Passing on the Lessons of the Past

As my parents have grown older I have noticed that they are less content with the things that they own. They seem to give more of their material goods away and even sold their house for a smaller place. Now they are looking into the various centers for senior home care in brooklyn ny. At first I was shocked and even angry that they would want to move so far away from the rest of their family but in time I’ve come to understand their intentions even if I might disagree with the reasoning behind them. For quite some time now they have felt as if they were unduly influencing the lives of their family and because of this, they feel that in moving to New York they will be able to make way for their children and their children’s children to make their own decisions. To me, this is not exactly the most impressive of logical deductions.

They have wisdom and experience to offer the rest of us. Becoming successful in their own lives with luck and foresight on their side they have the unique ability to pass on that knowledge to the rest of us and take an active role in helping the family grow stronger. It might be that my own thoughts on this subject are different than how most family’s may conduct their affairs but I feel that success comes from within a family structure that is organized and supportive of one another. If we look to the past to the family’s that came to become America’s nobility so to speak, it was due in part because of members of the family’s doing all that they could to ensure that they would become economically successful, innovative and retain a firm grasp on the power that they were creating for themselves.
