Gwendolyne Wagnor, December 2011

The Saturday night group decided to bake cookies as part of celebrating the holidays. Christmas music was playing on a CD, and at various times everyone broke out into song together. Meanwhile, cookies baked in a small portable oven. Residents who might not normally join the group wandered down the hall to the group area and sat for awhile and enjoyed a cookie or two. Much joy and laughter was shared and a true sense of community-family was felt by all.

An excerpt from the book Encounter of the Real Kind – Musings, poetry, stories about elders, forgetfulness and life.
