I continue to have the privilege of experi- encing some truly powerful and wonderful interactions with the residents at local assisted-living, independent, rehab and memory-care facilities. I am humbled and honored to share a touching and heartfelt story with you. I shall never forget the woman who held onto my hand: As I walked through the room, leading our group in prayer and song, I laid my hand on this woman's shoulder as I approached her. She immediately placed both of her hands on top of mine and then she began to weep. She held onto my hand very tightly, she pressed it against her shoulder, she did not want to release me or lose that connection. Choking back my own tears, I took a deep breath and sang even louder and stronger.., as to acknowledge her at that very moment. Taking and making the time to spend with a loved one or even a stranger really does matter.
