Even Children Know When A Senior Needs Help

Even Children Know When A Senior Needs Help….

A True Story I Just Had To Share….

Recently, I had the pleasure of attending an event where I was representing Griswold Home Care. I had a table, and my brochures were easily visible. Many people walked by to chat, and then there was one very special young man who stopped to talk to me.

He was 8 years old and had a warm, handsome smile. He looked at the brochure with his big brown eyes and then said to me, “I have an idea.” I had no idea what to expect so I just said, “What’s that?”

He then replied, “My grandmother is very ill, and maybe your company could help her because I know she is dying and my family needs help taking care of her.” Needless to say, I was overwhelmed by his comment. It reminded me that even our children know when something is wrong and help is needed. He obviously had very deep feelings for his grandmother and in his own way he was watching out for her.

My thanks to this wonderful young boy who inspired me that day. My experience brings to mind one of my favorite quotes:

“Sometimes the best wisdom and advice comes from the simple purity of a child. They don’t see the world as complicated as adults do.”
