A couple of years ago I would go out to this nursing home not far from my home and visit with the residents. This nursing home sits in a very picturesque setting but it appears to have been forgotten by society. At Christmas we went and played Santa; at Easter we took baskets; and at Valentine's Day we played cupid. I enjoy doing this. I had to eventually stop because I could not afford it any longer. Some day I will be able to do it again. At the end of this blog, I share some photos from those times. I would love to someday have a small hands ministry for things such as this. As you will see from the pictures, it brought such joy to them. Seeing their joy brings me joy! Even Foxie Anne joined in on the fun and shared her love with them.
My son has me hopping right now. With soccer and all his other senior activities, it is a lot. I am enjoying every moment of it. On the 13th of November is his homecoming. For the seniors, if you have a male student, the mom walks him down the catwalk and if female, the dad walks him. As they are walking, they will read over the loud speaker a letter to the parent from the child. I cannot wait to hear what my son has said about me, but if he thought I was a cry baby before now, WOW IS HE IN FOR A SURPRISE! Tears are going to flow!!! I have asked my oldest brother to come along to take pictures and videotape the event. I have to go buy something pretty to wear ... smile:)!
Had lunch with my middle grandson yesterday. It is always great to have quality time with him, or any of my grandsons for that reason. He is going through difficult times so please keep him in prayer. It is not easy being a young lad today. The world is so ugly at times, as are people. He will rise above all of this adversity in his life because grandma is praying for him and now you are too! Thank you!
Here are the pictures I wanted to share: Enjoy!
