Merry Christmas at St. Mary’s Care Center

SPONSORED POST. “Twas the night before Christmas at St. Mary’s Care Center, and all of the residents were looking their best, their glasses, how sparkly, their wrinkles how merry”
A bed sock was taped to each walker, in hope that Santa would bring some soft candy and soap.
The grandkids had sent some Christmassy crafts, like angels in snowsuits and penguins on rafts.
The bedpans, so shiny, all stood in a row, reflecting the night lights magnificent glow. The supper so festive, the joy wouldn’t stop, was creamy warm oatmeal with sprinkles on top.
Old Grandfather Dooly was feeling his oats, proclaiming that reindeer were nothing but goats!
Our resident wonderer was seated in her chair, in hopes that at bedtime she still would be there.
Then out at the north door there arose quite a clatter, the nurses and aids jumped up to see what was the matter, a little old man all decked out in red, went to each residents room and softly patted their heads.
He whispered “Merry Christmas my friends we meet one more time” then he left a small angle to keep them in line.
As you celebrate your Christmas please keep us in mind, and visit our residents when you have a bit of time. we still enjoy a smile and a friendly hello, that’s all we need at St. Mary’s to make our
Christmas glow.
Merry Christmas and
God bless you and your families!
