New and Old

I have a 9 month-old niece and a 94 year-old grandfather.

Despite their ages, they have become very similar. My niece requires my sister's care and attention to thrive. My grandfather requires his children's care and attention to thrive. They both have a very difficult time walking. Both can command the attention of a room with a well-timed smile or laugh. Both have no idea what the future holds in store.

And, we can learn from both:

Relationships are essential: What relationships do you need in your life in order to thrive?

It's not always easy to get from here to there: How do you encourage yourself and others when the road is challenging?

Laughter is powerful: What's one thing that made you laugh today?

Attitude is everything: How can we greet the unknown with curiousity and reflection?
