Today’s prompt asks about Christmas music and caroling. When I was a kid, we went with Girl Scouts to the local nursing home. At the end of our singing, we helped the people back to their rooms. One year I had a woman who didn’t talk. That wasn’t as bad as the next year. That lady led me right to the front door! I was probably about 10 years old and didn’t know what to do. She begged me to take her home with me. She said no one ever came to see her. Needless to say, that was the last year I went caroling. My daughter went for her first time last week and she really enjoyed it. I don’t think they have kids help patients back to their rooms any more. Good idea!
