"... to grow old beloved"

I've currently got TWO giveaways going on. Either click on the "giveaways" tab above this post or click here for Annie Henrie's art or here for the gift card to Swanson Health Products.

Anyone read "Good Bye Mr. Chips"?
I love this phrase at the end of the book:
"[he] achieved that best reward of a well-spent life ... to grow old beloved"
That's my quest every day!
