Defining a Lifetime

We talk about a lifetime, yet its definition varies widely. A baby is born, then dies within the first week. A young child acquires cancer and dies at 8 years of age. A teenager is killed in a car wreck. A young man dies on a battlefield. A senior passes away at 100 years of age. So, how do we define a lifetime?

Perhaps, a lifetime isn’t meant to be defined, but rather lived. Whether it be one day or a 100 years, it varies with each. Perhaps, someday, it will all make sense. For now, it is for each one of us to live our lifetime…one day at a time.
