 What does it feel like to be old?

The other day, a young person asked me: - What did it feel like to be old?
I was very surprised by the question, since I did not consider myself old. When he saw my reaction, he was immediately embarrassed, but I explained that it was an interesting question. And after reflection, I concluded that getting old is a gift.
Sometimes I am surprised at the person who lives in my mirror. But I don't worry about those things for long. I wouldn't trade everything I have for a few less gray hairs and a flat stomach. I don't scold myself for not making the bed, or for eating a few extra "little things." I am within my rights to be a little messy, to be extravagant, and to spend hours staring at my flowers.
I have seen some dear friends leave this world, before they had enjoyed the freedom that comes with growing old.
-Who cares if I choose to read or play on the computer until 4 in the morning and then sleep until who knows what time?
I will dance with me to the rhythm of the 50's and 60's. And if later I want to cry for some lost love...I will!
I'll walk down the beach in a swimsuit that stretches over my plump body and dive into the waves letting myself go, despite the pitying looks of the bikini-wearers. They'll get old too, if they're lucky...
It is true that through the years my heart has ached for the loss of a loved one, for the pain of a child, or for seeing a pet die. But it is suffering that gives us strength and makes us grow. An unbroken heart is sterile and will never know the happiness of being imperfect.
I am proud to have lived long enough for my hair to turn gray and to retain the smile of my youth, before the deep furrows appeared on my face.
Now, to answer the question honestly, I can say: -I like being old, because old age makes me wiser, freer!-.
I know I'm not going to live forever, but while I'm here, I'm going to live by my own laws, those of my heart.
I'm not going to regret what wasn't, nor worry about what will be.
The time that remains, I will simply love life as I did until today, the rest I leave to God.

Thought For Today:: "Yet the land we are to possess is a land of valleys and hills. It is not all flat or downhill. If life were always smooth and level, the boring sameness would weigh us down. We need the valleys and the hills. The hills collect the rain for hundreds of fruitful valleys. And so it is with us! It is the difficulty encountered on the hills that drives us to the throne of grace and brings the showers of blessing."

Time for a joke....

A teenager boy had just passed his driving test and asked his Dad about using the car. His dad said he’d make a deal. “You bring your grades up from a C to a B average, study your Bible, and get your hair cut, then we’ll talk about the car.” The boy thought for a moment and then agreed. After about 6 weeks the father said, “Son you’ve brought up your grades and I’ve seen you studying your Bible, but I’m disappointed you haven’t cut your hair.” The boy said, “ You know Dad, I’ve been thinking about that and I’ve noticed in my Bible studies that Samson had long hair, as did Moses, and John the Baptist, and there’s even strong evidence that Jesus did too.” The Dad replies, “Did you also notice how they walked everywhere?”

Have A Great Day...............

Today's Thoughts:: “We are free to choose our actions, . . . but we are not free to choose the consequences of these actions.”

“Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.”
“Most of us spend too much time on what is urgent and not enough time on what is important.”
“To change ourselves effectively, we first had to change our perceptions.”
“Seek first to understand, then to be understood.”
“Start with the end in mind. ”
“Strength lies in differences, not in similarities”
― Stephen R. Covey

“In the end, it is important to remember that we cannot become what we need to be, by remaining what we are.”
“Channeled correctly and integrated properly, our diversity can be our greatest strength.”
“Only a group of people who share a body of knowledge and continually learn together can stay vital and viable.”
“The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you.”
“We can teach ourselves to see things the way they ARE. Only with vision can we begin to see things the way they CAN
“I don’t come with the wheelchair. The wheelchair comes with me.” Max DePree

Joe Todd Reporting From Glen Arbor Michigan... Traveling With Our Little Guy T@B Travel Trailer..... The Life In Front Of You Is Most Important

Today's Thoughts:: “I believe that there are no memories that are okay to forget.

Every man's memory is his private literature.
Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same.
Memory is a way of holding onto the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose.
Remember, we all stumble, every one of us. That's why it's a comfort to go hand in hand.”

Emily Kimbrough 

Bubba's dad thought that Bubba's mom was getting hard of hearing, but he didn't want to confront her with it, so he asked the doctor what to do. The doctor said, "Get about forty feet away from her, and in a normal voice, ask her something. Then move closer, and ask again, and keep on until she hears you." That evening, his dad was in the den, and asked in a normal voice, "What's for dinner?" He got no response so he move to the living room, about thirty feet away, and asked, "What's for dinner?" Still no response, so he moved into the dining room, and asked, "What's for dinner?" Still no response so he went into the kitchen, and again asked, "What's for dinner?" The wife said, "For the fourth time, I said chicken" LOL Everyone have a great day, be kind to others, and spread some smiles, and laughter.

Well Ok Then

How We Think.. Dream One Size To Big.. Asheville and The Mast Store.. John Dewey.. SamuelnTaylor Coleridge.. Timothy Leary.... “Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition.”


 Today's Thoughts:: The common classification of persons into the dull and the bright is made primarily on the basis of the readiness or facility with which suggestions follow upon the presentation of objects and upon the happening of events. As the metaphor of dull and bright implies, some minds are impervious, or else they absorb passively. Everything presented is lost in a drab monotony that gives nothing back. But others reflect, or give back in varied lights, all that strikes upon them. The dull make no response; the bright flash back the fact with a changed quality. John Dewey CLICK TO READ MORE 


"Advice is like snow - the softer it falls, the longer it dwells upon, and the deeper in sinks into the mind."
"The happiness of life is made up of minute fractions - the little, soon forgotten charities of a kiss or a smile, a kind look or heartfelt compliment."
“Silence does not always mark wisdom.”
“He who is best prepared can best serve his moment of inspiration.”
"Friendship is a sheltering tree."

― Samuel Taylor Coleridge


“Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition.”
“Think for yourself. Question authority.”
“You're only as young as the last time you changed your mind.”
“Courage is the key to creativity and to any relinquishing of ego structure.”
“And a new philosophy emerged called quantum physics, which suggest that the individual’s function is to inform and be informed. You really exist only when you’re in a field sharing and exchanging information. You create the realities you inhabit.”
“Grow with the flow.”
― Timothy Leary


Asheville is a city in western North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains. It’s known for a vibrant arts scene and historic architecture, including the dome-topped Basilica of Saint Lawrence. The vast 19th-century Biltmore estate displays artwork by masters like Renoir. The Downtown Art District is filled with galleries and museums, and in the nearby River Arts District, former factory buildings house artists' studios. ― Google
