Birthdays are joyfully celebrated at our Home. Every month a special table is decorated and placed in the center of our dining room. All the Residents with birthdays that month sit at the ‘birthday table’. A special meal is prepared for everyone!
Often times, family and friends join our birthday Residents’ party. A beautiful birthday cake, along with a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday’, including the 3rd verse of ‘May you have many more, with the Little Sisters of the Poor’!
It’s important to everyone to continue to celebrate our birthdays. The quarantine has challenged us to be creative. Families still come to decorate the windows of their loved ones. Skype and Facetime have provided an opportunity for family and friends to celebrate and be as close as they can be during this time.
We all look forward to the day that we can once again celebrate together, but until then we will do our best to make our birthdays as special as we can.
