Happy Birthday tradition creates smiles at Founders Ridge

Kind Regards seriesThe following letter comes from Lynda, who lives at Founders Ridge in Bloomington, Minn. Reading her firsthand experience renews our passion and purpose. It’s our hope that it touches your hearts, too.

Inside her beautiful card, it reads:

all it takes
is a single ray
of sunshine to make
the whole world
seem lighter.
And sometimes that ray of sunshine is revealed in people like all of you.

Lynda writes:
What a surprise! I hope everyone who participates in singing Happy Birthday to us residents truly knows the joy we feel.
I pray all of you will continue to let God shine His light by your actions and HE will shower you with blessings. Thanking God for you all always. Thank you, thank you, thank you … so fun.
Watch staff sing “Happy Birthday” to another Founders Ridge resident:
