Mrs. Davis don't like to be told what she can't do. She gets up at four o'clock and drives to work to clock in by six 0'clock each morning. She is a designer and is working on making a pea coat. She is learning Spanish, has four websites, refill the machines for her vending company, writes poetry and still finds time to paint landscapes to name just a few of the things she does. Did I say she will be 92 in October!

I am here and you fail to acknowledge me as well as my worth. You want me here as long as I am in the shadows. You need me here to take on many forms of what is necessary for you. Which one of me will you need today!

Mrs. Ricks was telling me who was in the pictures on the table. She is the only one still living from those family photos. There is a photo of her parents, sisters and brothers. Many of the photos are over 100 years old. The photos include her grandparents and great grandparents. She knows the value of family photos and the history the photos hold.
Mrs. Ricks is 98 1/2 years young. She will become a centenarian on July 17th, 2012. She still rides MARTA to her doctor appointments and they find it hard to believe that she comes alone. She says it is hard for her not to be independent. She cooks for herself and is looking forward to planting her own garden on 'Good Friday.'

Serve the people and I will be rewarded. I will be rewarded with a guaranteed bus pass, government assistant, and living in poverty. My children will be afforded the opportunity to go to the worst schools in the system and if they are lucky, they will be the first in the family to receive a GED. $2.13 for serving you is NEVER enough!
Get a GOOD education is what I have always heard. I will spend the next twenty years paying back money for that GOOD education to get the GOOD job I don't have and can't get. Tuition is too damn high. One thing for sure, I have a GOOD education! Can I help the next in line please?
I will be coming around the bend to get home to you. I will be looking forward to coffee and cake as I snuggle with you around the fireplace whispering sweet nothings and watch you smile. I will be coming home to you.
