Caring is an everyday occurrence

Whether or not I am at work, I find people that I can care for. Today at the Stoneburner family reunion, the boys’ great aunts and uncles were present. At mid-80s, they are doing extremely well – or most of them are. It is so great to see that; country living at its finest!

Although I do not get to see these individual every day or even every year (fact is, I barely know most of them), it was very easy for me to go up and have an intimate conversation with them. I feel a kinship with them whether they realized it or not. I guess it is because I truly realize that With Age Comes Respect!

The saddest thing is that many of these individuals may not be at the next reunion. Life only lends us so much time. The best thing was that each direct descendent of the Stoneburners received a family cookbook that included a good deal of family history. This is a real treasure that many families don’t get to receive. My children are extremely lucky to have this piece of history.

They will be able to have this data to take with them and someday to pass on to their children. Perhaps then my concept about age will also be passed on so that each of my children and my children’s children will be able to carry on my legacy.

Caring is an everyday occurrence. It’s something that I want everyone to realize ~ starting with one person at a time.
