Another hard night...

This evening, while working at the nursing home, another of the residents passed away... (It was the man who told me I reminded him of his mother because she always hummed/sang while working too.)

I had planned to do a picture post of our garden and other things tonight, but I just don't feel like doing that anymore.... Maybe tomorrow night?

So instead of pictures, I'll leave you with a quote from my daily flip-calendar, one that seems fitting for this day:

"Be glad you had the moment." ~Steve Shagen

I AM glad for the time I had to get to know Thor (even if he did eat pickled pigs feet and head cheese--uggg!) and value even more the time I have with the other living residents!

Hi sweetie! Aww, I am SOO sorry! HUGS! He seemed like such a sweet man (I read that post, although I didn't have time to comment, sorry). That's one of the hard things about working in nursing homes and such I suppose. :( I know it's sad when I hear of elderly people we know in the church who have passed away (not to say that there isn't some rejoicing for the saints in that case though). ;)

I've been meaning to email you dear! Maybe I'll do that today and try to cheer you up. :) I miss talking with's been so busy this summer for us both! :( Hopefully once it's colder weather again (looking forward to that THIS year! Lol! It's been sooo hot!)...we'll be able to email/comment on blogs a "little" more frequently. ;)

I HAVE been keeping you in my thoughts and prayers though, even though we haven't been much in contact. ;)

Love and HUGS!!!!
Have a Blessed day sweetie! :)

I'm sorry, Cora. It must be hard on you workers when you loose a resident. And I suppose you see it more often than most of us. Blessings and comfort are my prayers for you this day.
