Just what I needed

I just can't seem to help feeling blah. When I heard the weather for today and the next several days all I could do was mutter "Lord have mercy". I won't bore you with posting the forecast.

Then I was feeling blah about trying to get the most groceries for the least amount of $$ possible....because....won't bore you with that either.

 I went to a discount grocery store and picked up a few things then to fill my 9 water jugs at Weis. A nice older lady was filling her 1 jug at the other water thingy. I thought to my blah self that I hope I'm that pleasant when I get older =)

After that, I went inside Weis to pick up some rolls for our dinner. There I saw Ruth. Ruth was on my staff at the Nursing Home and still works there. It's always a piece of sunshine to see her! In our conversation she said that an activity was missed on the activity calendar so some residents didn't know about it. As Ruth was helping get people together she explained that it was a mix-up. One of the gents said "We need Doris"! Ah, so sweet of him, bless his big 'ol heart! I messed up sometimes too.....I'm not perfect (but I sure as heck tried!!).

That made my day a lot brighter. Also today, I got a call asking me to sing at a Sunday morning service at the Nursing Home. It suits me and I said yes. I love the people and it thrills me to serve them in this way.

It was a pretty good day after all!

So glad it turned out to be a good day. What a wonderful opportunity to sing at the Nursing Home! May God bless.


You've been working awfully hard . . . I think you need a day off . . . come on over for tea, ok?

Some days are like that dear Doris! But then someone makes you smile and that makes the hum-drum seem to disappear:)

Have a blessed day, HUGS!

I think we should get our blah selves together and do something funny. Oh that's right - it would cost an arm and a leg just for the gas to even get together. More blah.

What an awesome thing for you to hear from Ruth!!! My former students constantly lift my spirits on FB.

I loved your post. I have days like that too.So glad you got that phone call.I know the people at the home miss you.
I'm thinking,sisters, that maybe by the time we're in a nursing home we could find one that suits all of us and it wouldn't cost us to visit together. Oh what fun!
