I went to the nursing home again today since I had barely put a dent into her bills and accounts that were past due. I walked up to the front desk and before I could talk to the front desk person, I hear, "Ahhhhhh". I turned around and there she was (her name is Mary) smiling so big. She was saying hi to me. I went to her and rubbed her arm and told her that I was so happy to see her. I asked how she was doing and she started to make sounds that I could only define as her saying that she was happy to see me too and that she was doing good. I told her, "I told you I would be back and I am." It truly made my day to see her smiling. Unfortunately, I worked so efficiently that all of her bills were paid and sorted through today so there won't be a need for me to help out with her bills BUT I do intend to visit her this week and bring the cookies to her. I made a promise and I'm going to keep it.
Thank you all for your sweet comments. Trust me, if I could get paid just loving on the elderly people or being a Big Sister through the Boys and Girls Club...but even if I don't get paid, I'm going to volunteer. That's the plan!
