Vote for background

I'm wanting to change up my background a bit. I really like the one I've been using, but it's fun to give it some new skin once in a while. I'll try a new on each day for a few days....tell me what you think, or if I should stick with the original.
I'm liking today's so far.....what do you think??

Sr. Teresa

Mom and I went to visit Teresa this weekend. We went on Sat. and stayed the night until yesterday. We stayed at a very nice guest house that was like being at a bed and breakfast. It was right behind where Teresa lives so it made it very convenient to go back and forth.
She wasn't well at all. We didn't get to see her as much as we would have liked, but this made us cherish the time we DID have even more. Today she is moving to St. Scholastica, a nursing home for the nuns, where she can have others take care of her and not worry about her meds and going up and down stairs. She was very accepting of the move, telling me that it is time...she is at peace with her decision.
She has been surrounded by so many wonderful individuals at St. Bens. What amazing women she has as friends....they are her family. We hardly could talk to them without seeing tears in their eyes at some point. It has been hard for them to see their sister sick. A lot of people might think it's sad that she doesn't have a husband or children or grandchildren to visit her and care for her in her illness, but she has been blessed richly. I feel like I am her child and my kids are her grandkids......like DAN is her child and his boys her grandkids....all of US have become her immediate family and the sisters have become her true sisters. She is surrounded by people who love her and I'm sure that makes this easier for her.
