They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness, and shall sing of thy righteousness. Psalms 145:7
Mother has been in the Nursing Home now for almost a year...This collage is of some of her belongings that were sold at a rummage sale in the apartment where she moved from.
The picture on the top right that shows the wallpaper is in her bedroom at the nursing home...The little plaque "Jesus Never Fails" Mom painted several years ago and I am happy she was able to take that memory with her to the nursing home. I gave her the little musical doll in 1999 which plays the song "In the Good Old Summer Time." Mother had been ill during that time period and had a short stay in the hospital...I bought the little doll in the hospital gift shop and took care of Mom for 6 weeks until she recovered.
Mother will be 102 years old on July 18th...she has been diagnosed as having dementia, which saddens me, but I have many good memories of her ...She was a very talented articulate and intelligent woman in her day. She was an artist, a musician, she wrote poetry, she gave piano lessons in her home for several years, and she was a church organist for 75 years..She also played for funerals and weddings...She was able to take her piano with her to the Nursing Home where she plays for the residents and she still remembers the notes.
