One day we all will get there....

You know time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware of the passing years.  It seems like yesterday that I was young, just married, and embarking on my new life with my mate. Yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and I wonder where all those years went.  

I know that I lived them all.  I have glimpses of how it was back then and of all my hopes and dreams.  But, here it is… the winter of my life, and it catches me by surprise… How did I get here so fast? Where did the years go and where did my youth go?  I remember well seeing older people through the years and thinking that those “older people” were years away from me and that winter was so far off that I could not fathom it or imagine fully what it would be like.   

But, here it is … my friends are retired, they are all richer than me, and they are getting grey … they move slower, and I see an older person in myself now   Some are in better and some worse shape than me… but, I see the great change… Not like the ones that I remember who were young and vibrant … but, like me, their age is beginning to show and we are now those older folks that we used to see and never thought we’d be.

Each day now, I find that just taking a shower is a real target for the day!  And taking a nap is not a treat anymore … it’s mandatory,  Because if I don’t on my own free will, I just fall asleep where I sit.  So on the hour, every hour, take a 30 minute nap.

And now I enter this new season of my life unprepared for all the aches and pains and the loss of strength and ability to go and do things that I wish I had done, but never did. But, at least I know, that although the winter has come, and I’m not sure how long it will last … this I know, that when it’s over on this earth … it’s over. A new adventure will begin.

♪♪ Regrets, I’ve had a few then again ♪♪ too few to mention ♪♪   There are things I wish I hadn’t done… things I should have done, but indeed, there are also many things I’m happy to have done.   It’s all in a lifetime.

So, if you’re not in your winter yet, let me remind you, that it will be here faster than you think.  So, whatever you would like to accomplish in your life, please do it quickly.  Don’t put things off too long.  Life goes by quickly.  So, do what you can TODAY, as you can never be sure whether this is your winter or not!   

You have no promise that you will see all the seasons of your life… so, LIVE FOR TODAY and say all the things that you want your loved ones to remember … and hope that they appreciate and love you for all the things that you have done for them in all the years that have passed.   

“Life” is a GIFT to you.  The way you live your life is your gift to those who come after.   Make it a fantastic one.   

Remember:   “It is Health that is real Wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.”   
 
~Your kids are becoming you … but your grandchildren are perfect!   

~Going out is good … coming home is even better.   
~You forget names… but it’s OK, because other people forgot they even knew you.

~You realize you’re never going to be perfect at everything…. especially golf or music.   

~The things you used to care to do, you no longer care to do, but you really do care that you don’t care to do them anymore.  

~You sleep better on a lounge chair with the TV on, than in bed. It’s called “pre-sleep.”  

~You miss the days when everything worked with just an “ON” and “OFF” switch..   

~You tend to use more 4 letter words like  … “what?” and “when?”

~Now that you can afford expensive jewelry, it’s not safe to wear it anywhere.

~You notice everything they sell in stores is “sleeveless?”  and what used to be freckles are now liver spots.   

~Everybody whispers.   

~You have 3 sizes of clothes in your closet…. 2 of which you will never wear.   

~But “Old” is good in some things: Old Songs, Old movies … and best of all, our dear …OLD FRIENDS!  

Stay well, “OLD FRIEND!”    Send this on to other “Old Friends” and let them smile in agreement.
