I watched the two of them pass by hand in hand. The older one was more dependent on the younger one. They looked like mother and daughter. The daughter was caring for her mother and the mother was holding on tightly. All I could think was how long ago were those roles reversed? There was once a time when the daughter held tightly to her mother’s hand depending completely upon her.
There is a time for everything. As you raise your children remember one day they will be caring for you. As you are caring for your aging parents remember that long ago they cared for you.
