I was startled the other day while watching TV, and a Medicare commercial came on with Danny Glover. I knew it was Danny Glover right away but, boy, is he old now! He really looked like a little old man who definitely needed some Medicare. It was just another reminder to me of how much time has passed and how much I have changed over the years myself. No matter how strong and beautiful we are in our youth, time will break us down, bit-by-bit, until we look like the little old men and women that we are.
It is important to try to leave something behind that will last long after we are gone. A little wisdom, a little strength, a little love. You never know when someone who isn't even born yet will reach back and grab a piece of you.
