Number 7 – Took Pound Cake To A Friend

We’re friends with an older couple that we like very much.  He recently spent 19 days in the hospital out of town dealing with a serious health issue.  They made it back home in time for a very quiet Thanksgiving. 
We visited yesterday and brought them a home-made pound cake and a cheery Christmas card.  It wasn’t much, but it seemed to brighten their day a little bit.

  4. I know it would have brightened mine! It's always nice to know someone is thinking of you especially when you're going through a rough spell like that.

  5. I'm sure it brightened their day a lot! They probably appreciated the visit more than the pound cake, though I'm sure the pound cake was delicious!
