When grief hits, your world can be turned upside down. One way to respond is to find a cause or purpose to provide meaning for your life and to more basically fill your time. And in fact, there’s plenty of data available to support the notion that having a purpose in life can keep you healthy as you age. For 88-year-old Canadian Bob Rutherford, after his wife passed away, he followed his son’s advice to find something to do, and he combined it with a passion to give back. And thus, Socks By Bob was born. Utilizing the two knitting machines he made, and joined by several other senior friends, Bob has knit and distributed over 11,000 pairs of socks to needy Canadians over the past few years. It’s an inspiring story of how to do good for others, and well for yourself, with one act of caring. So take off your shoes and watch these merry sock makers Here.
