The title of the post is “The Luncheon.”
Several weeks ago me and mommie got an invitation to a volunteer appreciation luncheon hosted by the nursing home we visit. As you can imagine I was very excited and honored to be included in the guest list. Of course the next thing I had to work on was just the right outfit for the afternoon. Me and mommie shopped and found a beautiful pink floral dress that looked just perfect for the occasion. Mommie made me a beautiful hat to match and a lovely new necklace.
The morning of the luncheon I asked mommie to give me a spa treatment I wanted to look like the little Diva I am. Finally we are all dressed and ready to go. I have to admit I was a bit nervous meeting all of the other volunteers.
When we arrived the room was decorated in a beautiful tropical motif and each guest was given a lei as they entered the room. My lei of course was pink. When the guests were all seated Alina the volunteer coordinator gave each guest a beautiful name tag. As Alina presented the name tags she spoke about each person and what they do for the home and it’s residents. She even had a name tag for me and said lovely things about me and my family it brought a tear to my eye and a blush to my cheeks.
At each of our places at the table there was a little treasure chest we were asked to look inside but not tell anyone what it held. I looked and mine was empty wondering if perhaps they had forgotten to put something inside. Then Alina told a story called the box that I want to share with all of you my friends ….
Okay, that’s your teaser. If you want to read the rest (and if you need a nice cry I would definitely say do so) here’s the link to the rest of “The Luncheon.”
