7. Happy Father’s Day (Sunday, June 17, 2018) – Story #7: It’s A Blessing To Look After Your Father.

Please listen to this song:


Somehow after hearing this song, I thought of my father-in-law.

I’m glad we invited him to stay with us and we looked after him till the last day of his life.

If you have the chance to look after an elderly person, consider it a good fortune.

Remember: We, Too, Will Grow Old.

When we look after our parents , we are also setting an example for the next generation.

Someday, when we grow old, they will be inclined to look after us too.

They will feel for us in the same way we felt for our parents.

Look after us like the way we have done our best to help and support our parents.

This is the cycle of life that makes us humans.

Let’s preserve and enhance such a positive legacy.

There’s every reason to be grateful and thankful for the elderly who are living in our midst.

They did their part to build the world around us and we are enjoying the fruits of their labour.

Without them, including our parents or grandparents, we will not be alive.

They looked after us and made it possible for us to live our lives.

When we were young, dependent and vulnerable, many of those elderly persons lent their hands to look after us.

They helped to provide food to us, clothe us, protect us, and look after our every need.

Contributed to developing a conducive environment around us.

Built up our communities, economies, and countries.

And passed on sound philosophies and values to us.

They are an important conduit of practical wisdom to help us live and live well.

We will do well to remember that the way we treat our elderly will shape our communities and our future.

Therefore, let’s help the elderly live a meaningful and fulfilling life.

Do everything possible to help them age with dignity and gracefully.

You’ll be blessed.


I hope this message will find a place in your heart.
