I ran across a great article that I just had to share with all of you. I'm sure for some of you, it will really hit home. Here goes.
Someone was once asked, " How old would you be if you didn't know how old you were?" What a great question. One mental youngster said it this way:
I have become a little older since I saw you last, and a few changes have come into my life since then. Frankly, I have become quite a frivolous old gal. I am seeing five gentlemen every day.
As soon as I wake up, Will Power helps me get out of bed. Then I go to see John. Then Charlie Horse comes along and when he is here, he takes a lot of my time and attention. When he leaves Arthur Ritis shows up and stays the rest of the day. He doesn't like to stay in one place very long, so he takes me from joint to joint. After such a busy day, I'm really tired and glad to bed with Ben Gay.
What a life!
P.S. The preacher came to call the other day. He said at my age I should be thinking about the hereafter. I told him, "Oh, I do that all the time, Preacher. No matter where I am--in the living room, upstairs, in the kitchen, or down in the basement--I ask myself, "What am I here after?"
We joke about getting old because we don't really think we want to get there, but face it, a long life is a blessing from God. Just remember, each day is one that the Lord has made. Let's celebrate it.
