The True Meaning Of Life

By Pat A. FlemingPublished: July 2017

The Years have passed by,
In the blink of an eye,
Moments of sadness,
And joy have flown by.

People I loved,
Have come and have gone,
But the world never stopped,
And we all carried on.

Life wasn't easy,
And the struggles were there,
Filled with times that it mattered,
Times I just didn't care.

I stood on my own,
And I still found my way,
Through some nights filled with tears,
And the dawn of new days.

And now with old age,
It's become very clear,
Things I once found important,
Were not why I was here.

And how many things,
That I managed to buy,
Were never what made me,
Feel better inside.

And the worries and fears,
That plagued me each day,
In the end of it all,
Would just fade away.

But how much I reached out,
To others when needed,
Would be the true measure,
Of how I succeeded.

And how much I shared,
Of my soul and my heart,
Would ultimately be,
What set me apart.

And what's really important,
Is my opinion of me,
And whether or not,
I'm the best I can be.

And how much more kindness,
And love I can show,
Before the Lord tells me,
It's my time to go.

There is nothing Drew Barrymore cannot do! Since her days starring in E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and Never Been Kissed, we’ve watched Barrymore come a long way from actress turned entrepreneur. Her Flower home collection for Walmart is the stuff of interior design dreams and now she is back with more stylish ways to improve our lives. This time, Barrymore is working on the eyes.


Since starting Flower Beauty and Flower Home at Walmart, Drew Barrymore has been focused on delivering what she calls “prestige as mass.” She is now expanding that brand mission by taking eyewear to a whole new level. The collection of blue light glasses, available at Walmart, are fashionable and functional.

“I screen, you screen…We all screen too much!” Barrymore says. “At Flower Eyewear, we are setting our sights on minimizing blue light.”


Each of the seven new Flower Eyewear frames has a yellow tint that absorbs the blue light of your screen. There are also extra layers of blue-light-blocking coating in each frame, which can actually lead to reduced fatigue and protection from 60% of these damaging light rays.
