GRANDPARENTS ENJOY ORLANDO TICKET PACKAGES

Sep 19th, 2011 | By Sharon Shaw Elrod MSW EdD | Category: Senior Moments Blog

Grand-parenting is an important part of a senior citizen’s life. And SCJ is always looking out for grandparents. We stumbled on a website that offers some special vacation options that we think our readers will find enticing.

Seniors in the UK, Canada, Germany and Ireland now find it easier than ever to plan that holiday with grandchildren with Orlando Theme Park Tickets available on the Internet. We learned that the packages will soon be offered in France and Brazil, and down the road, in the United States as well. Special tours include the Disney World Resort,Universal Orlando® Resort, SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment, and Orlando Water Parks. In addition, there are packages offered that include two or more of the tours.

Orlando flex tickets offer even more options at exceptionally good prices. The FlexTicket™ includes 14 consecutive days of unlimited



Spending Time You Will Never Regret

Aug 10th, 2011 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

When choosing to spend time with someone in your life’s experience and circle, you are really investing in memories. My Mother is 91 years old. I am an only child. My Father died a number of years ago. It is my reward to live near her and to have occasion to see her with some regularity. We also talk by phone at least once a day. Those times are not particularly dramatic or unusual in their nature and kind, just ordinary opportunities that will eventually become extraordinary treasures. It will never be possible to regret the use of that time. It will never be that I will wish for less time spent, but only more.

The Greatest Thing in the World for Seniors

Apr 29th, 2010 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

It is past our bedtime, which comes quite early. We are two hours behind our normal schedule. Our permanent residence is in the Central Time Zone, while our part time domicile is in the Mountain Time Zone. The phone rings. It is our granddaughter. “Oh, I’m sorry I woke you. You are Sun people.” That last part is correct. But to be awakened by our granddaughter is like having the sun come out and shine right over and around us. She is so (the words are typical for grandparents, but the grandchild is anything but typical) magnificent, wonderful, superb, loving, thoughtful, bright and a delicious part of our lives.

The greatest thing in the world is to have the phone ring and to have it be one of our grandchildren. The greatest thing in the world is to be showered with the attention, even if briefly, by our grandchildren. The greatest thing in the world is to be invited to be in their audience, to hear what is happening in their lives, to repond to a request to attend a concert, in which they/she will be playing,. The greatest thing in the world is to be asked to borrow a hat she will need in some upcoming school production., that we will also attend. That’s the greatest thing in the world.
