This is a profoundly well-written and thoughtful entry you have made. My own father will be 83 this Sunday and he is complaining because he plays golf 4 times a week and dances the other 3 days (or rather nights) a week and "he's starting to feel a bit tired..." You are so right. We must have problems thinking of our own mortality and keep trying to expect the very best from even the most frail among us. If love truly overlooks a multitude of sin, as the Bible says, why can't we simply love our parents until death parts us and be grateful for a life well lived? Excellent post! Thanks for sharing!

Thank you very much for contributing - that sounds a bit lame. I don't know about love overlooking a multitude of sin - that's a challenge we are faced with daily but I believe in awareness of everyone's frailty in one way or another - and the ned for compassion towards all
