Loving & Caring

January 29, 2011

Do you stop and think about our elderly these days?
Loving and caring for them like they did you yesterday.

Do you think you will never grow old and need care?
Some children turn their backs like their elders are not there.

Do you think you are not needed in some way?
Loving and caring doesn’t mean everyday.

Do you think you won’t be left alone someday?
Try being alone, sick or lame in some way.

Do you think you will always be happy not sad?
Life can be turned upside down and make you mad.

Do you think you will always be able to make money?
When you retire sickness can sap that money like honey.

Do you think calling home very little is the thing to do?
How would you feel if no one called you?

Do you think it is fair to exclude the elderly?
One day you will be the elderly in your family.

Do you take the time to show honor and respect?
A little love goes a long way as well as pat on the back.

Do you realize that most elderly have a good mind?
How hard is it to trust them and be kind?

Do you realize that someday you will be in your parent’s shoes?
Loving and caring by your children hopefully comes to you.


Family Bonds are tested the most during the Aging Phase of Life. But balancing the ordinary needs of the Young and of the Old is not a simple task. And yet, in doing so, Caring for the Elderly does give a spiritual dimension to Life.


Be with them this Chinese New Year.

    lovely advert. even better poem. reminded me of the time i was in SG for work and how it haunted me to see all the elderly folks working at the food court collecting all the dirty dishes… felt so sad seeing that. that was one of the thing i didn’t like in SG.
