Have You Remained The Same?
When my sons were young, we had an "adopted grandmother" who we referred to as "Grand Becky."
While older, she was always very young at heart!!!! I'll never forget her telling me that she looks in the mirror and wonders whose old body she is in!
I couldn't help to be reminded of that conversation when I read the following ...
I asked an elderly man once what it was like to be old and to know the majority of his life was behind him. He told me that he has been the same age his entire life. He said the voice inside of his head had never aged. He has always just been the same boy. His mother's son. He had always wondered when he would grow up and be an old man. He said he watched his body age and his faculties dull but the person he is inside never got tired. Never aged. Never changed. Our spirits are eternal. Our souls are forever. The next time you encounter an elderly person, look at them and know they are still a child, just as you are still a child and children will always need love, attention and purpose. - Author unknown
