Wake Up Wednesday

Last week's challenge was to write a letter to someone you admire, telling them why you admire them.  How did it go?  I wrote a letter to a lady from church who is always willing to help out with anything.  It made me feel good to point out her amazing qualities that I hadn't taken the time to mention to her before.  I don't know if she even got it yet, but it made me happy to write it.  In fact, I've written a couple more since then.

This week's challenge requires nothing but a little time.  It's simple.  Visit someone elderly.  Maybe you have a sweet elderly neighbor.  Maybe you know a kind, lonely widow.  Maybe you want to go the extra mile and stop by a nursing home.  Ask them who doesn't receive many visitors and drop by that person's room.  That's it.  Here are a couple of words to inspire you.

"Do not forget the hands of the aged; they have touched much of life and have become sensitive and sympathetic."  - Anonymous
"The best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person." - Andy Rooney

Now, how did your letter writing go?  I can't wait to hear about it.  See you tomorrow!
