Tuesday Kalissa and I loaded up ten of our little chicks and took them for a ride to local care center where Kalissa works.
As part of the days activities, we showed the residents the chicks and let them pet them. We answered all sorts of questions and heard many of their stories of growing up on the farm. The residents really enjoyed it and to be honest, we did too!!
Can you believe that 11 days ago twenty eight baby chicks fit in the box…now only ten fit. Those little chickies and growing so fast!!
I know it’s easy to avoid nursing homes. I know visiting them always puts questions in our own minds about what we’ll be like as we age. Had we not had this scheduled, I probably would have put it off or cancelled being life here has been so hectic lately.
But…I am SO, SO glad we went. It was worth the trip. We could easily see that the residents truly enjoyed seeing the chicks….and just like everything in life, seeing a happy smiling face and knowing you were apart of making that happen is worth anything you gave up to make it happen.
