Helping hands of any age
If you are wondering from where this question came, so am I. All I know is I woke up thinking I needed to ask this to a particular person but as it developed in my head, I thought, why not share this, and why not ask myself the same question?
If you have children, you should have been doing this all along. Training and nurturing those children to be good stewards to this world, society, community. For those of us with religious beliefs, the "rest of the story" should be a natural.
But how about training someone to take over your place in this world. Do you have knowledge and wisdom that should be shared, passed on, to be continued? Have you placed that knowledge into a chosen brain, many brains?
Yes, a professional teacher does that everyday, but shouldn't we ALL be teachers? Aren't the lessons we have learned over the years of great value? To answer that, maybe you could pose the question, "what would I do differently, if I were to start over again?".
No one comes to mind? It's too late? Nah, there are always mentoring/nurturing situations out there. Maybe you can help someone read, show interest in them, encourage them to learn.
Maybe, it is not teaching they need, but just company or cheering up. It could cheer you up as well.
