I left a message to a friend with cancer and told her she was on my prayer list and I pray for her daily.
I also sent a BD card with well wishes and prayers to another friend with cancer who is also on my prayer list

I know very few seniors that have any social media accounts. Most do not even have a cell phone.

Hi I took my mom to visit a friend in the nursing home the day after signing up & tried to smile/chat with as many residents as possible; it was easy and felt so good. Their smiles were incredibly rewarding!
