We grow up hearing, over-hearing, and listening to those before us. When we're small children, we laugh at their wisdom because we don't understand and we think their funny.
When we're teenagers, we scoff at them because we think we know it all and they are soooo dumb!
When we become young adults, many times, we resent them. We think it's because they are against us, but in reality it's because it's not easy to walk in truth.
I'm one of them now!
I remember hearing those before me talk about driving at night. How hard it was to see clearly. Not only driving, but in various situations, how sight "is not as clear as it used to be."
I have never paid so much attention to what time it starts getting dark now. I must have a head start on the process of "from daylight to evening." Not only do things seem to disappear in the night but other things appear! Shadows become "something" real. "Who put that in the middle of the road?" "Oh, it was nothing."
Younger drivers seem to drive so differently now. They didn't change, us getting older did! I used to drive "young!" Fear was not a factor.
There's a list of things that look the same any more, as well as people. So many things are changing!
As uncomfortable as it is some days, "Getting Older", I embrace it none the less. Many I know didn't make it.
