They say when you become older, you revert back to a childlike state. I work at a nursing home and see this is so true. As a nurse, I see the innocence of some residents emerge. Most are so sweet and kind and try to offer you food and candy. Sometime, I feel like I am the mom and they are my children. A few will ask for their mother and father, and this breaks my heart. Some want to go home. I have to explain that this is now their home. They revert back to a childlike state. It is hard not to get attached. I love my residents and I know they love me. I wish I could wave a magic wand and make everything alright. One day, I know God will wipe away all tears from our eyes. He is the only one who can make things right. We have to wait on him. He has a plan and will deliver his perfect plan one day.
