When we get older we think differently, don’t we?
This letter was sent to the principal’s office after the school had sponsored a luncheon for the elderly. As a door prize, an elderly lady received a new radio at the luncheon. She was writing to say thank you.
This story is a credit to all humankind, especially if you are familiar with the elderly.
Here is heartfelt letter that Agnes wrote:
Dear Kean Elementary,
God bless you for the beautiful red radio I won at your recent senior citizens luncheon. I am 84 years old and live at the Springer Home for the Aged. All of my family has passed away. I am all alone now and it’s nice to know that someone is thinking of me. God bless you for your kindness to an old forgotten lady. The radio reminds me of one that I had when I was much younger.
My roommate Althea is 95 and has always had her own radio, but before I received one, she would never let me listen to hers, even when she was napping.
The other day her radio fell off the night stand and broke into a lot of pieces. It was just awful and she was in tears.
Her distress over the broken radio touched me and I knew this was God’s way of answering my prayers. She asked if she could listen to mine. I told Althea to kiss my ass.
Thank you for that opportunity.
