My hero

on September 11, 2015

She doesn’t know she is my hero.
She works long shifts at the nursing home.
She always makes time to have a chat with Anthony and me.
She has been known to give Ming a hug!

On her days off, she makes beautifully soft comfort blankets for the residents in the dementia house.

On her days off, she collects, and organises various goods to sell in order to raise money for the nursing home. As a result, the last few boxes of stuff I was going to take to the Salvation Army shop will now be donated for this cause.

She doesn’t have to do any of this extra work.
She has her own family responsibilities, like we all do, and yet she
still
goes
the
extra
mile.

My hero, E.

    Hero E – exceptional, extra mile everyday, elevated, empathetic, energetic, essential and endearing. Lots of E words for your hero! (No pun for this one)

    What would we do without these ‘heroes’. Their kindness, thoughtfulness and sensitivity make so many lives easier.

    I had a neighbour in my old block of flats like this.

    What an absolutely splendid human being, an example to us all.

  5. She sounds like a lovely soul, and it’s equally wonderful that you would take the time to acknowledge her efforts. I’m sure that would touch *her* heart…

  7. Role models are not so easy to come by. I’m glad you shared her with us.

  8. Thank God for the heroes. We couldn’t survive without them….
