MY HEART BLEEDS FOR HIM…..his children said he is given them headache.
Met this beautiful couple early this year, I must confess,they are really wonderful people. As lovely as they are there was something that pierce my heart which I like every one to learn from.I know the couple will marvel at how I could still remember such thing if they read this article.This lovely couple walked into the office and after exchange of pleasantries, our conversation started with “Please we need your service for our dad,he is given us headache”.He can go back to his house or elderly home……he must leave our house.
It saddens my heart when I see the way some elderly people are being treated by their family.
First of all,these people may be elderly to anyone,but they are your parents.
They gave birth to you,fed you,went through series of hardship,pain,struggle and sacrificed a lot to raise you.
Now that they have retired and tired they have become “headache”.
Let us have this understanding,
“Aging is a continuous, complex, and dynamic process that begins with birth and ends with death. And unless we die in our early years, each of us will grow old and experience the effects of the aging process”.
Ageing is a process that needs the support of everyone around.When its our turn, imagine our children dumping us somewhere,and say “Elderly Home……he must leave our house”.
Ill health is associated with ageing and the best we can all do is to support them,love them and make them happy.
Even though,our staffs are there to care for your loving aged fathers and mothers,please support your aged parents with not just money,but simple smile,holding there hands,touching them on their shoulders will go a long way.
May God let us grow old and enjoy great love from our children.
