Mind you.....I try to be sensitive when posting, because.... the only shoes that I have walked in, are my own shoes and I have no way of knowing what others may have experienced in their life. I am not being judgemental.....just stating the truth as I see it here.
When I first saw the above picture.....my mind was once again taken back to the thoughts that have been playing havoc in my head for several months now. My heart has been heavy for the elderly. That's right....My heart breaks, just thinking of the loneliness that comes with aging.
I think about what is happening in this world today....The younger generation of people are robbing themselves of the real treasures in life..... They fill their lives with all kinds of meaningless activities and they forget how important a simple phone call can be to an aging loved one.
I think about all the people that relentlessly search for genealogy records to learn about the history of their families.
On the other hand, there are those who have the opportunity to learn about their family history.....through grandparents or great grandparents that are still living.....YET, they fail to take the golden opportunities to sit and listen for a spell.
Busy lives seemingly deny these young people the Blessings of obtaining and understanding where they came from and what their families stood for.
The advice that I would give to every young person around today....is to slow down.....take interest in learning about your family history (one day you will wish you had).....AND...remember that old people need you!!
I'm Just preparing for my future...I'm getting older and I certainly don't plan on being left alone!! If Sam and I hear one of our girls cars crank...we'll be climbing in the back seat...(walkers and all) Hoping my kiddos are reading this post. .... lol..
