and without her mom. These last two years after her mom remarried and moved to another state I've been a substitute mom.
My other nieces and nephews that I don't get to see much, I try to do special things for them when they are around.
I share a house with my mom and dad also. Many times their Social Security checks run out before the month is up. If I see that they are low on some household item that they need I will go to the store and buy it for them. Mom always wants to reimburse me for anything I buy for them, but I pretend that I lost the receipt and I cannot remember how much it was. She eventually forgets that I bought her something. She likes to jokingly call me "moneybags". I'm just happy to help them out.
During Christmas time we like to get together and give the kids all presents. The adults in my family all agreed not to buy presents for each other because many of them do not have much money. However, I prefer to give them all something for Christmas. They always tell me that I shouldn't had done it, but I love to see the happiness on their face.

At school I'm always on the lookout for a child in need. I love to play Secret Santa to them. Of course I'm always spending lots of money on my students.
