Feeling from the heart!

"All my life I have a family, all of sudden I am alone; my children are gone, my husband is gone, and I dont have the people around me that I have had all my life. To me, that is loneliness." -90 year old woman-

"I am glad that I am still alive"

"I am glad that I am still alive" said by 89 year old woman. She added by saying, "I hope God will continue to give me good health." Today she was very weak but at least that sentence came out from a mouth. It is always a new learning to new sentences, and statements spoken by the elderly individuals.

...a long hanging bridge...

I met an elderly woman yesterday. She told me that she never heard about Borneo Island. She said this sentence to me, "You know, it is hard to be alone and unable to do work like I used to do before." It is a kind of "handicapped" and I am lonely." I asked her to to make the connection between the two words-"handicapped" and "Loneliness", she said, "it is similar to a long hanging bridge". This is a profound statement.
