As someone not exactly young myself anymore, I am starting to understand why it has gotten harder and harder to figure out just the right thing to get the special people in my life the older they get. Other than another sweater or pajamas or the usual things, what would be really special? A true gift that attaches memory?
When I listen to the stories of older folks, or people who don’t have as much, I hear stories about wishing for that one special thing. And someone going to the ends of the earth, sometimes with a lot of sacrifice, to give them that one special thing. Those are gifts that are remembered forever.
This holiday season, what are you giving the special older people in your life?
