Yesterday my little girl danced for the patients at the nursing home. Something I love about the small town nearby, as well as this rural area, is that people seem to have deep compassion for the elderly. Maybe it is because their relatives are generally close by, but most of our new friends and neighbors around here talk of and visit their elderly relatives often. I love it! Yesterday, sweet little ballerinas danced and gave out presents. I found myself wiping away tears at how easy it is to spread joy and how often I do not take the time to do these important little things, giving my time away to the seemingly "bigger things". Planning regular visits back to this facility. Praying to have the eyes and mind of Christ as I decide how to re-prioritize our time in 2012. So excited for Christmas and the New Year! Much to celebrate and enjoy and relish!
