I sent dozens of girls from a sorority at Baylor University to a nursing home one day to deliver stuffed animals to the ladies and balloons to the men. Later that day, I received a call from the social worker at the nursing home. She said, “Inez, I have to tell you something that happened after the girls left.” She told me that one of the men went to one of the women and said,
“Do you want that animal?”
“Why are you asking?”
“Because if you don’t want it, I do”.
“What do you want it for?”
“I thought I’d put it on my bed.”
“Well, go on, take it!”
The social worker said, “I have been by that man’s room several times this afternoon and each time I pass by I see him sitting on his bed hugging that little stuffed animal.”
