  • How absolutely beautiful, Colleen! I worked for many years in Nursing Homes, and learned that the residents gave me back more than I ever gave them, and they ALL had something to teach me. God bless you for visiting these often forgotten folks, and for taking your children as well. I guarantee the folks will talk about your visit for weeks to come!

  • I applaud you for being so thoughful and for passing that on to your grandchildren. It's so important for them to know they make other people happy for Jesus. Doing for others in Jesus' name is the best gift you can give, not only to the residents, but to the children as well. Bravo!

  • I have been going to a Seniors home every Monday morning for the past 10 years with the priest for mass, even when the priest can"t make it I will go & bring them Holy Communion. They really look forward to us coming or just myself. I look forward to it every Monday morning & feel so much joy when I leave there

  • I spurted tears at that last line: "[the residents] brought Him to me." Abundant blessings and grace to you and your daughters and to all who serve in our Lord's name. I worked at a soup kitchen every week for 7 years, initially to do good, but it evolved into a beautiful, grace-filled learning as I saw the face of my Lord in the poor and the forgotten. My daughter and my dad also volunteered for a time. In yoga, we refer to "seva", selfless service. It's a beautiful grace to be given the opportunity to serve others.
