TODAY IS THE OLDEST YOU,VE EVER BEEN.
YET THE YOUNGEST YOU,LL EVER BE.
SO ENJOY THIS DAY WHILE IT LASTS.,,,,,,,
,observations on getting older
your kids are becoming you,, and you dont like em but your grandchildren are perfect
going out is good, but coming home is better.
when people say "you look great" they add "for your age"
when you needed the discount, you paid the full price, now you get discounts for everything, pictures, flights, hotels etc.,, but your too tired to use them
you forget names, but its ok because other people forget they even knew you
you,ve more chance of loosing keys, than losing weight
the things you used to care to do, you no longer care to do,,but you really do care, that you dont care to do them anymore !!!
remember when your mother said " wear clean underwear in case you get an accident",,,,now you bring clean underwear, in case you HAVE an accident
you used to say "i hope my kids GET married" , now you say "i hope they STAY married"
you miss the days when everything worked with just an "ON" and "OF" switch :
when google , i pod, and e.mail were unheard of,,,and a mouse was something that made you jump up on the table
you tend to use more four letter words,,,,like "what" and "where"
now that you can afford to wear expensive jewelry,,its not safe to wear them anywhere
you read a hundred pages into a book before you realize youve read it
what used to be called freckles are now "liver spots"
now your husband has retired,,you,d give anything if he could find a job :),,,
BUT,,old is good in some things,,,old songs, old films,old talks, even old jokes lol,,,,,,,, but best of all ,,OLD FRIENDS
FRIENDS DONT LET FRIENDS GO THROUGH TRIALS ALONE
LOVE YOU OLD FRIEND OR YOUNG FRIEND:), WE CAN ALL SMILE IN AGREEMENT!!!!!
AS ITS NOT WHAT YOU GATHER, BUT WHAT YOU SCATTER, THAT TELLS WHAT KIND OF LIFE YOU HAVE LIVED
i love you all ,for all the help advice and friendship you have given me, in such a short time,
i think the word i am trying to say,, but lucky if i can spell it
god bless you all, jimmy xxx
