Why is it that we treasure “vintage” items? We collect them, we wear them and we give them places of honor in our lives. Why can’t we do the same with people? Our seniors have such stories to tell; give yourself the gift of history. Sit down with that older person in your life and “treasure” all that they have to tell you. Is it really important that you have heard the story before? Or is it more important that the story transports them to a time of productivity and value? Ask questions now about their history, your history, embrace the knowledge they possess and give them your time… generously, unselfishly and sincerely. For in the not so distant future, we too will have stories to tell and history to remember.
