Lilacs & Greensleeves: The Wooden Bowl
This is a story that just touches my heart when it comes to the love and respect that Care4You feels we all need to extend to the elderly in our lives.
Personally this video may bring tears to my eyes but it also makes me smile at the heart of a child’s innocent and wise observation. We so cherish families from the very young to the very old who surround each other in adoration and appreciation, in loyalty and steadfastness, because we feel that so much is gained in that loving contact between the family as a whole. Whether in our homes, in our places of worship or anywhere that connection is needed, we are reminded through this one video that the precious and amazing gifts all of us receive from our seniors, the history that they have lived through and the wise and memorable advice that they can pass down to all of us, are just too valuable to miss out on and too important to deny them of sharing. The message here seems so clear.This journey that we are all walking together? We need our seniors and they need us. There is so much that they have to give…to us as adults and to the children, grands and great grands alike and never do we ever want our older loved ones to feel invisible in a world where it sometimes gets too busy to even think straight. And what can we give them? Our love and respect, our attention, our patience when they can’t move as fast or as steadily, or talk and think as quickly as they once did. And as this video shows, the children in our lives are watching and they’re listening to how we treat our seniors and how will they respond? I think of those same children who will grow up and when it’s our time and we are the ones who are elderly, maybe they will be caring for us, maybe they will be voting in legislation that pertains to us and to the quality of our care and will we feel safe and will we feel loved? We applaud everyone who reaches out with kindness to all the beautiful ‘Golden-Agers’ who are in our lives right now. And to those who treat them like we all want to be treated, especially when life can sometimes get a little too difficult for them…Care4You personally thanks you!! I call this kind of story, “Videos from the Heart” and I hope this touches your heart as much as it did mine. We can never forget those dear senior souls who are here right now and who deserve to receive all the love and respect that we can give to them. Helping them to feel very much a part of our families will allow them to know that no matter what happens, we will be there for them….forever and a day.
