Life and living can be both beautiful and challenging beyond compare…
Touched by these heartfelt words I came across so much that I just had to share..
“Take me out to the street, son, I still have good legs. If I walk with you, I won’t feel old …
Invite me to your home, son, Sunday morning; to share your good table and feel accompanied …
Talk to me with love, son, don’t challenge me or shake me; we old people are like children we like to be pampered, to smile without discomfort …
Celebrate my birthdays, don’t criticize my follies; I’ll try to be brave, even if bitterness arises …
Don’t push me away from you, don’t talk to me in anger; I still have my mind clear, the memories of the past …
Come visit me at home, my son, I will not ask you for anything; just your presence and contemplate your face …
Don’t leave me sad and alone, don’t put me to bed; the doctors are wrong, the pain is in the soul … ”
Care to give of yourself
Someday you may need it too!
Age is no bar
To create a value
For age is just a number.
Experience of living, matters.
Treat life with care
For life comes a full circle.
Life can at times be lonely
Make time to be present
In the life of those who need you.
Just a bit of your time
A kind word or deed
Will make all the difference.
Your near and dear ones
Need to sense it.
Share the love.
