paying it forward

I stepped into walmart for fresh veggies and saw lotion/body wash,pouf gift packs for $2 & $3.I thought of my nursing home pals!They adore getting stuff they can use and like smelling good too.The men were not left out!I spied some candy marked down,I know which ones are diabetic and picked up sugar free and regular truffles,mints and xmas cookies.My Granddaughter is 15 now and was thrilled to go with me to hand out the gift packs we made.I looked over and saw her talking to Madison age 78 and soon had her hand polishing her nails!Maddy is very quiet and Mercedes had her laughing.She smiled over at me and said Dont worry Grammy I got this!
We brought some rolls,deli meat, chips and drinks.They were so excited!My DG was getting hugs and pats on the back.When she went back home she called and said Grammy!I know what I want to do!What? I think I already knew.Be a nursing home helper!I laughed and said You are a natural.She's already going around asking her friends to help gather nursing home residents much needed items like toothpaste,lotion,toothbrushes
,deoderant!!!.Her angry Dad called to accuse me of getting her to do it!!I told him She is loving it and at least she's not being an airhead at 15!She is thinking of others!And of her future.
