Merry Christmas in April

Today we had a surprise. White stuff! I didn't take any pictures because I was nowhere near my camera. I heard one of Santa's elves yodeling Christmas carols while shuffling down the hall. He made me smile.

I found some heroes on the inside today, residents who rally round and encourage fellow "inmates," and I was blessed. Together we coaxed a discouraged resident to take a little lunch. She wasn't having any of it from me, but her friend soon talked her into taking a few spoonfuls of soup. After an incident we won't mention, which included a set of new clothes, she came to the conclusion that perhaps she was loved in spite of it all. The lunch was eaten and I saw her a while later chatting happily with a volunteer. I've decided it's a group effort. (Today you get a picture of Mom and Rachel because that worked best when it was a group effort too.)

Next week I'll have a few days off. Perhaps I'll have a story that doesn't have anything to do with class or work.


  1. We had frost but no snow! Although this morning it was cold enough for snow! I'm surprised your singing elf didn't get hit with flying pillows or something. ha.

    1. They'd surely have thrown snowballs if they could have.
