Struggling Old Friends
For many years we saw the little white van driving past our home. Then one day I managed to speak to the driver and I asked her what Meals on Wheels is all about. We were so impressed that we have been sponsoring meals every month ever since – I think it’s been about eleven years now. We marvel at the dedication of the Meals on Wheels volunteers and we are amazed at the extent of the service that is carried out by this charitable organization.
The twilight years. A time that, in an ideal world, should be spent surrounded by loved ones. A time that should be filled with reminiscences, delicious lunches and easy afternoons. A time that – in many people’s lives – is the first they’ve had to put their feet up, after a lifetime of work, stress and trying, against all odds, to be the best they can be.
