There is nothing better than down home cooking. Don’t you agree? It is so much better than the alternative of going out to eat or purchasing store-bought or prepared foods. To me that is simply blasphemy on Thanksgiving or any other holiday for that matter.
It is not as if I have never gone out to eat on a holiday before. I have even had Thanksgiving dinner out in Florida with my paternal grandmother before, but it is not the same as cooking at home and smelling the preparations. There is just something reminiscent in the trouble you go through; it means family!
So, if you are planning to have a senior attend your banquet this year, make certain that you ask if there is something special that they like. Would they like to prepare it or would they be kind enough to loan you their recipe instead? Just this simple task of acting as though you want them included will make for a fantastic holiday for them! They will feel special because they know that their feelings, likes and desires are being considered.
It is the simplest thing to help people feel as if they are important. After all, isn’t that what any of us really wants in this world? You can do so easily by remembering that With Age Comes Respect and then following that advice to a ‘T.’
