This week's "Here's To Your Health" is a continuation of Sister Ruth's story. We ended last week's story with...it doesn't matter what new-comers smell, look, or act like, or how much money they have, they need help and since we were once sick too, we unconditionally love them; until they can learn to love themselves...You have no idea what this meant to me.

I'd check the charts and sure enough I was there alright because they were in my handwriting, but I didn't want them to know that! I was really scared because I couldn't predict what would happen.
