Weekly Photo Challenge: Beneath Your Feet

2 Comments


As you may know I have a weak spot for the elderly, especially those who may be suffering from Alzheimer’s or Dementia. That’s probably why this photo of beautiful bricks laid to honor those who have donated to the building of the facility as well as loved ones touches me most. My favorite takeaway from this post: “So, every day that which is beneath my feet causes me to be grateful for those who saw the need and helped fund this homey setting for those who are facing an end of life illness.”

Can we be ‘brick layers’ of the future for a good cause? I think we can.

My mother continues to be cared for in the local hospice home and every day my feet pass over brick pavers as I arrive and leave. On each brick is the name of a donor or an individual memorialized by loved ones.

So, every day that which is beneath my feet causes me to be grateful for those who saw the need and helped fund this homey setting for those who are facing an end of life illness.

    • Thanks for the love Patti and it’s really my aunt (Mom’s closest sister). One of the hardest things in this life is to see a loved one deteriorate in body, mind and spirit due to Alzheimer’s and this is why I particularly like the thought of embracing memory bricks. Hugs!
