Ruby Tuesday Outfits

on the last week we spent in my beloved manitoba in brandon, bernie and i stopped by a senior home to visit this little lady.
three weeks earlier we had met her son at the turtle crossing campsite and when we got to talking, he told us all about his mom who had to leave her own home because she had come down with alzheimer's....well i have always had a love for elderly people, so i got the little lady's address and told the son we would go and visit her on our return from calgary...
she was the sweetest little thing and agreed when i asked her if bernie could take her picture.."oh yes" she said "but i want YOU to be in the picture too!"
when i looked at this photo of this happy lady, i thought of this verse,
Isaiah 46:4
"And even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you."

when i visited the teach's blog and saw the picture that she had posted of a really beautiful french girl wearing the right colour for a ruby tuesday, i decided to put this picture in here...i guess we both have different shades of red on and the curtain is splashed with pink, i guess this will do for my ruby tuesday post!
thanks for the idea mary t. our beloved teach!....
you can take a peek at the photo mary took at her blogsite..

happy ruby terry

I hope if I am ever in need of cheering up, God sends you to come visit me! You are so kind and thoughtful and I just love your sweet, compassionate heart! MUAH!

Hi Terry ~~ Isn't it just wonderful when you can make one of those little old ladies (LOL's) so happy! They might not remember anything about it tomorrow but for the time you are visiting it really has given them joy!
Did you figure out that Adi likes to visit with the Alzheimer's residents also? We have had to stop for a bit because Adi could only walk on three legs. The vet said arthritis but now she is over it. Huh!

I read your last week's RT also. I could comment on every picture and your clever and lovely little stories. Sir Galahad was quite a cat. I can just see him calling from the snowdrift. And eating the first tastes of the ice cream too!

I hope you are doing better and better. I see you are able to post more now.

Dearest Terry,
It's Friday 11p.m. in Norway, and I came over to congratulate my prayer child Dad Golden with his birthday.
Please, send him my warmest wishes for the day and the future.
He is here in my thoughts and in my prayers, and is so very dear to me.

I have my cousin visiting for a week, while my aunt Gerd is in hospital. Today we are also haing Gunnar's BiL out for an art gallery excursion, so I doubt I will be back on the Internet before tomorrow.
Be blessed and strengthened, all of you. May this day become special and memorable to all of us.
