    @graygodess20:  Buy a gift card, take it to her and say this was left on your front door. Invite her over for Thanksgiving dinner maybe?

    You are so sweet to think of someone else 🙂  I read this and thought… ‘if it weren’t for the dog, that could be MY grandma!’ and it touches me that maybe she would encounter someone who would do something nice for her.  I say send an anon gift card 🙂

    @graygodess20:  sending her a gift card is a great idea! That’s really nice.

    Question though — will she know how to use a gift card? I mean this seriously. Some older folks I know don’t use gift cards because they can’t figure them out. I mean, she’ll probably figure it out… just raising the point in case!

    I think a card with an anonymous gift card would be very sweet. She may not have any family to help her out. :

    @graygodess20:  I’d buy her the gift card. That’s a shame that happened to her and that’s sweet of you to help out.

    I think that would be really kind. Or take a box of non perishable food to her and leave it on her steps.

    @graygodess20:  I’m glad you followed your heart and gave the old lady some money so she can get some groceries.  In cases like this, we all have to ask ourselves, “What would I want someone to do for her if she were MY grandmother?” This could also be ourselves in fifty or sixty years’ time because unless we die young, we will grow to be old and when our time comes, we will want someone to show us the same kindness you showed this poor woman.  Thank you for being compassionate to her!  I don’t know the woman but I think that kindness to senior citizens is something we all have to appreciate for the reasons I just stated and it really does make the world a better place.
