Good morning everyone. Thank you for joining me to enjoy food in many different ways.
I woke up thinking about an amazing salad I made last weekend. The salad was served at a dinner party I had, to celebrate the elderly I have known for years. I cherish their presence in my life and their experience and knowledge, are invaluable, even priceless. Very often when our dear friends and family members get older, we forget about them, and we lost interest in them. Rather, this should be the opportunity we take to give them back a measure of what they have given us. We can give them what they need the most: our time, consideration, and our physical and emotional strength . They are special and deserve to be loved and cared for, genuinely.
So, I do my part by taking time to care for the needs of the elderly I’m blessed to have around me. I try to have a brunch, dinner, or picnic for them once a month. Also, I make myself available to each one, whenever they need something. I encourage them to call me for anything, even just to talk and I call them as often as I can, to check in. I encourage everyone to take care of those advanced in age, remember what they did for you when they had the strength. Do what you can. Try to provide their favorite meal, as often as you can, that’s a great start.
