I really had a great time at an Athens nursing home this afternoon. So often nursing homes are depressing places with overworked staff members and depressed patients. Today was different – there was a Christmas party – the mother of all Christmas parties! I saw staff members dancing with patients; I saw patients waving their arms and singing along with the (live) DJ; I suspect members singing and dancing as they delivered Swedish meatballs, shrimp, roll ups, and all the trimmings – including lots and lots of cookies! This was all sponsored by the nursing home itself. This place just exudes love, compassion, and all the things that Jesus said we should do for the “little ones” in our midst.
