Taking care of our elders....

We are preparing to be on vacation next week and I usually stop to see my Mom (88) at least once or twice a week. Since I would not be seeing her next week I called her yesterday and told her we would go out to dinner. She was excited/thrilled to go. She is somewhat restricted at home because she cannot drive anymore and uses a walker. After work we picked her up we had her help us decide where to go...we ended up at Longhorn Steakhouse. We enjoyed Watermelon Margaritas, appetizers and a nice steak/seafood dinner. A good time was had by all. She really appreciated being able to get out of the house. Sometime if your thinking of what should I do today?.....take the time to have a meal with the older person in your life...they really love the company and appreciate getting out. You also can be guaranteed to hear some good "old" stories and to get some "good" advice. Take the time to makes you feel good and leaves them feeling better. :-)
