The New Year Comes!

Is is just me…or does each years pass more rapidly than the year before?

I was speaking with a dear friend of mine, the other day, and we agreed that some years are memorable…and some you would rather forget.

Health challenges affect us all, and if you do not think that they will, ever knock on your door….just give yourself some time.

A poor health diagnosis is frightening…and I have cried and been scared and prayed and thanked God for mercy…many times!

Another friend told me that, life is a beautiful gift…and yet when looking back…you are shocked on how much of the gift, that you frittered away!

To live each day with a purposeful plan and in humble gratitude for the paramount opportunity…is a goal of mine!

Those who have never known financial want or deprivation or hunger…have difficulty understanding those who do.

Those who have never encountered, significant, illness, often see those who are ill …in the abstract…and with little understanding of how an illness can, completely, alter your life.

Each day in 2019 will afford, each of us, to do something nice for someone else.

Now you may think that you are much to busy for such a altruistic endeavor…but nothing that you could do…will make you feel better about yourself and the world of suffering humanity…that is part of our family!

I have said, over many years, that we should enjoy every blessing and good fortune that comes our way…as each year…may be the best of our lives!

The element that I notice about successful seniors is that they never stop striving and they never stop…doing!

Mission and purpose and goals, keep us young!

‘The hoary head is a crown of glory if it be found in the way of righteousness.’   Proverbs 16:31    KJV

Trying something different is an energizer in life!  Whether it be travel or writing or diet or dancing!

Aaron got us a juicer for Christmas.  We had one, several years ago, and enjoyed juicing vegetables and fruits…very much!  We are excited about re-traveling the road of juicing!

I wonder if we could step outside our mortality and see ourselves and our lives from a, detached, perspective, if we would be, much as Mr Scrooge was in the Dickens Christmas classic, and be rejuvenated and refreshed and renewed in spirit…to live the life that we were meant to live…and to help Tiny Tim?
