“Today I’m Thankful For.. LIFE!” If there’s one thing I’ve noticed when asking everyone what they’re thankful for, it’s the overwhelming gratitude they have for the small things. When I asked Dan what he was thankful for, he jumped up and enthusiastically said life! I’m right there with ya! We should all be thankful for LIFE!!

Exercise is the key to longevity. Movement makes our residents happy. There was no shortage of happiness during our morning walk when they broke out and started doing the Hokey Pokey! Steve and Kathy led the group and you can just see the fun and giggles they were having. Good job Russ, Mary Jo, Beverly and Barb! Keep on moving!!

“Today I’m Thankful For.. All the people here to talk to!” Lillian is one of our recent neighbors that moved in this past month. I always catch her in our family room talking with the others. So when I asked her what she was thankful for, her answer didn’t surprise me! We’re so happy to have you here as our social butterfly Lillian!
