We had a party in the lobby of our building. It was a Christmas party and they had a chorus there and we had Christmas caroling and great food. They had all kinds of drinks also. There was an older lady there I would say in her late 80's. I walked over to meet her and I noticed that she was hanging on the desk but I was worried she was ready to fall on the floor. She was starting to slide down. I said can I help you get to a chair you need to sit down. Her neighbor said you have got to go back to your room or I am going to call an ambulance. The old lady said I don't need to go back. They asked for a strong man and Elder Anthony came forward. I took her by the arm Elder Anthony held her up and the neighbor led us to her room. She said she would stay with her for awhile. She could hardly walk. She said I don't know what is wrong maybe I drank to much wine. I think she had for sure. We got her to her room. She had a beautiful room. When we came back we were the heroes for helping her. We got to meet more of our neighbors on our floor. We are kind of famous on our floor because of our holiday treats. It was fun to talk to some of our neighbors. We were able to share with many of them what we were doing here. We have a sweet beautiful 92 year old lady down from us that really likes us. Her name is Lilly. She is such a sharp dresser and very easy person to talk to. She was lived here since 1979. She is divorced and never had any children. She is a triplet. Her brother is dead and her sister is getting dementia. I left so bad for her. She really has no one. We talked about the family last night in class and the blessing that eternal families are. I don't know how long she will be able to stay here. She likes us. A few people made it their job to avoid us but most were very nice. We had an interesting day.
