December 15, 2008 ~ Giving to Those Who Gave

I know this picture doesn't look like much. Every year our home schooling group goes caroling at a retirement home for the elderly who need assisted living. It is pretty crowded there, and 5 floors of cramped, overly warm corridors while 75 of us make our way through them.

Many cannot even come to their doors, so try to go slowly. It means so much to them when we stop, give them hugs, kiss their cheeks, hold their hands, look straight into their eyes and wish them a sincere "Merry Christmas!"

So here is a part of our group, in the small lobby, organizing to begin spreading Christmas cheer to those who have often given their lives to others, and are left alone, here in this assisted living tower.

Simple singing for people at Christmas. It can really mean a whole lot to them!

I always enjoy hearing from others. If you become a regular commenter, I'll assume you are being friendly and pretty much comment regularly right back. :o) God bless and have a terrific day!
