Wednesday- Hoarders and challenges
The other day I happened across a show on TV, while I was putting the OWH cards together. I spent a few hours watching hoarders. I was fascinated and saddened. They actually call these people SICK
Sensitive, Intelligent, Creative and I think the K stands for knowledgeable, but don't hold me to that. I had heard of this show before, but had never watched it one of the episodes was about a man who hoarded rats, of all things. They became like his family after his wife ( age 39) had died of a sudden heart attack, they became his companions and family. The two that he started with soon became 2,000. When the neighbors started complaining about rats by his house Authorities came. They treated the man very humanely and they were very concerned with his pet rats. These actually were pets, they were domesticated rats. At the end of the show they had found homes for 500 of the rats so far, which in so doing this, is helping this man through his grieving process. I highly recommend watching at least one of these episodes-- What did I do ?
Put it this way, it was trash day in our neighborhood that night, I even borrowed my neighbors garbage can.
I have another load for the women's shelter and some for goodwill. It's not like I have a lot of stuff, but I have what I need and for that, I am grateful . That is why I want to share the card I made today. Have a SUNNY Day
