The Surprise, Carolers, & Shock

The Surprise

This afternoon about 2 p.m., the tenants of Teamster Manor had a surprise come to their doors. We had a tenant who died earlier in the year and today her friends and family gave us a surprise of Christmas meal package. That was the surprise as well as a thank you from the former tenant’s familly and friends. The Christmas package consisted of a white meat turkey rosat, a can of corn and beans, and two cans of fruit cocktail, a ho-ho, two candy canes (cherry flavored), and a box of mashed potatoes. That was our Christmas surprise! WOW!


This evening, we had carolers come and sing us a few songs. It was beautiful! It really made my Christmas spirit pick me up. Also, I knew one of the carolers which made it more special

The Shock

As I was talking to Nellie Mom about the Christmas surprise, she told me that one of the tenants had died in his sleep while he was at a friend’s house. My mouth dropped to the ground practically. A family this Christmas is going to be without a brother, an uncle, a son, and cousin. Just five days before Christmas! It is not fair!!! He was only 37 years old. The whole building is in shock.

    That was nice of them to get you guys that nice dinner. Oooo carolers, we never get carolers in neither places that I live, I’ve seen it on t.v., just not in person.

    I have mixed feelings during this season too. I would rsther be with the family I love and have a good time and I think being with them IS a gift, but then, have the feeling of guilt if I dont get someone something, so often enough I spend the money I have on the people I care about most.

    Hope your week goes well
