On the Bright Side

By Mary Howell


During the days of November the residents of Hemphill Care Center have been thankful for God’s many blessings. We thank God for the care that we receive every day and for our home.

Thanksgiving reminds us of days gone by, and we are thankful for our families and friends that take the time to visit with us. Every day that God gives us to live is truly a blessing.

We have enjoyed several activities during November. We honored our veterans on Veteran’s Day with a decorated cake and punch. 

The Pineywood Pickers entertained us with toe-tapping music while our friends from First United Methodist Church served delicious refreshments. We also enjoyed a Saturday morning with Terry McGraw and Friends who played favorite tunes for us. The Hemphill Garden Club Ladies helped us make door decorations for our rooms.

We express our thanks to our Bingo sponsors: Hemphill Church of Christ, Parkway Baptist Church, April from Texas Home Health, Brother G from Heart to Heart Hospice, and Camille from River City Hospice.

During November we were blessed with worship service and gospel singing with First Baptist Church, Hemphill Church of Christ, Parkway Baptist Church, Fairdale Baptist Church, Community Fellowship Church, Bethel Chapel Baptist Church, Bethany Baptist Church, and Antioch Baptist Church. We also enjoyed our Bible study with Brandi from Harbor Hospice.

The Resident Council has selected John and Janice Napier as the Volunteers of the Month, Lois Claborn as Resident of the Month, and Felisha Parks and Robin Dickerson as Employees of the Month.

We say Happy Birthday to Doris Maddox, Laura Lane, Barbara Briggs, Lavern Mayo, and Marvin Ketchum.

Our sympathy is expressed to the families and friends of Joanna Maida and Lowana Walters.  

We enjoyed decorating the Christmas trees and making our home festive for the upcoming holidays.

We send a cordial invitation to family and friends to join us for the annual Christmas party which will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, December 15th.  Come and join the fun and make the day special for your loved ones.

We are thankful to God for blessing us with days on the bright side!
