Struggling Old Friends
My mother involved me in the Meals on Wheels kitchen from an early age. She was the branch manager back then, and she got me peeling vegetables and doing various chores when I was only fourteen years old. I have always loved to see the happiness and the gratitude on the faces of the Senior Citizens whenever we deliver meals to their homes. Being a Meals on Wheels volunteer has added something very special to my life.
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.
