I think it is so wonderful that you stopped by to check on them, and to ask them over for Christmas dinner. A lot of people would not feel comfortable doing such a thing!!! It sounds like you have already helped them, just by being a kind soul. If you want to do something, maybe you could take them a pie or some type of homemade desert for Christmas. I am sure they would appreciate that very much. Or you could maybe just make a little something by hand. Older people seem to like craft items very much. Even the smallest thing would probably really make them very happy. Merry Christmas to you and your kind heart! I wish the best for you this holiday season!

Oh Brandy, you are so thoughtful. You could always make a cake or some cookies and drop them off. I bet they would really enjoy that. If it has been a long time since anyone stopped, I bet the lady was really grateful for your friendship.

Oh I bet she loved it and was very thankful. I also bet she was tickled pink.
