Do you know of someone who is either living in an assisted living facility, someone who is facing surgery or other medical procedures, that limit their activities?
I have this great idea to make their convalescence time more enjoyable, I call them, "Baskets of Love".
I have had the privilege to make and give three this month. I am showing two of them, as I forgot to take a photo of #three, which went to a friend who is now living in an assisted Living facility!
Here is the fun part, the recipient can only open "One" gift a day, thus making the anticipation even more fun!
This one went to my dear friend, Frances, who is undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer. She has been quite ill, please pray for her, (she has given me permission to call her name., and ask for prayer.)
Here are a few suggested items for the "Love Baskets", A soft fragrant candle, small packs of Kleenex tissues, hand sanitizers, bath and body gel and cream, a journal to record their thoughts, soft fuzzy socks, a lovely mug, a box of tea, preferably their favorite, a devotional book, a note pad with pen, a small box of chocolates, I made cookies and placed then in a mason jar, I also wrapped a jar of jam, a favorite magazine (Life Beautiful). The list is endless, it is amazing how a little bit of money and time can brings so much Joy!
I found so many items at the Dollar Tree, The Christmas Tree Shop, TJ Max, Marshals,, on sale at some of my favorite retail stores.
