Treasures in One’s Home-Look to the Elderly

"A old woman in a house

Is a treasure in a house."

from the Talmud

What a simple Recipe for Happiness, that so many of us no longer know how to cook up in our culture!  In order to achieve Happiness and what I call the Enchanted Self capacity, one must not throw away the valuable ingredients.  Nothing is more valuable that the wisdom, humor, compassion, and appreciation of the small things that one can learn from an older person. 

Do you have a story about what you have learned from a senior?  Please comment and share it.

Thanks,  Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein,
