My in-laws take care of her great aunt. She is in her 90’s and has her own special suite at my in-laws house. Daily they take her meals. They are always on her own dishes.
Think about it for a minute. My mother-in-law is a decorator extraordinaire. Her house looks like a museum or a gallery – everything just so. Yet she takes the time to prepare the meals for Aunt Luella on her own dishes. To make her feel like her memories and things are special.
It would be easier to just fix all the meals on one set of dishes, but this taking the time to honor an elder relative is a blessed lesson for me.
