I didn’t play well at the nursing home today.  I kept making small mistakes and one or two not so small.  I couldn’t tell if my reading glasses made it worse or better.  So…..that’s how it goes.  Maybe next Sunday will go better.  One lady was really happy to be listening and encouraged me a lot.  Carol.  God bless her.  She’s the one I learned Sound of Music for, and she loved it!

  1. Aren’t you glad you learned her song? None of us is perfect and I’m sure you did swell. To be honest I’ve heard some pretty so/so music in nursing homes but it has always been well received because it’s MUSIC and its given in LOVE. I am trying hard not to envy or talent and your opportunity to love on these old folk. So what I am doing is being thankful you’re my new friend and keeping you and your nursing home adventures in my prayers.

  2. Bless your heart! Yes, yesterday Carol ( the one I learned the song The Sound of Music for) told me “I love you.” I was so touched. I left lipstick on her face!

  3. It doesn’t matter to the residents that you make a mistake or two. They only care that you are there for them. Your music to them is heavenly.
