The winter of my life is here !


 In this picture....Do I wish I could do this at my age??? NOPE,  didn't want to do it when I was young either !


I Found an article that related to "my winter" of life..I'm sharing some of the good thoughts in it and some fun facts to go with it.


I'm talking about the 'winter of life'.  It can catch you unaware of the passing years. It seems like yesterday being young, just embarking on a new life. Maybe marriage, children etc.  Time has a way of moving quickly. 


Here it is, friends are retired and getting grey, they move slower and maybe we see an older person in ourselves now.  Some in better and some in worse shape, but we see the great change.


Now we enter this new season of life unprepared for all the aches and pains and loss of strength and ability go and do things we wish we had done but never did !! But at least we know that though winter has come, and we're not sure how long it will last...this we can know, when it's over on this's over. A new adventure will begin! 


There may be regrets.  There are things we wished we hadn't done, things we should have done, but, there are also many things to be happy we 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!  There is no promise you will see all the seasons of your life.. 

Live for Today and say all the things you want your loved ones to remember and hope they appreciate and love you for all the things you did for them in the years past !!


Life is a GIFT to you from God.  The way you live your life is your gift to those who come after.


Remember: "It is Health that is the real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver".


*Going out is good..coming home is even 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 somethings..especially golf !!


*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 words like.."What"..When".


*Now that you can afford expensive jewelry it's not safe to wear it anywhere.


*You notice everything they sell in the store is "sleeveless?!".


*What used to be freckles are now liver spots.


*Everybody whispers.


*You have 3 sizes of clothes in the closet..2 of which you will never wear.


*But "Old" is good in some things.


Old Songs, Old Movies and best of all, our dear OLD FRIENDS!!


Always remember, "This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it." Psalm 118:24
