December is a busy-special time of year, and I have to remember to tell myself, "Slow down and enjoy these moments because life goes by too fast."  As I sit here in my dining room working away on a snow day; my kids are jumping around the house, touching those ornaments and playing with figures in the Christmas

village (the post man did get broken at his knees LOL), this year, instead; I'm going to smile about all of it!  And I want to challenge each one of you to do the same!  Let's all make a promise to live each day with powerful kindness.  

I also want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Holiday Season!  We have a lot to be merry and bright about :)  

Safe travels, be well and I already told Santa everyone has been a very good boy or girl this year :)

Have you noticed a new nurse around here lately? Let us formally introduce you to Angie Dodd. Angie is an RN who works full time at the Bickford in Quincy. She travels here to help out every Thursday.

She describes herself as respectful and organized, with a good sense of humor. Some of her favorites include; fall colors, Italian food, war movies, & Stevie Nicks. 

Angie's proudest accomplishments are; graduating with her Master's Degree, her 2 sons, and her 4 year old granddaughter, Brylee. When asking her what inspires her the most,

Angie replied with, "Definately my mom."

We also learned that Angie can yodel! We're thinking new entertainment for our loved ones? :)

When we asked Angie what her favorite thing about Senior Living is, she said, " I'm definately a die hard nurse-always have been-my favorite thing about Senior Living is the opportunity to know these very special individuals-talking, giving a hug/smile-sharing stories. A sense of humor is definately a must. Some of the residents have had very exciting lives!"
