Brightening the day for local seniors and myself
A few weeks ago I donated some small rose bouquets to seniors living at a local senior center in Berkeley. I asked to go around to the individual elders who were living there, and hand them the rose bouquets personally. So many of them appreciated the token of beauty. I wish our culture interacted with elders more on a daily basis. It made me feel great to be able to offer such a small gift and brighten up their day. I know that I will do my best to spend more moments thinking of and honoring the elders who live in our communities. It brightened my day too!

Reminds me of when I was little and my grandma (dad’s mom) and I would pick roses out of her yard and then take them to the senior center up B Street. We would ask who didn’t really have family and give them to them.
That’s a nice story Danica. :)
