I happen to be married to a Nursing Home Administrator (though he never calls himself that…people who work in “nursing homes” are the only ones who never call them “nursing homes”). I consider his job as a ministry to the elderly. Interacting with the elderly is a gift of his that very few people our age have. Anyway, he thought everyone should know that next week is National Nursing Home week!
I truly believe that the elderly are the most neglected people in our society today. For some reason, we have this false belief that, because they are “old”, they don’t have as much worth. How wrong this is! We could learn so much if we would take the time to ask questions and listen. These are people who have experienced a full lifetime! They have wisdom beyond belief!
But this year, the boys and I are going to take these Sunshine Cookies instead!
Or you could make flower cards using muffin tin liners:
Or you could even make a rainbow mosaic!
