Baby its Cold Outside!
Here we are the first few days of the new year. I looked forward to the ending of the old year, it was a bad year, lots of sorrow and sadness and illness in our family and loss. So I began to anticipate the birth of a new year around the beginning of November. The days were getting shorter and it was raining, oh how it rained. It rained relentlessly. Thats when I started dreaming of brighter days, filled with sunshine and birds and even milder temperatures. But noooooooo this year Mother Nature dealt the West Coast a winter punch, snow, cold, below freezing temperatures, icy sidewalks, icy roads, impassable hills, clogged up streets and it just goes on.
I am really happy we are in a new year, but its cold and there are countless homeless people out there and I cannot even imagine living in the cold. I have arthritis in many parts of my body and there are days when I simply cannot go without arthritic medication to help ease my way through the day. It is unthinkable that there are elderly seniors who are homeless and yet as sure as I write this I wonder just how many seniors over the age of 55 are at risk of losing their homes or who live on the street.
There are good agencies out there who can help and I urge you to contact them for yourself or if you know of someone who is at risk.
On a lighter note, I have made a list of the things I want to accomplish this year and now, I am diligently working on a plan to help me accomplish them. Simple things like going to the gym 3 times a week for 45 minutes. Making a grocery plan and list and eating well. Attending church 2 times per month and the biggest of all improving my social life and increasing my friendship circle. The most profound change I hope to make is being able to choose what I want and when I want it. It does not seem too daunting, does it?
Of course, I have my business cannot forget about that and the seniors who need simple little chores and errands run. These to ordinary younger counterparts may not seem like a big deal but they really are when you are housebound, cannot drive or just under the weather. If you know of someone who could use our help in North Vancouver, West Vancouver, or Vancouver area please send them our way. We help one senior at a time so they can continue to Live Well in Their Homes!
