On The Bright Side Mary Howell

The residents of Hemphill Care Center are thankful to God for the new year 2013.  We are reminded that every year, we live is a gift from God.


During the month of January, we enjoyed worship services and gospel singing sponsored by Hemphill’s First Baptist Church, Fairdale Baptist, Bethel Chapel Church, Community Fellowship, Parkway Baptist, Antioch Baptist, Hemphill Church of Christ and Bethany Baptist Church.


We enjoyed afternoons of fun and lively music with the Hope Family Clowns of Lake Area Hospice, The Pineywood Pickers and CJ Michaels, the One Man Band.  We say thank you to our friends from Hemphill First Methodist Church for providing refreshments during The Pineywood Pickers concert.


We played bingo with Brother G from heart to Heart Hospice, April from Texas Home Health, Parkway Baptist church and Hemphill Church of Christ.


We were served appropriate treats in celebration of National Pie Day, National Blueberry Pancake Day and the National Corn Chip Day.  We enjoyed listening to Elvis’ love songs and eating peanut butter and banana sandwiches in recognition of Elvis Presley’s birthday.


Congratulations are extended to Barbara Briggs, Resident of the Month, Brother G from Heart to Heart Hospice, Volunteer of the month, and Heather Lucius and Juanita Merchant as Employees of the month.


Residents celebrating birthdays in January are Perkin Thomas, Geneva Iles, Ann Pearce, Darwin Stroud and Stan Bible.


We send our sympathy to the families in the loss of their loved ones, Jewel Bass, Sybil Smith, Joyce Lacoste, Hoy Clark, Donald Tyndell and Ava Anderson.


We welcome family and friends to come for a visit which will give Hemphill Care Center residents a day on the bright side.
