LIVE HAPPY IN 2013!

CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING:

TODAY IS THE OLDEST YOU'VE EVER BEEN, YET THE YOUNGEST YOU'LL EVER BE SO - ENJOY THIS DAY WHILE IT LASTS.

Ø Your kids are becoming you......but your grandchildren are perfect!

Ø Going out is good...........Coming home is better!

Ø You forget names........But it's OK because other people forgot they even knew you!!!

Ø You realize you're never going to be really good at anything......Especially golf.

Ø 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.

Ø You sleep better on a lounge chair with the TV blaring than in bed. It's called "pre-sleep".

Ø You miss the days when everything worked with just an "ON" and "OFF" Switch.

Ø You tend to use more 4 letter words......."what?"........."when?"

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

Ø You notice everything they sell in stores is "sleeveless"?

Ø What used to be freckles are now liver spots.

Ø Everybody whispers.

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

Ø But Old is good in some things: Old Songs, Old movies, and best of all, OLD FRIENDS!!

Ø Stay well, "OLD FRIEND!" Send this on to other "Old Friends!" and let them Laugh in AGREEMENT!!!

Ø It's Not What You Gather, But What You Scatter That Tells What Kind Of Life You Have Lived.

[TD] Winter

 

I FIRST STARTED READING THIS EMAIL & WAS READING FAST UNTIL I REACHED THE

THIRD SENTENCE. I STOPPED AND STARTED OVER READING SLOWER AND THINKING

ABOUT EVERY WORD.

THIS EMAIL IS VERY THOUGHT PROVOKING.

MAKES YOU STOP AND THINK.

READ SLOWLY!

 

You know. . . Time has a way of moving quickly and catching you

unaware of the passing years. It seems just 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 the 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 and getting grey...they move

slower and I see an older person 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 getting a

shower is a real target for the day! And taking a nap is not a treat

anymore... it's mandatory! Cause if I don't on my own free will... I

just fall asleep where I sit!

 

And so...now I enter into 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 though 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...its over. A new

adventure will begin!

 

Yes, I have regrets. There are things I wish I hadn't done...things I

should have done, but indeed, there are 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 past!!

 

"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.

LIVE IT WELL!

ENJOY TODAY!

DO SOMETHING FUN!

BE HAPPY !

HAVE A GREAT DAY

 

Remember "It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and

silver".
