On the Bright Side – By Mary Howell – April 24, 2013

Filed under: Mary Howell — Freddie Keel @ 5:58 am


            The residents of Hemphill Care Center have enjoyed the pleasant weather during April while sitting on the new porch which has been added to our home. We would like to express our appreciation to the owners of Hemphill Care Center for giving us a place to enjoy the beauties of nature.

The Resident Council met April 4th and selected the Community Fellowship Church as the Volunteer of the Month; Bill Ener as the Resident of the Month; and Becky Reeves and Joanne Kusterman as Employees of the Month.

We say “thank you” to our bingo sponsors this month which are Hemphill Church of Christ, Brother G from Heart to Heart Hospice, Kelli from East Texas Home Health, Parkway Baptist Church, Carletta from Consolidated Healthcare Services, American Legion Post #197, Camille from River City Hospice, and Blair from Texas Home Health.

We received blessings from worship services and singing by the following churches: Fairdale Baptist Church, Bethel Chapel Baptist Church, Hemphill Church of Christ, Community Fellowship Church, Hemphill First Baptist, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Antioch Missionary Baptist Church, Parkway Baptist Church, Bethany Baptist Church, and the Harvest Assembly of God Church. We also enjoyed an afternoon bible study with Brandi.

On Monday we had our annual Volunteer Appreciation Party to give honor to all that give their time to provide special activities for our pleasure. We also express our appreciation to the many visitors who brighten our day with their presence.

Last Friday the Lake Area Hospice and the Hope Family Clowns sponsored a Hat Style Show. We enjoyed wearing different styles of decorated hats.

The Pineywood Pick’rs gave us a Wednesday afternoon of fun with their toe-tapping music. We had a good time singing favorite tunes with them.

In observance of National Karaoke Week we enjoyed singing with Marti Bible.

We are looking forward to our April birthday party tomorrow which will be hosted by Brandi from Harbor Hospice. The party will honor six of our friends: Burna Lloyd, Oneida Collier, Patsy Hardy, Kathy Melde, Vermell Matthews, and Jack Winn.

We enjoyed planting flowers in our window box with our friends from Hemphill Garden Club. We also painted beautiful butterflies.

We look forward to our Friday afternoon when CJ will entertain us with his One Man Band.

We express our love and sympathy to the family and friends of Margaret Davis.

In honor of Dog Appreciation Month we express our love to Abbey who has brought joy to Hemphill Care Center for the past nine years. Our canine friend has a way of giving us days on the bright side.
