“Let us eat some fruits!”
Kids: “No,not now. I am playing. I don’t want to eat anything now.”
Elderly: “No,my stomach is full. I cannot eat so much ! Later I will eat.”
Me: “Okay !”
To Kids: “Will you play that game with me ? How about doing craft this week? What do you want to do ?”
(Takes the fruit from my hand or I put it in their mouth and they start thinking. Waits to finish it and excited to talk.)
To Elderly: “Please tell me more about when you were young. How our family was and what you all did ?”
(Takes the fruit from my hand or I put it in their mouth and they start thinking. Waits to finish and excited to share !)
Oh I love the Kids !
Oh I love the Elderly !
The Joy and Blessing of Being Young, of Interacting with both Age Groups , of Learning from both ! Love it !
