Soon we’ll all be going centennial! No, I’m kidding – the prompts are only half-way there. But I like movies like Bicentennial Man and Up. I mean there are so much aging products out there to make you think that something needs to be fixed or you need to take better care of yourself. But it shouldn’t only be about youth.
Life is a journey that must be lived in the present, at whatever stage of it you are in. I remember sitting down with my grandparents when I was younger and being told stories, and hearing hymns.
They were down to earth people who didn’t seem to let anything bother them. Not a baby crying in a crib, a disobedient child or the world outside their door. They smiled, made friends with everyone and enjoyed eating together, even as they made it into their seventies. Watching them I would often think here is the good life, here is home.
W.P # 50. Write about your grandparents.
