Dec. 9/17

Only a few days ago (Dec. 3, “For Love”), I shared with you a story of the devotion of a loving daughter to her parents…I received the news yesterday that her father had just passed away–I have a feeling that saying “goodbye” may be a very regular part of caring for seniors…

For every sad story however, there is another story to celebrate the humorous side…a close friend of ours recently told us about her mother who in her mid 90’s still enjoys her daily cocktail!  Her daughter was explaining to her mother that there was going to be a slight change in the routine of who the care providers would be that would come to her home her each day, and assured her that the new staff would still make sure she had her “cocktail hour”.  Her mother became concerned about the implications and  immediately replied, “Well I’m not supplying cocktails for all the workers too!”
