Our family reunion involves members of all ages — from our little ones to senior citizens. This year I was especially interested in watching the seniors even older than I am!
I noticed that they jumped in to all activities – whether we were dancing or singing or playing bingo or marching down the street in our little parade. Whatever we were doing, our senior seniors and our little children led the way. We have cousins in their 70’s and 80’s, as well as two family members who are legally blind – and guess who was in the middle of all the action! Our senior seniors!
As senior citizens, we simply must remember to approach every event with enthusiasm and to participate in life with joy! I love my older cousins – but even more than loving them, I admire their enthusiasm and willingness to be a part of all our crazy activities.
Oh Lord, let me remain enthusiastic and interested as I age. Allow me to follow in the footsteps of my senior cousins who know how to have fun and live life. Grant me the grace to be a loving and joy-filled guest at all family events.
Amen and Amen!
