When my 22-year-old grandson Jeremy graduated this weekend from George Washington University, I was so proud of his parents for they paid the tuition, and proud of him because he earned his Business Administration degree with a major in Marketing. He’s got a great analytical mind.
It was a great day. But, I realized as I stood among the family and friends, that I am truly an elder now…with only memories of my own young days. Every day is more precious, each day must not be wasted, but embraced and enjoyed.
