Chasin' down a Hoodoo...

After visiting a friend's elderly father tonight, I wanted to encourage all y'all to visit a nursing home sometime if it's within your capacity to do so.  With our busy lives these days, it's so easy to forget the elderly esp those who, through circumstance, are placed in nursing homes.  Lord have mercy on these dear, dear souls.

Blessed are they who understand my faltering step and palsied hand.
Blessed are they who know that my ears today must strain to catch the things they say.
Blessed are they who seem to know that my eyes are dim and my wits are slow.
Blessed are they who looked away when coffee spilled at the table today.
Blessed are they with a cheery smile who stop and chat for a little while
Blessed are they who never say, you’ve told that story twice today.
Blessed are they who know the ways to bring back memories of yesterdays.
Blessed are they who make it known that I’m loved, respected and not alone.
Blessed are they who know I’m at a loss to find the strength to carry the Cross.
Blessed are they who ease the days on my journey Home in loving ways.
