It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

Life certainly has a way of refocusing a person on what is really important. Morning Light staffers Felencia, Madison, Rachael and Penny found that out first hand thanks to a celebration held July 24th at our Abbie Hunt Bryce Home. We marked another Christmas in July! The event was supported this year through a Samerian Foundation grant.

It’s a reality of what a hospice residence is all about: those living under our care in mid-year may not see another traditional holiday season. Folks like Ken, who is dealing with a cruel terminal illness. This day we took care of that. We put a smile on his face. 

Resident Deb was so excited she didn’t want to let her afghan go- a donation for all residents from Home supporter Christine Merzario -even though it was hardly chilly!

A modest holiday feast, with festive desserts, and gifts that reminded our residents just how special they are.

Home admissions halted for a few months. Pennwood activities were suspended. Rolling For Hope- cancelled. The annual Memorial Garden Remembrance on October 10th now being planned as a virtual event.

All that somewhat forgotten this day by remembering that the next day was July 25th- six months before Christmas. It was our privilege to make sure that 10 hospice residents got that special holiday feeling at least once more.

O – O- Tidings of comfort and joy-comfort and joy!
