Wednesday:) When You Miss Your Old Friends

6 Aug

“To reminisce with my old friends, a chance to share some memories, and play our songs again.”

~ Rick Nelson


Helene and I spent quite some time the other day, putting together some awesome goodie bags for our artist friends over at Towne Creek Senior Apartments. I’ve been volunteering teaching art there for over a dozen years. They are like family. Helene has been joining me for quite a while, but we haven’t been able to hold our art class since Valentine’s Day. Crazy Covid!

Each bag contained snacks and drinks that we thought they would enjoy, and some coloring pages, crayons, markers and colored pencils to keep their artistic juices flowing. I was even inspired to write a little poem…that’s what I do when I’m feeling nostalgic.

Kelly, the manager, was kind enough to help us load up a shopping cart and said we could deliver the bags to our friends.

The goodie bags and the brief visits were appreciated by all. You never know what a small act of kindness might mean to someone. Many of these senior residents haven’t left the building in months, so a smiling face, (even under a mask) really meant a lot.

It was a good day to share some smiles, love, and goodwill with old friends.
