Scatter “kindness” wherever your go…
Last evening while getting Mom ready for bed, we reflected a bit on the day. One of my observations was that regardless of how good or bad the day has been, Mom always has a smile and a twinkle in her eye as we tuck her in for the night. And for the most part is cheerful throughout her awake hours! We are truly blessed in so many ways.
The good days certainly outnumber the bad – likely 50 to 1. That’s pretty good odds when I hear from others who are providing care.
We’ve learned to see what she loves, holds dear and then try to emulate that in ways she can feel the love too. She’s sprinkled a lot of love and kindness in her 85 years — Mom has always been known for being kind, wise and gentle.
