Growing Old . . .

 Growing Old . . . Gracefully & Gratefully

THE BACK NINE HOLES

"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. 

CONSIDER THIS:
~Your kids are becoming you......but your grandchildren are perfect!
~Going out is good.. Coming home is better!
~You forget names.... But it's OK because some people forgot they even knew you!!!
~You realize you're never going to be really good at anything like golf.
~The things you used to care to do, you aren't as interested in anymore, but you really do care that you aren't as interested.
~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 ... "what?"..."when?"... ???
~You notice everything they sell in stores is "sleeveless"?!!!
~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, OLD FRIENDS!! 

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

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

  2. Hi Marge!

    That is sooooo true!! I just love that I can grow old and still have a sense of humor, so many folks my age just sit down and forget that life is still going on around them!! I have a sweet little neighbor who is 98, takes care of her son, who is 69, and still has a sense of humor - I love her! I hope I leave a legacy of love for my children and grands!

    Hugs,
    Barb
