"I feel there is an emptiness in me. A kind of uneasiness feeling. Is this a kind of loneliness?" -88 year old woman-

Today Iwas sitting and eating my lunch with four elderly individuals. One of them is 90 year old, one celebrated her 91 birthday yesterday. The other one will celebrate her 91 birthday next week. The youngest among them was 86 year old.
I ask the person who celebrated her 91 year old birthday, "what are your words of wisdom for me?" She replied, "Be gentle and caring to others." I said thank you to her. I then asked the other who will be celebrating her 91 birthday next week. She said, "Share your knowledge with others and give the best you can in your work."
I am thankful to these two women you gave me this inspiring words!
