September 21st is the “International Day of Peace”. How we wish everyday could be peaceful here on earth. Unfortunately it is not, however as the song says, “Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me”. Those wise words are true as true can be. Peace and kindheartedness must begin within ourselves first and then shared with others. So let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.
The second graders at Bates Elementary School in Dexter, Michigan poured out their hearts and souls to make absolutely beautiful Mother’s Day Cards for our local seniors!
What a wonderful job they did. I delivered 51 Cards to The Northfield Place Nursing Home in Whitmore Lake on May 12th the Friday prior to Mother’s Day. The director there said the staff would give them out on Sunday, Mother’s Day! The residents were so excited to receive them! One resident said, “Are we allowed to keep them”? I said of course, the children made them just for you!
I delivered the remainder of the cards to the Dexter Senior Center. The director there said that they would place them along with their Meals-On-Wheels program so the homebound folks would receive them for Mother’s Day! They were thrilled to receive the cards from the children.
I would like to give a BIG THANK YOU to the children and teachers who made this possible, and to the entire staff at Bates Elementary who assisted in making this event possible! Thank you again for your Kind Acts in Action!
