Life Is (Not) Too Short

Over the weekend my oldest relative, my Great Aunt Ruth, passed away at the milestone age of 101. She outlived her husband, all of her siblings and a large number of those who came after her. She was my grandmother's sister, a proud, tall woman who wore her long silver hair in a thick braid down her back. In this instance, the adage, "Life is too short..." doesn't apply. So the question is, should you, or I or any of us be blessed to see 100+ years will it be a life well-lived, chock-full of contributions to this life that your family and maybe even the world can speak of, or will it be a drudgery that took too long to end?

The choice is yours...
