Senior Column

Anita’s Column ~ November/December 2017 

Lately, I’ve been hooked on something. Don’t laugh, but it’s the newer theme song for Cheerios cereal called “Good Goes Round”.  Now, I really like many of the Cheerios cereal varieties, but the catchy tune is what’s really got my attention the past few months.  It seriously makes me smile.  And, I get the song stuck in my head, too.

While this 60-second song starts out all about how to get the good tasting morsels inside the body to nourish us, it finishes with a much bigger message, including these two lines:

Put in the good and the good will come back to you.
The circle of good makes the whole world better too.

With all the bad that surrounds us today, we sometimes have to work harder to bring the good to the top. It’s always there. It just often gets buried and hard to focus on when we hear, see and feel so much sadness that life is bringing.  And, I hope you all agree that when you do good yourself, it comes back to you in a bigger way than you ever imagined, because you weren’t doing good for you…you were focusing on someone else.  Truly, the team effort circle of good makes the greatest impact when we all do good and keep passing it on.

At Boone County Senior Services, Inc. (BCSSI), you all are in our circle of good.  Not only during the holidays, but 12 months out of the year, you impact our little world by the way you care about others.  Whether you’re volunteering, donating items, giving funds, helping someone into the building, inviting someone to come to a meal, sharing information about resources, talking to us about a need for older adults in the community … you name it … in your own special way, you are enriching the lives of others and helping us meet our mission.  You are making the whole world better, too, starting right here in Boone County!

Thanks to each of you for being a part of our lives, and we sure hope the holiday season is filled with lots of good times for you and your family and friends. You are always welcome to hang out with us at BCSSI in Lebanon, and we do hope you will visit us at our “brand new” office in the Zionsville Town Hall (110 W. Oak Street) soon, too!  We are currently open Wednesdays and Fridays, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. and other days by appt. Watch for more details coming soon about new activities in Zionsville for 2018. 

Stay warm & well. Until Next Time,
