The Power to Heal

With our focus the past week on how to handle a major power outage, we thought it might be nice to shift into lighter gears and focus on the power to heal, or at least help someone, through small gestures.

One of our most prolific volunteers that we've mentioned here before is Mary Moore, who is 93 years young and continues to fill a room with sunshine as she delivers "The Good News" daily to our Hillcrest participants. Mary selects feel-good pieces from newspapers and magazines for discussion. She also spends a lot of her free time handstiching bookmarks that we can then donate in our "healing baskets" given to area hospital patients of all ages.

We'll have more on our baskets in another blog post. For now, we wanted to share some of Mary's latest work and to publicly thank her for all she does for our center and for our community. Never underestimate the power of creative energy!
