Today was different........
By the time that I got there, he was already seated in the class with the 6 women that regularly attended. Usually, we focus upon anxiety reduction techniques and a meditation. Today was different. We talked about childhood memories. The group reminisced about the many ways that bathtubs were used if you were lucky enough to have one. They stored food with ice for parties, allowed once a week bathing and at times held a live carp for making gefilte fish. If you want to read a great story about this, please read
The Carp in the Bathtub by Barbara Cohen and illustrated by Joan Halpern.
Uncle Harry , who has had difficulty speaking for the past couple of years, was sharing along with everyone else. In fact, I have not heard him talk this much since he entered the Assisted Living facility.
All the women were cheering him on as he bravely communicated facts about his life.
I was in awe.............
