Enid’s speech

DSC_0019Today’s lunch was another busy affair with people talking and laughing. Towards the end of the meal Karen (with her jelly and chocolate sauce!) and I joined a half empty table for a chat.

Suddenly Enid stood up saying she wants to make a speech. Turning to face everyone she started talking and the room very quickly turned completely silent with everyone straining to hear every word Enid said. Enid stood up to thank everyone for making her feel at home not just when she arrived but every day since and for making her feel part of such a happy family. She finished saying she has to stop or she would cry. As she did, clapping erupted with several faces with wet eyes and tears.
