A Simple Life, a Childlike Faith

A Simple Life, a Childlike Faith

Living History

You know you are old when:

A review of history for the past century is the story of your life.

You look in the mirror and wonder when your mother got so old.

Your grandchildren start having children.

You would rather sit at home for the day rather than go for a walk, go shopping, eat out or sit on the porch.

You can fall asleep any time during the day but you are wide awake at 3:30 in the morning.

The most embarrassing event of your life is your only interesting conversation.

When you can’t watch a complete TV show without a long nap.

When you would rather watch the news instead of the newest sit-com on TV.

When you can not only name the last 15 presidents but you’ve met most of them.

If you fit any of these points, you are old.  I wish I could help you out and give you a word of encouraging, youthful advice.  But, unfortunately, I fit all of these.

    so, how to live as there is no power, no hope, and trying to still something wrong. Pain and grief are difficult to resist.

      What? Perhaps, I don’t understand your comment. The post was intended to be a humorous commentary on my day. Sorry, if you didn’t catch the humor.

Willing to Change
