Beatitudes for the Friends of the Aging

In our daily stand-up meeting here in Lodi, our wonderful Chaplain shared a poem with us that I thought was so thoughtful and heartwarming that I wanted to share it with all of you. Enjoy!

Beatitudes for the Friends of the Aging

Blessed are they who understand, my faltering step and palsied hand, blessed are they who know my ears today must strain to catch the things they say, blessed are they who seem to know that my eyes are dim and my wits are slow, blessed are they who looked away, when coffee spilled at the table today, blessed are they with a cheery smile, who stop and chat for a little while, blessed are they who never say, “you’ve told that story twice today”, blessed are they who know the ways to bring back memories of yesterdays, blessed are they that make it known, that I’m loved, respected and not alone, blessed are they who know I’m at loss, to find the strength to carry the Cross, blessed are they who ease the days, on my journey Home in loving ways.

Thanks to our wonderful staff at Divine Rehab and Nursing at Lodi. We appreciate you so very much!
