Have you ever walked down the halls of a nursing home?
In most of them, it’s a heartbreaking sight.
I read a blog post that moved my heart…I hope it moves yours as well.
Piglet in Portugal has an award-winning blog in…you guessed it…Portugal. Her tales about her vegetable garden will have you rolling on the floor…her sense of humor is apparent in every post she does.
The post she did about people in nursing homes won’t make you laugh…but I hope it will make you smile as you think about what you can do to bring a moment of happiness to an elderly resident of a nursing home.
Parents: how about reading Wilfred Gordon McDonald Partridge, a picture book by Mem Fox about a little boy who lives next door to a home for the elderly? Then you and your child can talk about how you can make them smile…maybe make a card or picture and deliver it to a local nursing home.
I’ll be reviewing that book in my next post.
