a harvest in Autumn

Autumn felt transcendental in its atmosphere last night. We brought Patti home for dinner on our patio and some family time.


When I picked Patti up I could hear her all the way down the hall, laughing in the common area with other residents. Then not long after dinner she turned to me and asked to go back, she felt like she had “abandoned” her friends.


With progression 24/7 homecare was increasing isolation and loneliness. Socialization and companionship in a 24/7 care environment were two of many hopes when we began this process


                 Believe in yourself, your neighbors, your work,

          your ultimate attainment of more complete happiness.

                              It is only the farmer

                 who faithfully plants seeds in the Spring,

                    who reaps a harvest in Autumn.
