Feeling Useless?


Feeling Useless?
By Doreen Margaret Higgs

It’s better to give than to receive,
thats a saying, and it is true,
for it is hard to be on the receiving end,
when you have served your whole life through.

Having to wait for others
to give you help each day,
when you are no longer able,
can’t help them in any way.

We love our independence,
and we love giving too,
But when our body’s getting old,
there is so little we can do.

We should accept help with a smile,
for however old or ill,
A smile is something we can give,
so we can keep on giving still.


For all those who need care in their daily life, keep smiling.
