I had a good week. I am in Plymouth, Massachusetts with my dad. I saw my mom almost every day this past week and she is doing well. She seemed in good spirits and even partaking in PT. Her appetite has been fairly good. She still does not like to participate in many activities, but sits quietly and observes everything going on or takes a little nap. There are a couple of new patients since I was there in October, but when I walked in the other day it was like coming home. The activities director came running over and gave me a hug. My mom started laughing and said the queen has arrived!
There are some new staff members since I was there in October and they seem to be people who really want to do a good job and care about the patients. I had a discussion earlier this evening that every profession has employees that have a passion for their work and really care and those that are only in it for the money. The same goes for those employed in the nursing home. I can tell by the way they act, stand, interact with the patients and I also think the patients can tell. They had the patients who wanted to participate decorate a Christmas tree and color some drawings for the walls - everything looks very festive. Are you passionate about what you do? Have you found your passion?
My youngest nephew Brian spent the night with Papa and I on Friday. It's the first time he wanted to stay with us. We had a nice quiet evening - he had his own TV to watch and found where papa stashed all his junk food. We went to breakfast (I posted my first selfie of him and I on Facebook). He spent the morning in the nursing home with us and was very well behaved. He even attended the holiday fair with me - I offered his assistance if needed for lifting/toting/etc afterall he is about 5'9" and 13 so he has lots of energy. He enjoyed himself and would like to come again and help papa if needed. I am taking every opportunity to create memories. Are you creating memories for yourself and others?
A new experience today. My sister, her friend and I attended a psychic medium event. I ordered tickets weeks ago to see Matt Fraser at a nearby hotel as I have always been curious about how it works and what happens at these shows. I have to tell you it was extremely interesting. No one came forth with any messages for me and I was ok with that. Some people brought pictures or items from the person they wanted to connect with. The show was two hours and he did bring messages for a lot of people. He also used humor to help lighten the mood. I am already connected to him on Facebook, but meeting him made me realize how young he is. I felt that he was the real thing and not some person in it for the money. I would probably go again if he was in the area. If you are interested in him here is a link to his website: http://www.meetmattfraser.com/ Part of me is curious and thinks about a private session, but not sure who I want to hear from. Have you ever been to a psychic? What's your experience? Would you go again?
I am going to leave it here for tonight because I'm tired and want to get up early and got to the gym. I hope you have a good week. Take care. Chat soon. Marie
