Quote: Beginning Today, Treat Everyone with Kindness

Alzheimer's Quote: Beginning Today

“Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to die by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness, and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.”

– Og Mandino

    I read that and first impression was how morbid. Then I reread it and really thought about it and decided I was going to attempt to do this and see what happens.

    I adopted this technique several years ago after the unexpected death of my sister. I realized how many times I didn’t say “I Love You” and “you’re important to me”, because I assumed there would always be tomorrow. Now, as a Medical Care Giver for Alzheimer’s sufferers, I finish every interaction with this principle in mind. It makes me a more caring care giver, and results in heartfelt smiles every day from my charges. Life is short… treat it with the respect it is due!
