Most of them anyway. Approximately 15 residents enjoyed the story of the Immanuel Quilt.
Unexpectedly, the one whom I was told falls asleep immediately after her lunch time medication, stayed awake, alert, and engaged for the entire presentation. She loved the quilt and the story it represented and could not wait to tell her daughter about it that evening.
A few women had been quilters so they shared their stories about the quilts they had made. I enjoyed listening as they recalled happy memories of their quilting days.
An added blessing to this day were my cousins stopping in to hear the presentation. Neither of them had I seen for about 40 years. I had recently learned Robin had moved from Texas to Greenwood this spring. I called her with only a three hour notice and she rearranged her schedule to come. To my surprise she brought Shelly too!
Robin like me enjoyed interacting with the women. God spoke to her in a way I would not have seen coming. Robin loves the elderly and her personality shows it. Before we left she picked up an application to be a volunteer there!
I want to thank Tracy, the Activities Director, for inviting me. Tracy’s enthusiasm for the Immanuel Quilt and her likening its story to that of The Star of Bethlehem story was incredible. The staff at Greenwood Meadows are kind folks.
This was a blessed day!
