Nursing Home Christmas Celebration 2011

 What fun and joy visiting these delightful elderly women.  Ages from 80 to 102.  The women were eagerly awaiting our arrival.

We danced, we sang and even had a 10 year old boy with us who sang and played the guitar. We gave each woman a new scarf, a warm pair of socks and a big hug.

A friend made a delicious cake and cookies that we all shared and enjoyed.  This was a warm loving experience for all and not soon to be forgotten.

What a way to grow old – not confined and still able to be creative.

Several expats plan to visit on a monthly basis and bring their little dogs.

These women have very few visitors and you can see from their expressions how happy they are to have visitors.

Many thanks to all of you who joined us to bring some joy to the lives these lovely elders of Ecuador.
