We had a singer that brought his portable music machine and sang great Christmas songs encouraging all of us to join him in singing. Did you know that singing is one of the last memories that many have? Music and singing are always encouraged.
Santa along with his helper was there to help in the singing and handing out gifts to all the residents.
Santa's gift was obviously a good one....look at that smile!!
He was all smiles that evening. Makes my heart sing!!
Brie, one of our grand-girls came along to help in the celebration.
See all the happy faces.
And then the food....chocolate covered strawberries which are always a fav, the infamous hollowed-out bread loaded with spinach dip, eclairs with chocolate whipped cream and cherries, along with other tasties that were long gone before I had a chance to snap a shot. My only complaint, and I really shouldn't title this as a complaint, is that this food is sooooo messy to eat and the messy then becomes even messier when some of these folks attempt to eat it. I just grab lots of napkins and hope for the best. It's party food and a party we did have.
The facility was decorated for Christmas, every door is adorned with a wreath and there are Christmas decorations everywhere you look.
Each day of our lives may not be a good one, but there is something good in every day. The difference is usually our attitude....look for the positive and you will find the positive shine through. I find this positive attitude everytime I visit my sweetheart. Thank you and God Bless each and everyone of you that cares for our loved ones. He is happy, I am happy.
