My grandmother asked me to read her the twenty-third Psalm from the Bible. As I read the words and tears fell from my eyes I thought of her visualizing the stream of calm waters described in the passage. I wouldn’t have had the patience or the strength to read that to her if I had the duty of cleaning her up in the restroom or helping her bathe. Thank God, our family made the difficult decision for her to get the care she needed in a qualified nursing community.
