Inspiring joy in small things

STORY SUBMITTED BY Ashleigh

It was my first proper placement as a nursing student, and I was assisting the HCA's in a busy breakfast time. There were a few residents that were in the hallways and not coming into the dining room.

As I was taking some of them to the dining room, one lady was dawdling and I asked if she would be attending breakfast and if she would put on her loveliest shirt. She replied with "but the only lovely thing that I possess is my lovely relationship with God". I replied with "Well you should definitely wear that today, as every day" She was so happy with this reply, she was dressed and sat up to breakfast in a matter of minutes.
