Senior Spotlight for Sept. 28, 2011

The thought came to my mind as I sat here working on a different color on the afghan.

I hadn't checked my mind tapestry, or what I call the tapestry of my life.

I looked back on the whole picture as I remember it. So, I decided to check it out.

Yep, there are holes in it.

Due to memory loss, I tried to patch it up by questioning myself, talking to my family and friends. The tapestry is slowly getting more like it was as I find what goes in the dim spots.

Colors are again appearing, mostly blue, some yellow sunshine coming through, a little gray here and there.

But overall, lilac for loyalty, white for strength, gold for hope and blue for trust.

There is yet more to add and hopefully my tapestry will end with the truest color of all, love.

I have birthdays this week for Anthony Zurita, Michelle Morris, Mary Burnett, Dorothy Forshee, Norma Campbell, Marie Greenwald and Iris Balleck.

Get well/speedy recovery to Shirley Murphy, Doloris St. Louis, Storei Weelreyer, Rose Razzano and all of you I have missed this month.

The McDonald's senior breakfast is Wednesday.

The Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4265 senior dinner is scheduled for 5 p.m. Monday. The noon potluck is scheduled for Friday at Sunset Meadows I, 633 Ledford St.

Bingo follows. See you there.
