Ever think things will always remain the same?
Or get better?
That as one ages, there will be more answers than questions?

Do you believe in forgiveness?
What does it mean to you?
Does forgiving mean only in your heart?
Is it only in a biblical sense?
Or should it be reflected in your actions too?

As we age, do we have a responsibility to stand up for what we believe in?
Or does it mean we can quit fighting and simply "age gracefully?"
Should we speak up more or less?
Do we share what we've learned over the years...
at the risk of sounding like our parents?

How long do we need to know someone,
before we really know them?
I mean really know them?
Not just their favorite music, food, movie, etc.
But can we anticipate how they'd react in a stressful situation?

Does distance really make the heart grow fonder?
Or does it just make relationships drift apart?
Can one just pick up where they left off?
Can this happen in parent/child relationships too?

Are we who we really present to others?
Do we live by what we preach?
Do we set a good example to others?
As Dr. Randy Paush asked, "Do you choose to be an Eeyore or a Tigger?"

During a child's second age of life,
they are often known for asking "Why?"
The questions may seem a little more complex later in life,
but are the answers?
