She's a Hard Worker. That's All She Knows.

We got so tickled at Ms. Charlsie yesterday when we were visiting.  One of the therapy aides came in to let us know how well she was progressing during her physical therapy sessions.  He's not the one that actually works with her, but I guess he's watched her work with the therapist, or maybe they discuss patients, I don't know.  Anyway, he told us that "she works her buns off" and that she was wearing the therapist out!  She has the ability to walk backward with "spatial awareness" and most people they see can't do that.  He bragged on her for a few minutes and then left.

Her face absolutely LIT up!  She kept saying, "I can't believe he said that about me.  He's not even my therapist!"  She was so proud.  Her brother, Lloyd, asked her if she worked that hard when she used to play basketball (in the 30's) and she said, "Oh, yes!!"  She has the best attitude and sees the positive in every situation.

Dave said none of what the man said surprised him.  "She's a hard worker.  That's all she knows."

We are so blessed to know Ms. Charlsie!
