    • Cutting your elderly neighbors grass.  When I was single and would cut my yard I’d go ahead and do my next door neighbors at the same time because she was elderly.  Plus I’d always take her a bundle of fresh cut gardenias.  Then when I’d see her picking up a few pecans from the ground (two trees in my yard) I’d have my son or myself bag some up and walk them over to her.  I just really loved that womanestatic

    • Ms.Kay, thanks!  I failed to mention that I grew up next door to her and am very good friends with her daughters.  My husband was never home on weekends so I’d drive her to several stores to get her fruits, milk, etc.  Trust me.....she had no business driving!  She did me just as much justice by being there for me as well.estatic

    • After my divorce I continued to do things for on the weekends, ie, cutting grass.  It helped me as well as her.

    • I love that! I believe when we think of other’s more than ourselves we then begin to see our lives change for the better.

    • Shopgirl, that is so true!
      I think it’s so sad that in our Society we throw our Seniors away. I can hardly wait to get to Pensacola every month and see my Grandmother and my Aunt Mary.
      Grandma is 87 and has Dementia, but her face lights up when she talks about her years of teaching and her students.
      Aunt Mary is 92 and remembers things like it were yesterday. She never forgets a face, her memory astounds me.
      I have learned so much about the person that I am, sitting and talking with those 2 living legends.

    • I like to hold the door open for an elderly person. Or let someone go in front of me at the grocery store checkout when they only have a few things, and I have a whole cart full.

    • Take the time to listen, whether it’s to an older person, the neighbor’s kid who wants to tell you this long involved story, or the waitress at the coffee shop who wants to tell you all about the breakup with her boyfriend.  Just listen to someone.

    • I love this topic. I delivered Meals on wheels for 8 years while my kids were small and in school. There are so many small things we can do every day, let some one get into the lane in front of you either at the store or in traffic, Donate things to your local school, day care center or shelter. Please remember to treat you family with Random acts of kindness as well

    • I always smile and always let someone who has one or two items go ahead of me in the grocery store line.

      I hold the door open for anybody, men included!  

      There are so many things that I do without thinking that I really cant think of what they are.  They just come naturally.

      xoxo

    • Wow..I just read some more of the posts here...my husband would much rather speak to elders than anyone else.  He loves to hear about their lives, how the world was and believes they have so much knowledge to give.  He (hubby) has a big heart when it comes to older persons.  

      xoxo

    • Pick up trash in public

      I frequently get the opportunity to pick up trash around our little league ballpark.  It quickly makes a huge difference, and may influence others to pitch in to help if they notice.  (It’s amazing how many people irresponsibly throw trash on the ground.)  We also have a state-wide semi-annual beach trash pick-up event.  It feels good to be part of something that improves our environment.
