Keep a Senior Citizen in Your Life
I received an email from an old friend who told me that someone I used to know is in a convalescent home and suggested that I go for a visit. Henry is 92 years old. His mind is sharp and so is his memory, but he didn't recognize me at first and he didn't hear me say my name, but since he wasn't doing anything else, he decided to allow me to visit with him. We talked for an hour. I loved hearing the stories of World War 2 and of Henry's philosophy about people and how we should treat one another. Seniors have so much to share with us. Take time to sit with someone who has been on the planet longer than you have. Learn from their lessons.
