Speaking Of Generations

A couple posts back I wrote about young people and the fun evening they provided for some of us seniors. This week I was involved in more generational interaction.

A gal pal of mine who is same age I am remembered an older friend mentioning at my birthday party in February that she would like to go shopping for clothes. Her family members are so busy they aren't able to take that much time for a half day shopping trip. She spoke wistfully of how she pictured it being fun to see the new styles and shops and that it had been a very long time since she wanted new clothes.

So the friend my age told her she would take her shopping sometime. And we did.

All it takes to change a life is a generosity of spirit, which you obviously have.

Shopping for new clothes.... Wow. I just recently did it (shopping for clothes i mean) and it IS a wonderful experience.

I stopped myself from buying clothes previously because i don't want to waste my abundant clothes. I wore the same clothes for years!

That's awesome. I know people mean well, but too many times they say they're going to do something, but never get around to it. I am not at all surprised that you say what you mean and mean what you say...
