SENIOR NEWS

Sunday, June 21, is Father’s Day! If you are fortunate enough to still have your father with you, be sure to do something special for him. Send him a card, call him on the phone, take time out of your busy schedule to go visit with him, take him out to lunch, or maybe go fishing. Just take the time to show him you love him while you still have the chance. You’ll never regret it.

We hope everyone who attended our 40th annual Senior Day in Cherry Fork last month are enjoying the tote bags and double-sided flashlight/pens we distributed. We wanted to provide you with nice functional gifts. We would like to thank all the wonderful local businesses who generously donate door prizes to us every year in order for each senior who attends to be able to receive a gift. Please remember to thank them when you patronize their business.

Summertime brings back memories of hot afternoons spent down by the creek with a jug of cold ice tea, jumping in to cool off or leaning against a tree with a fishing pole in hand. I doubt if we thought even once about ultraviolet rays, heat indexes or dehydration. It’s a wonder we lived through it! However, these days spending a summer day outside required a little forethought. Hot weather can overwhelm your body and can cause serious harm. Heatstroke can occur if we’re not careful, so here are some suggestions to reduce your risk; wear lightweight, loose-fitting, light-colored clothing; exercise or do any vigorous activity in the cool morning hours; drink plenty of water to keep you hydrated. Forget the alcohol, it’s not good for you; and find out if any medications you are taking could interfere with your body’s ability to regulate your temperature.

The summer can be fun and safe and if you take care of yourself, you’ll enjoy it that much more.

Random Acts of Kindness. This week’s suggestion: Forgive Someone. We all make mistakes. The next time someone wrongs you, forgive them without hesitation. Carrying anger and resentment with you is bad for your health and your relationships. Learn to let it go a d forgive others. Both you and the one you forgave will benefit from this act of kindness. You will be amazed at how much lighter you feel when you forgive someone.

Just a thought: “Forget injuries, never forget kindnesses.” -Aesop
