It was a Tuesday evening when everyone was confined to their homes, stuck in a Zoom© bubble. The DeRiemer girls were feeling upset and limited because they could not meet face to face. The energy and morale was low. They needed some way to bring them and the community together. Many ideas were suggested but nothing felt quite right. Until out of the darkness, a bright light that would shine on our pathway emerged; Mrs. McCrea with an astounding idea. “What about making cards for the hospital staff?” she said with an inquisitive tone and hopeful thoughts. The girls glanced at each other’s faces till they came to a decision, “Let’s do it!” said all the girls enthusiastically. The Rainbow Roseville Soldiers marched ahead with the plan to create at least 10 cards each. Days passed, pens were used, fingers were exhausted, and stomachs were empty, but not for nothing. At the end of their journey laid a modest mountain of beautiful homemade cards with the intent of bringing joy to another person’s day. Then, once again out of the darkness, came Mrs. McCrea and her trusty steed to transport our tokens of joy to the hospital staff that work tirelessly to keep us all healthy, to them we thank with all our hearts.
