Prayer of Saint Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace: where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy.
O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.

I enjoyed taking care of Mimaw these last 2 years. She was such a joy to take care of. She always talked about her children, grand kids & great grandkids. If she liked you she would be your best friend. She always had me come down to her room to see her even if I wasn't on her floor. Thank you for allowing me the chance to care for her. I loved her so much
