  6. I spent an hour with my brother today who recently had hip surgery! Attended the funeral of my mother’s last living cousin who was nearly 100 years old Saturday and attended a family reunion on my mother’s side yesterday and visited with a relative who can no longer speak because of two recent strokes! Very emotional!! 💞

  7. I love all people n I did few things this week. I took my garden yummies to a depressed gentelman
    I hugged two adorable babies
    N I sang n laughed with my soecal lady I also took her tomatoes
    I feel like all people should be included in the ready to care
    If you think about the big picture
    The babies are someone’s grand children the man I took birthday surprises to will be elderly soon.
    If we all did something daily fir anyone n everyone we would have a lot less lonely n depressed people
    God Bless

  8. Recently I spent the afternoon visiting with an elderly, widowed, gentleman in my neighborhood who periodically stops by to check in with us. We became friends awhile back; he reminds me of my dad, and we typically have long conversations which I know pass some of the boredom he mentions he encounters in his day. After a nice visit, he offered to pick up a Papa Murphys pizza, brought it back to the house, and we cooked it up and ended the afternoon/evening with a dinner we both enjoyed.
    Giving time and attention to someone in need of companionship brings much joy indeed!
    We are all going to walk the path of aging, if we’re lucky; I certainly hope I run into folks spreading kindness and care when I get to that part of my life’s journey!

  9. While on vacation I sent my clients a post card. The week of having a senior drink more I had my clients drink water while I was with them and I also left a cup with water for them to drink after I left. On vacation I have held doors open for seniors.
