President's Day

Today we celebrated President's Day at the Emmanuel Home with our friend Myrtle and the other residents there. The Chaplin had called us a couple weeks ago, and asked if our family would be willing to do some entertainment. The children played patriotic songs on the piano, and we sang a song together. It was fun. The residents loved it, of course. Since life in a nursing home can be somewhat monotonous, the residents always appreciate when people come and fellowship with them in some way.
After the music, the staff entertained them with some trivia games, and gave away prizes. It was a blessing to see the smiles and the laughter as the residents won patriotic stuffed animals. Our children even won some candy, which they were thrilled about, because they don't get to eat candy very often. :)
