Attitude is Everything

Attitude is everything… The 92 year-old petite, well-poised and proud lady, who is fully dressed each morning by eight o’clock, with her hair fashionably coiffed and makeup perfectly applied, even though she is legally blind, moved to a nursing home today. Her husband of 70 years passed away, making the move necessary. After many hours of waiting patiently in the lobby of the nursing home, she smiled sweetly when told her room was ready. As she maneuvered her walker to the elevator, I provided a visual description of her tiny room, including the eyelet sheets that had been hung...

Child Activity

This is a fun and easy idea I saw online. One of the things I always like to have at the house is clear contact paper. There are so many uses for this awesome stuff!
