“Older” people…Ugh??

Watched a car drive in and park with two older people and my first thought was “ugh, old people”.  They’re going to get in the way, move slowly and ask questions.  In other words bother me.  Then I took a step back away from my ugly self and watched them interact with each other in the car.  I couldn’t hear what they were saying but I could see each of them smiling as the other spoke.  At that moment they were happy to be with each other and enjoyed each other’s company.

 After stepping back, watching and reflecting I came to the realization I hope I’ll be able to drive, laugh and enjoy my best friend (my wife) when I’m older. It also made me realize we all don’t get that lucky to be healthy and grow old with our best friends; time is a thief to some of us and so right now is paramount and should be put to good use; cherish loved ones. After all is said and done, LiFE is NOW…
