My volunteer job is so fulfilling.Sad,happy,angry,confused are all feelings i experience on a daily basis.See my job is with people that no longer have homes.They have a place to stay but not a home is the top complaint.They are senior citizens.Some have alzheimers,some have mild dementia,some are just placed there to live out their final years.I walk in the door and see some glum faces that brighten upon seeing me.Susan they all holler!!I have a surprise for everyone,I yelled.They had stunned looks when i pulled out a cd player and popped some oldies in.There was laughter,singing,dancing,flirting,refreshm
ents from the nurses
and just alot of fun and smiles.I then pulled out coloring books and crayons
markers and paints.To say they were giggling and enjoying the day was an
understatement.Joy,a nurse walked over and hugged me tight.Susan,ya know when they are needing you Huh?I laughed and looked over at the slumbering sweethearts and smiled...they cheer me up so much!Oldies and Oldies go together!What a great time!!
