Valentina bought a sign saying,  amongst other things,  ‘Be brave’. She said she needs to be brave to visit the care home. I agree and she is brave.

Sebastiann sat on my llap and carefullydrove the wheelchair.

I live here now. It is not boring and it is not wooded. Some people in the home have ham for tea.

  1. You are brave Andrew ….I see my brothers daily struggle with his emotions ….he got angry with a driver ….he swept everything off his table….what a mess …..he is sad afterwards and asks forgiveness …I tell him do it again , and again ..I will pick it up …….

  2. Dear Andrew, I am so encouraged by your short blog posts. I read all of them. I know that God has a purpose in all of this! If God brings a Bible verse to mind I will share it with you from time to time. Here is the one for today:

    “5 Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
    6 Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track.” (Proverbs 3:5-6 The Message Bible”
