Make a Senior’s Day Today

Finished this kind act? Log it!

Today’s mission: Reach out to an older adult to check in with them, share a meal, express your love and concern, help them with a task – or perform any random act of kindness of your choice to make their day. Your gesture will surprise and delight the recipient – and let them know they’re cared about. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Show up with rakes and clean up the front yard
  • Call when you’re at the grocery store and ask if you can pick something up for them
  • Drop a few blooming flowerpots on the doorstep
  • Show up unexpectedly to take their car for service or a wash and detail
  • Buy coffee for a senior behind you in line

I got my mom and I cute matching pink tee shirts for Mothers Day …unfortunately I wasn’t able to see her in person so gifting them will have to wait ….so I had a balloon sent to her instead so she would know I was thinking of her …and when I see her soon I will prepare her favorite meal …tuna and pasta : )

I was outside doing some yardwork in the front yard. There are two huge trees in my front yard and many people admire them while walking by. I noticed this older woman bending down picking something up and I asked her if she needed help. So I helped her pick up some pinecones, which she likes, and put them in a little bag for her. I told her anytime she’d like more I would deliver them to her.

We are in different states so I cannot show up at her home. She has been very down lately with many family issues. I call her and check on her and try to encourage her to take care of herself. She prays for me in return. We love our friendship.

Went to Aldi and was returning my cart. Asked a couple of people and they said no. I didn’t want the quarter back for the cart. Then I saw her. A woman with both legs amputated in a wheel chair holding up a quarter. People without carts passed by her. No one acknowledged her. We met eyes. No words. I pointed to my cart and she nodded yes. She offered me her quarter and I softly said no. I told her I would take the cart inside for her. I did and parked it to give her and her chair space to get in. Had I not been riding with someone else, I would have become her personal shopper.

My heart hurt and smiled at the same time. Here she was independently shopping. I don’t know how far she traveled. I remember seeing her come down the sidewalk but I thought someone was with her. My heart was filled with respect for this stranger.

But my heart ached too for those able bodied people who are so ready to say what they can’t do because they can’t walk, don’t have a car, don’t want to use public transportation. All those dumb and ungrateful excuses for doing nothing. I got angry at myself for I have used I can’t as excuses before. I made a promise right there in that parking lot I will never use those words again as excuses to do nothing.

I told God that and included this woman, as well as thanking her for making me see how blessed I am and how inspirational she is. I just hate I didn’t get her name. But, I will never forget her face.
