This past couple of weeks we have been doing pirate activities! I have to admit, I LOVE them, maybe it has something to do with Johny Depp......... Oh.... anyways it was so much fun. I know this sounds cheesy but there always seems to be a "life lesson" in the most random things.
Some of my residents have never lost their ability to have fun and stay positive. I have some residents that have so many health problems, that they have every right to just lay and bed and do nothing, and yet they always have a smile on their face. I know they are hurting and tired, but they always have a smile and a hug. I can only imagine that, this would be the "lesson of life". I once heard a quote that said, "it doesn't matter the hand we are dealt, it only matters how we play it."
When my life is over, will I be able to say that I remained positive? That I didn't crawl off to the corner, but came out swinging with all my might? I sure hope that I can live my life the way some of the amazing people I get to see everyday, have spent theirs. Anybody that can get dressed up like a pirate and come to a luncheon not feeling good, and be the hit of the party, well let's just say, I hope one day I can be even 10% that awesome!
Thanks Grandfriends! I Love you all!
Oh, and the fact the kitchen staff totally got into the pirate thing! Well, that rocks too! Life is good!
