We would all be well advised to remember that one day we will each be a part of the oldest generation. They say growing old stinks, but let’s face it—the alternative isn’t so desirable either.

We all hope that we won’t find ourselves finishing our days in a nursing home. But the odds are against us, and statistics say that many of us will.

It’s something I think of often; as I’ve seen loved ones go through dementia firsthand. A segment from the nightly news that ran again on the CBS Sunday Morning Show today caught my attention, and I wanted to share it with you. It made me smile and brought tears to my eyes. Take just two minutes to watch—you’ll be glad you did.

What an amazing story.
