I'm not sure that I am a better person than my parents but I tried to be a better parent. You would think that it wouldn't be that hard to do, being just a little better than your parents, but if everyone did it the world would be a very different place by now.
I"m the oldest person left in my family. My parents are gone. I find it harder to maintain a level of goodness. I get crabby a lot more often that I used to.
How is it for you?
