  7. I was at the post office and as I came out I saw an older lady from church I had not seen in awhile. I stopped and said “hello” and asked how she had been as I had not seen her in awhile. She told me about her back and how it had been hurting and she had just come from the doctor. I told her how sorry I was and if she needed anything to give me a call. We exchanged phone numbers. I have called her daily since to check on her.

  10. I am currently helping a senior friend who was diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer in June. I have been helping her find various resources for financial assistance as well as helping her around her condo. I have been and am ready to care in this mission. Thank you.

  11. I wrote to a senior this week. It was a suggested challenge. I haven’t been very good at keeping up with my Godmother in California, so sending her a letter from Cape Cod was a great way to keep in touch. My Godmother has some health issues now and again and I wanted to recognize how much I care for her. Although she’s lived on the West Coast my entire life and I, on the East, we get together every now and then. It’s been a while, due to health issues, but I still think of her often. I know she loves to receive snail mail. When I was away, I made sure she received a letter and a post card.

  13. An elderly neighbor recently lost his wife & since then he decided to sell his condo & move into Independent living. Well unfortunately he fell his 1st night in his new apartment & ended up in the ER, then the hospital w/fractures in his back. I was our of town when this all occurred so in trying to track him down so I could visit, I learned he had subsequently been transferred to another location (rehab hospital) & finally reached hi. By phone. He sounded so distraught & depressed. Said he only had underwear, shoes & his wallet when he went to ER & now he was trying to get clothes & find his wallet. I assured him I would work to find his wallet & get him some clothes. Ive got hospital security at both physical locations working to track fown who/where/etc. Regarding his wallet & ID. Next I will work to get permission to enter his new place to bring him some clothes. He has no family in this state & I only met his 2 sons when my neighbor’s wife died. I will continue to be a friend & act like Family to help him navigate as I can tell he is so lost w/o his wife & this is A LOT to handle at 1 time at his age.

  16. Selfless Server, although I don’t feel I deserve that label—thought-provoking quiz, though.

  17. Many people respond with a smile or a comment after they were spoken too. A simple ‘Hi’ or ‘Hello’ was all it took.

  20. Went to dmv to get my license renewed. It started to downpour outside and I was sitting near the door. I overheard an older woman talk to one of the girls at the front desk and said “well, I’m going to get a little wet!” I got up and offered her to have my umbrella, but she politely declined. I then told her “if you won’t take the umbrella please let me walk you to your car”. She said no, but I insisted. She laughed and said okay.

    We opened the door and it was a downpour. The street was already covered in an inch of water and the rain was coming down hard. I opened the umbrella and made sure she was protected from the elements. As we were walking, I introduced myself and found out her name was Patricia. :). She was able to make it to her car and get in without being soaked. I said my goodbyes and closed her car door and walked back into DMV.

    The woman at the desk had a bunch of paper towels – I was soaked from head to toe. I thanked her and sat down in my seat and an older woman sitting next to me told me I had a good soul. I told her thank you. I overheard one of the guards talking to the woman at the front desk telling her that he was an EMT but with people today it’s always a risk to help others. He then told a story about someone getting sued for helping someone.

    I have to say, trusted my gut on this one. The woman needed help and I was happy to oblige. All it takes is a moment of kindness in some way to make someone’s day a little brighter or helpful. I chose to help.
