Winter Of Our Lives

A friend is the one who is already there when everyone else is saying “Is there anything I can do”
winterofourlives

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! 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 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…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, what  ever you would like to accomplish in your life please do it  NOW!   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  shared together 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! DETERMINE  TO HAVE A GREAT DAY EVERY DAY!
Remember  “It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and  silver.
·        LIVE HAPPY IN  2013!   LASTLY, CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING:  TODAY IS THE  OLDEST YOU’VE EVER BEEN, YET THE YOUNGEST YOU’LL EVER BE—SO, ENJOYING  THIS DAY WHILE IT LASTS. 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!” Send this on to other “Old Friends!” and let them laugh in  AGREEMENT!!!   It’s Not What You Gather, But What You Scatter  That Tells What Kind Of Life You Have Lived!

If A Fat Guy Grabs You


IF A FAT GUY GRABS YOU AND PUTS YOU IN A BAG,

                       and

                 Happy Holidays !
