I went back to my car and got the Christmas bears!

I walked in and took a look at the residents. In my Christmas sack of goodies …also known as the holiday gift bags donated by friends and family, I had tubes of hand lotions and perfumes. These were donated by a lady that use to sell Avon. But, I knew that this group was beyond needing extra things like that. They were sitting, just sitting in their wheelchairs just sort of aimlessly staring at the television or the floor or at nothing at all. I raced out to my car and exchanged the lotions for the beautiful, soft, tied with red ribbons and bows….white, fluffy and cuddly bears. Bears in all sizes for the residents, big and small….and a few young, not up in years. And the room atmosphere changed. It was now a colorful scene and a happy scene and a room filled wih hugs and love. Yes, just a bag of bears made a big impact. Love, Love, Love….didn’t Dionne Warwick sing a pop song in the 1970’s?

WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW IS LOVE, SWEET LOVE…..IT’S THE ONLY THING THAT THERE IS JUST TOO LITTLE OF ……

Yes, a roomful of people today felt love, sweet love because a lady from the Montgomeryville area donated a bag filled with Christmas bears…..and it is still November but the holiday spirit was definitely in the air!
