Grounded on core values of respect, love, and service to the elderly, the Xin Yue Senior Citizen Service Center of Chongqing, China, promotes social work services for senior citizens and builds harmonious living environment for them.
In the afternoon of March 14, the staff of Xin Yue visited members of pot plant team, exchanging views with them on interests and harvest of pot plantation. The old people showed their pot plants to the staff and introduced the growing process of their plants. As grandpa Qian said, “The first thing I did when I got up each morning is to see the change of my pot grass.” According to his words, we could learn he valued the grass very much. Our staff said, “Thanks to your care and labor, the grass grows so well. A seed sprouts, grows up and withered later. It is a complete process of a plant. It’s also a process that brings us joy and something memorable. ” A pot of grass can bring something green for their life. During the life of a person, we are like the grass. Every period has moments to be cherished and remembered.
Granny Fu values the green sprout. She takes care of it carefully. It grows well. Granny Fu said, “Taking care of the plant brings me joys. Thank you.“
