This blog entry is not about selling you on any product or service. But it is about a story I heard a while back that touched my heart. I hope that it does something for you as well. Afterall, the whole idea about my blog here is to give YOU, the reader, ideas and tips for your tomorrow.
There was an old man who had moved in with his son and his two young daughters because he could no longer take care of himself. The little kids were so happy that grandpa had moved in with them.
Then one day as the family gathered around the dinner table to eat, th eold man kept making a mess of himself with the food as he tried to eat. His son became so frustrated and disgusted with him because of this.
The next time at dinner time, the son decided that would set a separate table for his father to eat by himself. This he did. As the rest of the family ate together at the table, the old man was at a separate table ALL by himself.
One day the man was walking by and noticed his two young daughters playing "house". He noticed they had set two play dinner tables. One with three people. The other with one lonely person. The father asked:"who are the dinner tables for?" The young daughter replied:"This table here is for OUR family. The other table, daddy, is for you when you get old."
The man, almost in tears, walked away. The next night at dinner, he brought his elderly father back to the dinner table to eat with the rest of the family. From that day on the whole family ate together and the man always made sure his father was as comfortable as he could be at the dinner table.
We are never too old to learn. We can all learn something, even from the youngest among us. Have a great day, all.
