Our friends from Minnesota spent time today with our house-mothers. The latter were treated to foot massages,pedicures and some make-up help. The women loved it-- both the givers and receivers. Our house-mothers work very hard for little money so doing this shows them (in a concrete way) that they are appreciated. As I was leaving I heard one house-mother say to another- "Hope this group comes back soon. This is fun." Our house-mothers are the front line of our care-giving so it's great that they were on the receiving end of a little nurturing today.
One of the Minnesota ladies shared a thought later in the afternoon: she has a new and personal insight into the washing of the apostles' feet by the Lord at the Last Supper.
