My second thought of the day happened around 6:30, while I was talking to the cook/activities director in the kitchen of The Shepherd's Inn, an assisted living home where I work. We were talking about a resident who has Alzheimer's and how her family has stopped visiting or taking her to church on Sundays. Lauryne, the cook, then said something that really hit me,
"Once you get old, you turn invisible."
and the sad thing is, it's the truth. I had always kind of known that, but after working at The Shepherd's Inn for a year or so, I know it's true. Families just throw their mom's or their dad's into some home or another, and then they are "freed" from all responsibilities and hardly give them the time of day anymore. This thought stuck in my head for that whole day as I helped my old ladies get ready, eat, and relax. It stuck with me from then until now...and it's so sad. I'm not too worried about it, because as I said earlier I believe Jesus is coming back, and soon.
So those were my two major thoughts for Sunday...just a little food for thought.
