Philanthropy

My mother moved in with me April 2014.  She is retired and has Parkinson and Alzheimer disease.  Now she wants to try and mother me.  Oh my goodness hahaha!!!

When I was a kid I always asked how to spell something, she would always say go look in the dictionary.  After years of that now – me and the dictionary, encyclopedia, and world dictionary are great friends and my go to guys.  The world of info to me is like candy to a baby!!

She lives in the world of money, she is a Taurus.

I ask her last month, what is the one thing you can give me all my life that does not cost money?  She responds, “I have no ideal”.

To give her time to think I wait a few weeks, then I say. “ma, what is the one thing you can give me all of my life that does not cost any money? She responds, “I have no ideal”.

I tell her you can give me all my life, compassion, understanding, empathy, and love, they do not cost any money.

I came across a new word the other day – Philanthropy.  So of course I had to look it up.  I say to my ma, “do you know what the word Philanthropy is?,  because I am one”.  She said, “yes I know, but I could never be one”.

Philanthropy – goodwill to fellow members of the human race; especially:  active effort to promote human welfare.
