Proof You’re Never Too Old For Lego’s

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.

So it’s probably been a minute since you’ve thought about your Lego days. Disney, Star Wars, and Lego are joining forces to release a holiday special this November, and we can’t wait! Lego Star Wars Holiday Special, which will premiere on Disney+ in November, will directly follow the events of The Rise of Skywalker. We’ll get to see Lego versions of Finn, Chewie, and Rey in the Star Wars Holiday Special! According to a press release, the special “reunites Rey, Finn, Poe, Chewie, Rose and the droids for a joyous feast on Life Day, a holiday first introduced in the 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special” and features Rey going on a new adventure with BB-8 to prepare for the holiday and gain a deeper understanding of the Force.


“At a mysterious Jedi Temple, she is hurled into a cross-timeline adventure through beloved moments in Star Wars cinematic history, coming into contact with Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Yoda, Obi-Wan and other iconic heroes and villains from all nine Skywalker saga films,” the release reads. “But will she make it back in time for the Life Day feast and learn the true meaning of holiday spirit?” We’re totally pumped for the special as we get closer to its Disney+ premiere on Nov. 17.
