beauty day

Tracy / August 28, 2013

We’ve been visiting Grandmother a couple of times each week.

I work on her nails every couple of weeks. On visits when I’m not doing her nails, I’ll roll and spray her hair. A few visits ago, I trimmed it a bit.

She seems to enjoy being pampered, and we enjoying visiting with her.

This last week, we treated her to a special beauty day at the salon (located in the nursing home). I did her nails and they did her hair.

Meredith had asked if she could come along and have her nails done, too.

Grandmother laughed watching her wave her nails around. Meredith told her how beautiful she was. It was such a good day.

I am so blessed to have her here. I love her so very much.

I remain impressed with this nursing home.

There are always things I would change, but they seem to be good to her.

As I watched one woman caring for Grandmother last week, I shared these verses with her:

Matthew 25:37-40

“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

She teared up and told me it was one of the kindest things anyone had ever said to her. It’s sweet to see these folks ministering to those in need.
