Well, I just had a very enlightening, if brief conversation. Those of you who know me well know that there is pretty much nothing to stop me from getting done what needs to be done or attending to what I see as my responsibilities. For example: I went back to work 2 days after major abdominal surgery, I have gone to work when I could not stand up straight and even tried to go to work after falling down a flight of stairs. My philosophy has been "well nobody else is going to do it and no one else is going to put money in the bank so suck it up."

What this is all leading up to is my friend Cat has not been feeling well lately and suffering from intermittent bouts of dizziness and being light headed. I just called her to see how she is doing and she tells me she is trying to get the lawn mowed before it rains. I asked her if she thought that was wise and her response was "well it needs to get done." I told her to remember this the next time she chastised me for pushing myself when she thought I shouldn't be and she said "WHO DO YOU THINK I LEARNED IT FROM?"

Now, honestly both of us were adults when we met, but she says before she met me she would have just ignored it and thought ",I don't feel well so why bother." I think I have corrupted another person. I am not sure this is a good thing or a bad thing, but I am honestly glad to see she is being more responsible in her life. That was always the one thing to bother me about her approach to life, but I think I have created a monster.
