I had a bad/good time going to see the Singing Christmas Tree in Tigard. It is a incredible show that has you feeling the Christmas spirit.
However, I have slowed down considerably the last couple of years. I had to have a cane to walk. Of course our seats were at the very top. I struggled big time going up those steps to my seat. People were looking at me with sympathy. Several wanted to help me, but I turned them down.
Of course I had to go to the bathroom twice during the performance! My nephew graciously helped me both times.
Like I said, the performance was incredible, with professional sounding singers. My favorite part was when the children’s choir sang. Their little angelical voices warmed my heart.
Are you having similar problems? Do you struggle to go grocery shopping? Do you need someone else to get things for you?
You certainly are not alone. The number of 65 and older group in our world has grown a great deal. Many more people are getting past their prime.
Here is the most important thing for you to remember:
Having to need help does not make you any less of a person than anyone else.
You breathe the same air. You put your clothes on the same way. You have a lot to contribute to society.
Never let anyone degrade you for your slowness and incapacities. They will be there themselves some day.
God loves you the way your are. Know that you will have a new body when you get to heaven. There will be no pain, and no death.
You are never alone.
You are never forsaken.
You are enver unloved.
And above all…never, ever, give up!
