RE: my appreciation

Yes, yes, yes...what Bonnie said. I learn from the younger generation
(my kids and their friends) just as much as they learn from me. I LOVE
the diversity. Those older than me have SO MUCH to share. Those younger
than me have a totally different perspective on things. My kids and I
just adore older folks. The other day I was driving down the road with
all three of my 15 year old girls and we are just gabbing away and we
all spot this little old man and woman walking slowly down the sidewalk,
holding hands and we all stopped, tilted our heads to the right and
said, "AWWWW, how sweet!" at the very same time. It was so funny. The
wisdom that comes with age needs to be shared and respected by the
younger folks. And the enthusiasm and energy of the younger generation
inspires us older folks!

group of people because folks of different ages, backgrounds and cultures
bring new perspectives into the picture. Chris, we're just glad you're with

Wow... So what does that make me? At 33, I'm not even sure if I 
count as a baby in this group. ;)
