Flowers and cookies bring cheer to Daisy Hill on Mother’s Day
Mother’s Day was made a little bit brighter for residents of Daisy Hill Senior Living May 10 when a group of friends from the community delivered 35 vases of flowers and cookies to them.
With a hard freeze scheduled for Sunday morning, Lillie Cox said she cut flowers in her yard and – with a lot of help from her friends – shared them with Daisy Hill’s residents.
The Woodford County Friends chipped in to buy box lunches for the 10 Daisy Hill employees working on Mother’s Day from Jimmy John’s. The Versailles restaurant contributed complimentary cookies for the residents and staff, Cox explained.
Glass vases were purchased for $1 each by the Woodford County Friends. They put flowers in the vases, while socially distanced, on picnic tables at Douglas Park, she added.
A note on each vase of flowers given to Daisy Hill’s residents, “with love,” said, From your Woodford County Friends, Bobbie Benson, Lillie Cox, Becky Dunning, Joyce Craig, Joyce Hedges, Edith Hogg, Sharman and Ted Noe, and Kristi and Dwayne Reed.
One of the friend’s mother lives in a Pikeville nursing home. So cheering up residents of Daisy Hill, with vases of flowers and cookies, was a way for her and some friends to say each of them is special.
“Maybe,” Cox said, “it would cheer them up to have one (of the cookies) on their food tray.”
In an email, Daisy Hill Executive Director Laurie Dorough wrote, “We had a generous act of kindness from a group of thoughtful individuals.
“… This thoughtful visit was very much appreciated by all in our home at Daisy Hill. It was an added way to bring cheer to all on Mother’s Day.”
