    Just a reminder to do it all, while we can...

    WORDS OF WISDOM TO SAY THE LEAST.

    And then it is Winter........

    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. And yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and I wonder where all the years went. I know that I lived them all...
    And 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 gray...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...itís over....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 good 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!!!----
    BE THANKFUL!!!!!


    Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile.

    I've only heard this question once in my life. How did you live your dash? 1953-20// but all these beautiful things you have said remind me of that question. Thanks

    My 90 year old maternal Grandmother likes to say that you had better do what you want to, while you have your health. My husband and I take those words seriously. That is why we just returned from a trip to Las Vegas. We love to visit your city!

    Oh yes, the part between birth and death? Good one... I have been listening to a set of cd's about living in the NOW. The past is gone and the future has not yet arrived. If you live in the past, you will be depressed. If you live in the future, you will be anxious. This is what our pastor's wife keeps saying... Love to all...
