We have exceptional delights while visiting the nursing facility where my mother lives. Upon visiting such a place often enough you can not but help to allow the other residents to bury deep into your heart. We really do not dwell on the fact that we will not be going there indefinitely..it is for a season, as in there is "a time for every purpose under heaven."
But we love our extra add-a-longs. They look for us, they smile, they wave, and if able, they shuffle to be with us. Life resides here and we embrace it.
