It's a long story but I've had been visiting for 2 plus years and now they wanted me to fill out paperwork. I did this, but I still haven't heard back from the activity director. This was 2 months ago. However, my friend and I did get permission to bring in Christmas cards. They were trying to discourage one on one meetings, saying... I'm not really a friend or neighbor or friend, because how I met them outside.... emoticon

Yes, , and dressed up...


I wore my Moms hat. It is a furry hat and it had pom pom fur ball ties. Remember the pictures of adorable kids on Christmas cards with a lovely red coat, with white or black fur on the cuffs and collars??? It's beige.

We'd have to look for the article...however it says to put on a good mascara that is lengthening.

I've used about three brands. One is Maybelline Pumped up Colossal Volume express. I used to use one that had a white formula on one side, and black on the other.

The video showed putting it on with your eye lashes early closed and your looking down. Then as your putting it on, you wave the wand at the same time. In other words, your putting the product on and then giggling the wand both across the lashes and up at the same time.

This loads the product to coat the lashes. Let dry, and do about 4 times. Try and not get it all over the lid and in the corner of the eyes.

If they're like me they are just automatically attracted by bright and colourful things? Flowers, pictures, outfits, etc.

Sue - wow - tell us more about the mascara meetings!

Yes I can imagine those people in the home would be cheered up by your Christmas outfit. So what is your New Year outfit like when you visit them?

I have something a bit interesting about appearance. At least I think so.

I had been visiting some seniors at the home down the street. Usually I just wore whatever I had on. Casual and comfortable.

The times I had pretty Christmas clothes, they loved it. I think the visit seemed more warm and cheerful.

Many of them wear hospital gowns or clothes that have been worn too many times. This is because the kids take things home to wash their limited wardrobe because of space. The rest of their outfits may get lost, damaged, or gone for awhile.

The employees wear a uniform. Sometimes they don't have a name tag, the tags are backward, or some aren't fluent in English.

So what I'm saying, they feel valued from me visiting and trying to look nice.

The funny thing is about 6 months ago, I read a tip online, how to make mascara be more effective. I have had more conversations and witnessing with people, because they mention this. HA

Oh yes - find someone who has lost their health through self neglect, and ask them if it is good to invest in your health! Ill health is painful, expensive and takes so many good things away from you. Having said that, we are to be content in all circumstances etc. But there is no way we should accept poor health if at all possible.

Sorry just found this thread - wish sp would let me have my notifications back - oh well...

I'm thinking looking nice is not a sin in the same way as having money is not a sin? If you have money you can help people. If you don't have money you need to be helped. If you don't look your best it puts people off of Christianity/Christians. If you look good people are more interested in you and you have more opportunities to introduce them to Jesus? It doesn't need to be expensive or time consuming. If you don't look after yourself are you being lazy? Just some thoughts...

What was the other question?

that's right. I been seeing articles on all the media.


So we are going away Sunday for our anniversary. I probably will eat fancy foods, because it's just for this occasion.


I haven't had sweets since the 1st.

I've opened a new topic to spend a day or so to discuss other important points Joyce made in the Introduction.

1. It is wise to invest in your health.

2. Looking nice is not a sin.
