In the physical therapist’s waiting room, an elderly woman leans on her walker, her arthritic hands unable to grasp it securely.

old woman pushes her walker
humming a gospel hymn
Yet her eyes sparkle with life as she smiles and greets others in the room. In her eyes I sense no despair, but only acceptance of her suffering and the ‘joie de vivre’ her Christian faith gives her. When called, still smiling as a saint, she pushes her way through the door. My prayers follow her.
