An adorable woman named Betty White
Betty White, a person I admire a great deal, because she has brought so much happiness into my life, laughter and her good deeds...yes, those are her callings.
When I was younger and living at home, my mother used to tell me how much she liked Betty, so as an adult I watched Betty in whatever program or movie she was in.
I moved to the Midwest in the early 80's and remembered feeling so lonely and far away from family, friends and all that was familiar, until I saw Betty on TV. I felt like I was at home hearing her voice, reminding me of my mother because of how mom felt about her...especially now since mom had passed.
Five years later I moved again, and again I felt lost and alone being away from all that was familiar...until the show "The Golden Girls"...I was so happy laughing again, seeing that lovely face, hearing that voice and just feeling at home with laughter...every night we went to sleep with laughter in our hearts after watching the show....Rose Nylund was my favorite character.
To me laughter is one of the most important things in my life, it makes you feel good mentally and physically. Since I'm not impressed with famous people I have no desire to meet any of them, but Betty White...she is the only actress I have ever wanted to meet, she makes me laugh and feel good inside, I really admire her. Watching the reruns I still laugh, it never gets old for me.
An actress, a comedian, a show host and an animal rights activist... - all rolled into one....
I can't believe how much she resembles my mom in this photo above.
