"How old are you?" " I'm
four and a half!" You're never thirty-six and a half. You're four and a half,
going on five!
into your teens, now they can't hold you back. You jump to the next number, or even a few ahead.
"How old are you?" "I'm gonna be 16!" You could be 13, but hey, you're gonna be 16! And then the greatest day of
your life . . . You become 21. Even the words sound like a
ceremony YOU BECOME 21. Y-E-S-S-S-S!!!
But then you turn 30. Oooohh, what
happened there? Makes you sound like bad milk! She/He TURNED; just like bad milk: we had to throw him out.
There's no fun now, you're just a sour-dumpling. What's wrong? What's changed?
You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, then you're PUSHING 40.
Whoa! Put on the brakes, it's all slipping away. Before you know it, you REACH 50 and your dreams are gone.
But wait!!! There's more: You MAKE it to 60. You didn't think you
So you BECOME 21, TURN 30, PUSH 40, REACH 50 and MAKE it to 60.
And listen to THIS: You've built up so much speed that you HIT 70!
After that it's a day-by-day thing; you
HIT Monday, Wednesday, Saturday!
You get into your 80's and every day is a
complete cycle; you HIT lunch; you TURN 4:30 ; you REACH

HOW TO STAY
1. Throw out nonessential
numbers. This includes
age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay "them."
2. Keep only

"An idle mind is the devil's workshop." And that devil's name is Alzheimer's.
4. Enjoy the simple
5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.
6. The tears
happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only people, that is with us our entire life, is
ourselves and Our
Creator! Be ALIVE while you are alive.
Surround yourself with what you
love, whether it's
family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.
8. Cherish your
health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable,
improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.
9. Don 't take
guilt trips. Take other trips, if you can afford to and like to shop take a trip to the mall, even to the
next county or to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is.
10.Tell the people you love
that you love them at every opportunity.
AND ALWAYS REMEMBER
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we
take, but by the moments that take our breath
We all need to live
life to its fullest each day!
And the SAFEST, the BEST way to do this is by adhering to the
first "four" Words of Holy Writ, often referred to as Holy Bible. Allow those words to be the ones that
govern your daily life's journey.
What 'are' those words? Ahhh! Go look them up!
After reading 'those' four words, keep reading: You will find yourself on a wonderful journey. A
journey of a lifetime!
