Every year we get a little older. Every day we get a little older. Time doesn’t stop, and we are continually getting older. Some look forward to it. Some dread it. For some it is a step closer to death. For others it is a step closer to something new and exciting. For the most part, our thoughts of the future concern ourselves.
Do you ever stop and think that as you age, so to do your parents? And they have a good couple of decades on you. Does it scare you to think that they are getting to that age (or have reached it) where illness becomes more prevalent? Where death seems a little more of a reality?
Now my parents are only in their early 50’s, but it still scares me sometimes that they will eventually die.
