‘Birthday girl’ was delighted

Life in a retirement home stays quite interesting.

Recently, Ruth, one of the oldest residents, turned 99. Her daughter provided a beautiful cake, which was brought to the table after our evening meal.

The lights were dimmed, and the candles were all aglow. Ruth’s face was a sight to behold – a light of wonder sparkling in her lovely eyes, and a marvelous smile lighting up her face.

I think everyone there felt privileged to be included in this momentous occasion.
