On The Bright Side

By Mary Howell


Although the August temperatures soared near 100 degrees, the residents of Hemphill Care Center enjoyed several cool treats while celebrating the National Homemade Ice Cream Day, the National Watermelon Day, and the National Banana Split Day. 

On August 1st a homemade ice cream contest featured several different flavors of ice cream. The winner of the contest was strawberry cheesecake made by our physical therapy team.

We express our appreciation to our August Bingo sponsors for coming to play Bingo with us and supplying the nice prizes for the winners. Sponsors include: Hemphill Church of Christ, April from Texas Home Health, American Legion Post #197, Parkway Baptist Church, Lorene from Consolidated Health Care, Camille from River City Hospice, Brother G from Heart to Heart Hospice, and Juanita and Melissa.

The Resident Council met August 2nd and named April from Texas Home Health Volunteer of the Month, Myra Courson Resident of the Month, and Employees of the Month are Juanita Merchant and Amber Gottschauld.

We say ‘Happy Birthday’ to Estella Tibbs who was our only resident to have an August birthday.       

On August 15th we enjoyed entertainment by The Pineywood Pickers, and music with Mary Welch and Resse McGraw on the following Monday.

Our hearts were blessed with worship and gospel singing provided by Bethel Chapel Baptist Church, Community Fellowship Church, First Baptist Church, Hemphill Church of Christ, Fairdale Baptist Church, Parkway Baptist Church, Bethany Baptist Church, and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  We also enjoyed Bible study with Brandi.

We say ‘thank you’ to the Ladies Auxiliary Post #10351 for treating us to chips and dip last Tuesday afternoon. 

We look forward to other activities including a ‘thank you’ party for the Med-Aids and a Newcomer Social on Thursday afternoon. We also look forward to a Friday concert by CJ the One Man Band.

We express our sympathy to the families of Doris Bryant, Earl Reed, Jo Ann Kelley, and Harrietta Selby in the loss of their loved ones.  

We have had several guests who have brightened our days by taking the time to visit us. Some of these friends include Dean and Nancy Schober of Dallas, Linda Lout of Houston, and Lester and Kay Fatheree of Granbury.

May God bless and give to all a day on the bright side.
