I’ve recently been going to our local nursing home to visit a relative who needs to stay there while he gets Physical Therapy and I have to say…I am thoroughly enjoying our visits with some of the other residents.
My new friend Emma is just a hoot. This woman has it all together and she makes sure everyone else does too. She’s sharp as a tack. Every day she wheels into everyone’s rooms every day to make sure they’re all stocked up on Kleenex and other essentials. If not, she’s off in her wheelchair to bring them more.
In one of our conversations, I asked her if she has children and then grandchildren. She said yes, she has children, but no grandchildren.
She said, and I quote…”They’re getting to be past the age where they can have kids.”
I looked at her quizzically and said “How old are they?”
She responded “68 and 64”.
Today, take time to laugh.
ps…the names of my new friends have been changed to protect their identity. 😉
pps…yes, that’s me and my husband with our youngest daughter who’s now 16.
