I am often called an “old soul,” so perhaps there is a natural connection. Time spent as a child with my grandparents are cherished memories. Because of them, I feel comfortable around people who are in no rush—who will sit and have a long conversation filled with wisdom that comes from experience. It reminds me of how we should all approach life. When the workday feels overwhelming, I know I need to step away and go sit with a senior. It restores my energy and reminds me why I do this important work. The foundation of MorningStar as a mission-driven company provides great confidence for I know that our efforts span well beyond the walls within which we work.
The current generation of seniors have had a tremendous impact on our great nation, serving in multiple wars abroad, its women joining the workforce in numbers never before seen. What I’ve learned most from seniors are manners, respect for all mankind, honor, work ethic and the desire to help others. I love to hear their stories, act as their advocate and just be there to offer assistance, whatever their need.
My maternal grandfather Joseph (PopPop) was the first senior I ever loved. We were two peas in a pod. He treated me like a little princess. Watching both of my parents needing senior care before they passed showed me how vulnerable we all are and how important it is to be surrounded by others who truly care. Seniors teach me how precious time together is and how we must celebrate each other as often as possible.
I’ll always remember my grandma, Rose. Our tight-knit family was built on love and respect for your elders. The weekends were spent reminiscing about past adventures, Honey-do lists around Grandma’s house, and the smell of her famous banana cake and chocolate chip cookies. She shared her wisdom with all the children, inspiring us to live life to the fullest and roll with the changes. This bond was so strong that my wife and I honored gave our daughter the middle name Rose.
