I have been traveling a lot this month
so I haven't seen my Alz Gals in three weeks!
I arrived around 1:30 pm today (right after lunch)
so most of them were nodding off in the TV room.
As soon as they saw me, they just lit up!
WHAT A TREAT!
Sticking with simple subject matter (flowers)
with images for them to look at,
they were happy and got busy right away.
The aids, and my wonderful assistant Judith, offered
to draw outlines for them to color in.
|This woman is a stickler for staying in the lines.|
And she insists on mixing her own colors.
There are a pair of sisters in the group.
They do everything together.
The older one showed up today without the other one,
and wouldn't start painting.
One of the aids, a wonderful young man from Kenya,
clued me in that she was waiting for her sister.
His gentleness and devotion to these two woman was amazing.
He sat with the two of them the whole time
and coaxed them to do this beautiful work!
|The Older Sister|
|The Younger Sister|
This was done by the sisters' girl friend,(I think she wishes she was a sister)
This lovely woman told me there was no white paint,
so she didn't put them in!
I'm so happy to be back.
