More great ideas! My mom used to visit the nursing homes when she was my age.
I listend to Joyce almost every day while I'm working. She cracks me up sometimes! But she is very solid in her teaching. And yes - she is inspiring.
One of my ideas had to do with leaving a legacy to children, grandchildren, and even great-grandchildren. We have a couple at church who bring their daughter, then granddaughters, and now great-granddaughters to church.
Good idea about the cooking, too. Just today I was asking my sister about a recipe my grandma used to make when we visited her in Kentucky. I can still see her mixing up that bread. Good memories.
