Are You a Mentor?

As practically everyone I know is younger than me, I should be able to do this week’s matchstick suggestion without a problem. “Mentor a younger person.” Whether we like it or not, we are all mentors because we are all role models. How we live and conduct ourselves every day affects those around us. That old excuse, “I’m not hurting anyone but myself,” is wrong. That subject came up one time when my mother and I were talking. She said she was too old to be a role model anymore. I disagreed. I said you will always be my role model. You are showing me how to grow old gracefully and courageously with strong faith in God. And, that’s what she did, right up to the day she died.
