On the seventh day of Christmas Aloha, I crafted holiday decorations for my neighbors.
I've walked my neighborhood more this year than the last seven years combined. From walking my dog to rehab him from surgery to taking nature breaks from pandemic living, I've taken more time to appreciate where I live and who I live with.
In doing so, I've gotten to know my neighbors better and hadn't realized just how many senior citizens lived on my block! 2020 has been an especially scary time for senior citizens. So, I made a point of checking on them.
So, for the seventh day of Christmas Aloha, I crafted holiday bouquets for them. Because they were fake, they didn't have to water them, making them easy to care for and convenient to re-use. By adding a small touch of Christmas to their homes, I just wanted to let them know that someone was thinking of them.
Please consider keeping the elderly in your neighborhood warmer this winter with a warm gesture, too.
*For the 12 days of Christmas Aloha, I'm using the 12 days before Christmas to inspire people to be more loving, kind, and compassionate with themselves and each other.compassionate with themselves and each other. Practicing aloha optimizes your mental health by cultivating a positive mindset and building self-worth, self-esteem, courage, and confidence!
