Words of Wisdom by St. Therese

Such a beautiful quote! I believe that every one of us has a talent- find your gift and use it to make someone’s day ❤

She said, “May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that you are born of faith in yourself and others. May you see the gifts that you received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us.”  ST. Therese

“In that moment” – a tender thought about assisted living and death by Allie Carpenter,RN

This was just too precious not to share-  this was written by my daughter Allie ❤

Thought of the day. People often ask me how I can work with the elderly and be around death. I thought about it for a while but it didn’t take me long to come to a conclusion. These people come to my facility for the same reason. Not to get better and leave, but to fulfill the rest of their life and die. My job is to make them laugh, care for them, love them and most importantly give the last years of their life quality. These people become part of my family and in some ways I am part of theirs.. built in grandmas and grandpas. Death is never easy. For me it is bittersweet. I get to be a part of their last memories. Sometimes, I even have the privilege to hold the hand of someone I have come to care about while they take their last breaths. In that moment I feel important. In that moment I know I have made a difference in at least one person’s life. In that moment I know my purpose. Awesome.
