A Story of Love and Thanksgiving

Recently I was witness to a few moments of love and caring so heartwarming it has left an indelible impression on me.

 Many of you know that I had been in rehab facility after  having a hip replacement surgery. I am now at home receiving excellent in- home health care. Every day in every way I am getting better and better.

I met patients of all ages in all stages of recovery.

One day while waiting for a friend to arrive, I sat in the common area. An elderly woman was sitting across from me with her daughter. This was a woman who was having a very difficult time while in rehab and had taken several bad falls while trying to recover.

I watched while the patients daughter gently put curlers in her mothers hair. She then softly took her hands in hers and buffed her Mother's fingernails. What touched me so was the look in both the Mother and Daughters eyes.

The endearing gratitude in the elderly ladies eyes and the daughters eyes shining with the everlasting love for her Mother.

I thought about how a touch, a glance, holding a hand; something that may seem so very simple can give one a reason to go on, a purpose, something for which to be forever grateful . 

We all have the power to make a difference.

Happy Thanksgiving to You and your Loved Ones.

Love and Hugs
