It might sound ridiculous. It might seem impossible. But it’s called universal basic income, and it’s happening as we speak.

Things Left Unsaid
If your Mom is still alive, I hope you take this nudge to tell her all the things that need to be said. My Mother passed away on Christmas Eve. I am one of seven kids and each one of us had a different relationship with her. I think we all knew she loved us.
My Mother had a tough life and yet was the strongest woman I knew. She also gave me the strength I see in myself today. I am the person I’ve become because of all the gifts she has given me.
The Strength She Gave Me Is Amazing:
I have been successful in a tough field for over 26 years but am now a business owner and feel this is what’s been missing in my life. The focus of my business is to help others keep their relationships going through gifting. Study after study show that giving, whether material or emotional, results in long term loyalty, friendships and connections.
Things You Should Think About Saying.
I should have told her how important a role model she was for me, though I do remember not being complimentary to her when I was younger and thinking she should have done everything differently. What I didn’t understand was that she had very little options and choices.
It’s sad that we wait until it is too late to recognize and acknowledge all the things we should have in our youth. We just don’t seem to ‘get it’. Now that she’s gone, I realize how much of her I admired.
Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late
I’ll never be able to say these things to my Mother but if your Mom is still alive, this is your chance. This isn’t just a Mother’s Day thing, but should be for anyone in our lives that we take for granted will be there.
Senior Assisted Living Gifts and Gift Baskets
The perfect gift for a senior citizen is sometimes difficult especially if they have special dietary or medical needs. Individuals in long-term care facilities generally do not need a lot more than the everyday necessities to keep them comfortable.
The Keep it simple rules applies here since many seniors basic needs are taken care of. Also remember that in many instances their rooms and lockers remain unlocked, so you will want something that isn’t of high valuable. A large number of times it may get broken or misplaced. I know of one instance where the senior had Alzheimer and could not remember where her clothes and personal items were and had started finding what she needed in other’s lockers/drawers.
It’s such a nice gesture to bring homemade goodies, but remember in some places this may not be allowed. So ask first especially if they are on a special diet.

Gifts That Keep On Giving and Most Appreciated
Someone living in an assisted living facility may appreciate so much more the things that money can’t buy; those things that won’t cost you anything more than your time. Handwritten notes:
