The Old and the Young




We've been spending a lot of time at my Grandma's recently as she needs care around the clock. It's amazing what young ones do for the old ones, how they renew the spirit and give others the desire to live.
Monkey has been off playing with his friends and cousin, while Bogie has decided my Grandma is his personal servant. She loves it and in the midst of chaos they are creating their own memories.
I once read a quote and I can't find it right now, but it talked about the greatness of society is not about how it treats its' young, but how it treats its' elderly.

What a beautiful photo and what a special time for your boys with their great grandma.

It's true. The elderly are the ignored and forgotten among our society. Which is just so sad, because they have so much wisdom to offer.

Kids do bring out the fun in life because they come just as they are. I'm glad they've gotten to experience their great grandma.

It is a memory that you will treasure, forever. How precious that these boys can give to your Grandma love that she can openly recieve. By the way.....love the new look of the page!
