Carolina girls

Fridays is "ministry day," which is spent volunteering at a nearby nursing home ... this means spending time with the residents, wheeling them to and from Mass, and their Friday afternoon "Happy Hour" and being otherwise helpful to the staff.

I'm delighted to find out just how many Carolinians are there -- one staff member from Sumter, one from North Carolina, a couple of residents also from North Carolina. And two absolutely delightful ladies, one from Camden and one from Bennetsville. The latter is always a fountain of joy, ready to burst forth into song, scooting about in her wheelchair, and giving a helping hand to the staff as she can. Being a double amputee hasn't dampened her spirit.

These Carolina Girls always make me smile.
