In 2002, my best friend and cousin, was diagnosed with stage 4 MS. I watched a loving woman who enjoyed caring for others become lifeless over the years. Over the years, her condition has only worsened. But with our faith and good and the best medical care that we are able to provide to her, she is still here.
She is currently confined to a wheelchair and has partial paralysis. With the help of multiple family members we make sure that she bathes, eats good meals, is taken out for daily swim lessons and just has a good quality of life overall. Life is too short to take your loved ones for granted.

Although Channel seemed like a perfect fit for my son and signed a work contract, she gave me NO notice as to resignation within a week as she failed to mention she was looking for another job that would actually leave her completely unavailable for what she agreed to. In the end, I had no one to sit for my child the very next day. This all took me completely by surprise as Channel seemed to adore my son and he her. I do not under stand why we were deceived in this manner.
Channel was with us only a week. It seems to me that even when she signed her contract, She knew she would be leaving soon if she received jobs she had put in for However, she told us that she wanted this because of the flexibility and not wanting to work constantly. I simply didnt appreciate this and thought we were on better terms.
Very unprofessional, considering I was promised 4 weeks notice if she was to ever consider resigning from the position.
