The Nursing Home

very nice story worth sharing for!!! it made me cry…just a story but it is full of lesson!!! a very good insight for our daily lives!!! have a nice day everyone!!

The Nursing Home
=================

The 92-year-old petite, well-poised and proud lady,
who is fully dressed each morning by eight o’clock,
with her hair fashionably fixed and makeup perfectly applied
even though she is legally blind, moved to a nursing home today.

Her husband of 70 years recently passed away, making the move
necessary.

After many hours of waiting patiently in the lobby of the
nursing home, she smiled sweetly when told her room was ready.

As she maneuvered her walker to the elevator,
I provided a visual description of her tiny room,
including the eyelet sheets that had been hung on her window.
“I love it,” she stated with the enthusiasm of an eight-year-old
having just been presented with a new puppy.

“Mrs. Jones, you haven’t seen the room… just wait.”
“That doesn’t have anything to do with it,” she replied.
“Happiness is something you decide on ahead of time.
Whether I like my room or not doesn’t depend on how the
furniture is arranged… it’s how I arrange my mind.”

“I’ve already decided to love it.
It’s a decision I make every morning when I wake up.
I have a choice; I can spend the day in bed
recounting the difficulty I have with the parts of my body that
no longer work, or get out of bed and be thankful for the ones
that do.

Each day is a gift and as long as my eyes open,
I’ll focus on the new day
and all the happy memories I’ve stored away
just for this time in my life.”

“Old age is like a bank account.
You withdraw from what you’ve put in.
So, my advice to you would be to deposit a lot of happiness
in the bank account of memories.”

“Thank you for your part in filling my Memory bank.
I am still depositing.”

Remember the five simple rules to be happy:

1. Free your heart from hatred.
2. Free your mind from worries.
3. Live simply.
4. Give more.
5. Expect less.
