honoring the small in what we do -

"We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big difference, ignore the small daily differences we can make which, over time, add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee."

Steve's brother, who has Alzheimer's, is in a wonderful new place.  Steve's sister found it and they have a web-site and tons of photos.  It is like a home;  it is a home with six people and a huge yard and he has gained some weight because they all eat together and they take really good care of him, and Steve spoke to him tonight and he was the most coherent he has been in a long time.  It is heart-breaking though, absolutely heart-breaking.  As long as they stay in the past with what they discuss, all is fine, and so they do, and I give thanks for these people who are taking care of Bob.  They seem to really enjoy it, and it is wonderful to know there are people like this, who make the "small daily differences" that so affect the heart and wholeness of this world.
