When Giving Becomes Getting
Today I visited Mom for a happy hour and dinner at her senior living center. I was looking forward to it, but I also had a slight bit of smugness, thinking I was giving to these old people by spending time with them. Not a ton of smugness, but a bit of feeling as though I was doing them a favor.
I was wrong.
One of Mom’s friends trained Olympic ice skaters and once lived on a houseboat.
Another of her friends created a student leadership training course used nationwide. She was so accomplished in her field that she trained in Washington, DC with teams affiliated with the White House.
I could go on and on. Upon leaving I’d laughed, learned and got hugs. I left with book recommendation and super good advice about everything from baking to relationship. It was amazing.
Our senior citizens are an underutilized and appreciated resource. Do yourself a favor and make time for these fantastic people. You will get much more than you give.
