Rocking Chairs At The Hospital
July 1, 2016 12:28am CST
Yesterday , when I went to the hospital for my medical laboratory examination to check again my cholesterol , glucose and the like , I was surprised to see those two rocking chairs at the lobby . Since it was just 7:30 a.m. , there were no patients yet waiting at the lobby . I approached the rocking chairs’ area and saw that they were donated for the elderly by a certain foundation . I took the liberty of sitting and rocking one of it while I was waiting for the secretary of the doctor to arrive so I can get my approved laboratory requests and have it done . I felt so good and relaxed while I was rocking the chair . No wonder , even the not so old people likes sitting in it . In fact , we have a rocking chair at my parents’ house where my mother would usually sit while watching the TV at the receiving room . If she’s in their bedroom , I would also always sit there . And what a pleasant idea by the hospital, to have those two rocking chairs for the elderly at the lobby . Just sharing . . .

That was similar to us also when our daughter was still a kid . We have an old rocking chair and hubby would rock our baby to sleep whenever she has a hard time sleeping because of colds. Really , you can read while rocking the chair ? Good for you . I can't , because somehow it makes me dizzy .

I remember my father's rocking chair when I was very young. He told me that was where he used to lull me to sleep. It was my father who took care of me when I was a new born baby since Mom was having a difficult time after giving birth.

So your father too , had that . The rocking chair can really help a person lull the baby to sleep . At least , it would be easier that way , because one gets to also relax while lulling the baby to sleep. Hubby used to lull our baby to sleep too in our rocking chair , specially when our kid has colds and cannot sleep well .

@SimplyD Yes that is very nice. I like rocking chairs. I use to have one in my room don't remember why i don't have it anymore. Glad you were able to get some rest that early in the morning. Glad the patients can relax a bit if they are nervous before their appointment.
