KIM’S KORNER JANUARY 2019
Here we are again at this time of year where we think about the year to come. It is hard to believe that it 2019. Where is the time going? I remember hearing my grandparents say “Time goes by faster the older that you become.” I didn’t believe that but I am here to attest that it sure feels that way. I don’t know if it is because when you were younger and had small children at home that you were too busy with work, baths, supper and homework that you didn’t notice the time ticking by, but currently as I look at my life now that my kids are grown and on to the new chapter in our lives, I find that time is flying by even more quickly.
I think we need to take the time to slow down and remember our friends, families and maybe pick up a hobby or two. So many seniors are at home alone, some can’t get out this time of year because of the weather, maybe breathing problems, or maybe snow and ice keep them in. We need to be mindful of this and check on our neighbors, friends, or loved ones.
Remember too their sidewalks may need to be cleaned off and salt put down. ShelbyGo riders have to have come to the curb or driveway to be picked up so having a safe walkway is critical. Another side effect of winter is that there is less sun shine and some people may be feeling a little blue at this time. Sometimes just a quick phone call to a neighbor or family member may be all they need to lift their spirits. We would love to see them at the Horizon Center to play cards, Bingo or maybe a Lunch and Learn activitiy. We want to wish you a Happy New Year!!!
