It takes "Special People" to take care of "Special People".
Author's Notes:
I use to work in Nursing Homes, where I would take care of those who were mentally impaired, physically challenged, and older people who's families simply stuck them in there, it seemed, so they would not have to deal with them. It was the very most rewarding, yet tremendously heartbreaking job I have ever had. I have always believed the above quote, which I think I made up myself, I'm not sure. Anyway, I just wanted to share this with u all.

It does take a special person to do the things that not many would or could do, this is a very wise quote Jillian, and for you to do what you have done makes you one of those special people. It takes a lot of heart and compassion to do the difficult jobs. Henry

This is a good quote you should take ownership of. It is true. We are all special and the one's that require more attention by people devoted to care is exceptional acts, like the special ed teacher or you at the nursing home.

This is a wonderful quote Jillian.
Many years ago I worked in a nursing home for
a brief time and I agree it can be most rewarding
but the heartbreak was more than I could take.

Thank you for sharing this Jill....IT is definately a very true statement. I work at a funeral home and it's my job to pick up these people when they pass away...sometimes the family is there crying when I come, but sometimes they are alone with no one to mourn them and it just breaks my heart to truly are a special person with a wonderful heart to help out like that.
