quilts-they age with you, yet never lose their

I am forwarding this to
those on my Senior ‘s email list because it is so well
written.
Please send back. (I did)
It’s neat. Don’t delete this one, you’ll laugh when you see the return
message. I have seen too many dear friends leave
this world, too soon; before they understood the great freedom that comes
with
aging.
the freakin' old people?
Whose business is it, if I
choose to read, or play on the computer, until 4 AM, or sleep until noon?
I will dance with myself to thosewonderful tunes of the 50s, 60s & 70s, and if
I, at the same time, wish to weep over a lost love, I
will.

I will walk the beach, in a
swim suit that is stretched over a bulging body, and will dive into the
waves, with abandon, if I choose to,
despite the pitying glances from
the jet set. They, too, will get
old.

I know I am sometimes
forgetful. But there again, some of life is just as well forgotten. And,
eventually, I remember the important
things.

Sure, over the years,
my heart has been broken. How can your heart not break, when you lose a
loved one, or when a child suffers, or even when somebody’s beloved pet
gets hit by a car? But broken hearts are what give us strength, and
understanding, and compassion. A heart never broken, is pristine, and
sterile, and will never know the joy of being
imperfect.
you mend a broken heart?
I am so blessed to have
lived long enough to have my hair turning gray, and to have my youthful
laughs be forever etched into deep grooves on my face. So many have never
laughed, and so many have died before their hair could turn
silver.

As you get older, it is
easier to be positive. You care less about what other people think.. I
don’t question myself anymore.I’ve even earned the right to be
wrong.

So, to answer your
question, I like being old. It has set me free. I like the person I have
become. I am not going to live forever, but while I am still here, I will not waste time
lamenting what could have been, or worrying about what will be. And
I shall eat dessert every single day (if I feel like
it).

MAY OUR FRIENDSHIP NEVER
COME APART, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT’S STRAIGHT FROM THE
HEART!
