AND THEN IT’S WINTER


AND THEN IT'S WINTER 


AND THEN IT’S WINTER 

THIS  IS VERY THOUGHT PROVOKING.

MAKES YOU STOP AND THINK. READ SLOWLY!

 

AND THEN IT’S 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 soul 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 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 on this earth….it’s 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    LIVE HAPPY THIS YEAR!  LASTLY, 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.

21672167Here’s a wee test to see if winter is upon you. Do you remember that wonderful Sydney Poitier film “To Sir, With Love” with the delectable Judy Geeson and Lulu? If so, you’ll also recall the television spin-offs “Please Sir” and “The Fenn Street Gang” and how you would love to have been at that school and not your own and how you could identify with the characters portrayed in those shows.

If you can recall these times, you are approaching winter as one of the ‘pupils’ in these TV shows is now featuring in adverts on British television for things like mobility scooters, stairlifts, Saga holidays and other aged products!!!!

Just thought you should know………………………..

Remember “It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.”

FURTHER THOUGHTS

• 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 other people forgot they even knew  you!!!
• You realize you’re never going to be really good at anything…. Especially  golf.
• 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 blaring 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?”… ???
• Now that you can afford expensive jewelry, it’s not safe to wear it anywhere.
• 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!!

Stay well, “OLD FRIEND!”  Share this with other “Old Friends!” and let them laugh in AGREEMENT!!!


 

Good Friends are hard to find, harder to leave, and impossible to forget.

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