The solarium is one room over from the 90-year old’s double-occupancy Nursing Home room. The solarium permanently doubles as overflow parking for resident’s wheelchairs that if left in their rooms, would crowd their already tight living quarters.
i’m thankful for overflow parking, even though it isn’t aesthetically enhancing the solarium.
There’s a long list for why i’m thankful versus the easy list for “why doesn’t the Nursing Home find a more visually pleasing solution?”

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
Arriving late to volunteer last week was a huge aha moment and blessing. We normally arrive around 8:00am and deliver big boxes of food to needy Families in West Orange County Florida on Thanksgiving morning.
In 14 years, we have never arrived as late as 9:00am, and what we discovered was awesome. The Families ran out before the food did. Hallelujah.
Dear Son, I was wondering about my own temptation to go through the motions, like last night as we said our dinner time prayer. I wanted to add an additional, timely petition that all homeless people would have a warm place to sleep. But I didn’t. Last night (Jan 4) was, after all, Orlando’s coldest night in a year.
Anyone else ever feel like this? If yes, how do you overcome it? If no, how do you avoid it?
