If you could give one gift to our elders, what would it be?

Posted on: April 7, 2010

I would love to give the gift of my time, to be present, to listen, to love, to show them I care, hold them, play with a puppy with them, and most of all my love. I remember when I was a kid. I would ride my bike to one Grandma or another, I had three that I knew. They lived close, so I could ride my bike any time I wanted to. especially in the summer I spent all my time visiting, listening, loving,helping, and just being there for them.Talking about dreams, challenges, struggles, happenings, and just life…Playing games like Scrabble, Tri-onimos, Dominos, Cribbage, all kinds of card games, watch game shows and soap operas together, I have watched All My Children for 40 years!
There is so much richness in just being there for the elderly, especially now, due to the isolation that some experience because of all the technology now. Working to bridge the gaps between the past and the future by being present.

That’s a beautiful gift, Kim.
