    it was both a calling and a blessing, I have no words to accurately describe what that job did for me, I just know that I got back way more than I gave. I am actually mourning it, because serving the dying, (I was lucky to find the perfect job for me) is my life's purpose or so I thought. And now that purpose is gone. I know when I feel better I will volunteer doing something. If I ever get to nurse again, that is what I want to go back to but I highly doubt they will ever re-hire me because HR made them hold my position for over 6 months, they were not happy about that. And our hospice is the only game in town for 7 counties. So on my agenda, get much better and find a new life purpose. No big deal, I got this (not), lol.

    To me it is Joe Dominguez. Not even sure who I would put in the second place slot.

    +1 to this choice. Hard to believe he's been gone nearly 30 years. For #2, maybe Joe's partner Vicki Robin?

    Vicki Robin is quite amazing in her own right! Without a doubt.

    This one is not mainstream and certainly a lesser known name but I found her little book to be just what I needed on my retirement at age 51. Jose Hobday. A Franciscan Nun and Seneca Elder. Her book - Simple Living : The Way to Inner Freedom is full of thoughts that challenge your personal beliefs on possessions.

    Now I want to look into that book!

    Mother Teresa carried only a little bag with a few belongings in it.
