Evening Birthday Party, April 26:
I can’t always assume I know what I am walking into. Margaret was turning 92 and her son was throwing a party for her. He hired me because…well…you know…you never know how many more birthdays one will have past 92. And, a lot of the family was supposed to be there.
When I walked in, it was only Margaret and her nurse. I introduced myself to her and wished her a “Happy Birthday.” She told me that she didn’t want a party and asked her nurse to take her to her room; I never saw her again that evening. Only 5 family/friends came. We think Margaret may have gotten the guest list and called them all to tell them not to come. Her 2 nurses plus their families were there. So…what do you do when life throws you lemons? Of course, we made lemonade!! I’m sorry Margaret wouldn’t participate. Maybe 93 will be better.
