Project 365 - Week 49

This week has been a very trying time for my family. We had to put my step-dad into hospice care. My sister and I have always thought of him as a second dad rather than a step-dad. He's been in our lives since we were tiny tots. A lot of my photos for this week are of special moments with family, so I want to keep them to myself for now.

I chose the above photo to share with you because I feel that it's the best photo to represent this week. When he arrived at the hospice center they were so thrilled to have a WWII veteran. They treat their veterans like VIP's. They came into the room, sang to him, and presented him with a certificate thanking him for his service, along with this beautiful afghan that was handmade by one of the local ladies. They even tied red, white, and blue ribbons around the outside posts in the entry way, and United States flags in all the flowerpots so that everyone knew there was a veteran in the building. He felt so special and enjoyed the whole experience! It really lifted his spirits. At the present time he's resting comfortably at home under his new afghan.


  1. I'm sorry to hear about your stepfather. I'll be thinking of you this holiday season.

  2. Hospice is a difficult transition. It sounds like this facility is wonderful though which is so important. I love how they pay tribute to the vets!

  3. So sorry to hear you had such a difficult week. I'm sending thoughts, prayers and hugs for you

  4. So glad your stepdad got a hero's welcome -- but thinking of you at this stressful time.


I LOVE to read your comments!
