- Smile when we see them
- Make a phone call and talk with them for a little while
- Send a card (insert a picture if possible)
- Send an e-mail (many of our older population have embraced technology, for those that do this is a free way to make a difference)
- Sit by them and say “hello” in church
- Go visit them
There are numerous ways we can volunteer in churches, nursing homes and hospitals.
Let’s all take a little time and make a difference in someone’s day. When you do that it has a ripple effect. The person in receipt of your kindness will pass it along, and it will continue endlessly. Let’s kick all this bad news you see and hear daily and count our many blessings. Being an American is one of the first one that comes to mind.
What are you thankful for? Any more ideas on how to brighten an older persons day?
