Determined to find the pot of gold Josephine spent St. Patrick's Day strolling the halls looking high and low for the fortune. Morning passed with no luck.

The Pen Pal Club has had a busy year. Staying in touch, the old fashioned way, has once again become very popular. This club meets monthly over coffee while we write back to all our volunteers. We send them letters and greeting cards with love and well wishes. We miss them and are looking forward to their return one day. Until then, we will keep looking forward to mail delivery and writing back.
Mayo arrives to work greeting his residence and co-workers with "Never fear Mr. Professional is here!" Mayo is always eager and willing to help others with whatever is asked of him. So when "Mr. Professional" tells us to wear our mask, wear our shield, wash our hands and social distance there is one more piece of advice he adds. . . to STAY POSITIVE and always smile.
The month of January is long and cold and boredom can creep in unless you reside at Liberty Nursing Center of Mansfield.

It truly is beautiful.
Her creativity has spilled over into bingo! This little lady is one of the most creative people in our community. In her younger days she enjoyed oil painting and creating paintings of beautiful scenery. It was no surprise when glancing over to see her using her M&M candy as bingo markers. I just thought, "how sweet is this?" Every day brings something to smile about!
With our color me calm group, one thing we have to do often is keep the pencils sharpened! On sharpening day, this little lady wanted to have just a little fun with the group. The laughter was contagious that morning when our artists came to the sharpening station! Just a little fun goes a long way!
The art of adult coloring has taken our community by storm thanks to this lovely lady. She creates beautiful pages by choosing her colors and blending them together with colored pencils like a true artist that uses brushes and paint. She tells us her art provides two purposes. It gives her a feeling of calmness and a sense of happiness when she shares her work with others. Those of us who are lucky enough to receive one of her pages hang it up right so everyone can enjoy!
