Today's Takeaway

On Tuesday, we visited our third nursing home. This nursing home was different because it reminded me a lot of the assisted living facility my grandmother lives in. It started to upset me because I had not seen her in a while. My family and I visit her every Sunday after church, and because I went to GMBA campout and then straight to Youth in Action, I had not seen her in a few weeks. My grandmother is almost 93 years old, so I try to spend as much time with her as I can. While we were at the nursing home, I realized that it is OK that I have not seen my grandma or been able to make her smile, but I did make someone else's grandma smile.

Today's Tickler

Something silly that happened on Tuesday was the obsession with "Frozen," a children's movie that is very popular right now. I have not yet seen the movie "Frozen," but I do know the songs. While we were in the van on our way to a nursing home, someone decided to play songs from "Frozen." I kid you not. It was as if they rehearsed it because the entire van, even Brother Mike Nuzzi, belted out all the songs in unison.
