I appreciate your comments ShortE. You seem to have a healthy balance between what you expect of yourself and what you've been able to achieve, and between what others expect of you and what you can give them. The rest is just the ups and downs of life.
Your advice is good for all here. I work with the elderly and every Christmas I take my daughters with me to visit my clients in their homes or in various placement settings. Only a few generations ago kids were familiar with older adults as families either cared for their own or lived near them. Now it is more common for young people to not have any exposure to frail elderly folks many of whom have treasures to share with anyone interested in listening. Anyway, I hope you have a nice holiday.
