*Pages with a * mean

they are either new

or have been chaged in some way*

 

 

 

This site isn’t about waistlines or hairlines, it’s

about lifelines.

It’s about reconnecting with our friends from some of the best years of our lives- It's about caring for our classmates and their families! 

 

THEN IT IS WINTER

I FIRST STARTED READING THIS EMAIL & WAS READING FAST UNTIL I REACHED THE THIRD SENTENCE.  I STOPPED AND STARTED OVER, READING SLOWER AND THINKING ABOUT EVERY WORD AND

THEN IT IS WINTER You know. . . Time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware of the passing years. 

It seems just yesterday I was young, just married and embarking on my new life.  Yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and I wonder where all the years went.  I know I lived them all.  I have glimpses of how it was back then and of all my hopes and dreams.  

But, here it is... The winter of my life and it catches me by surprise... How did I get here so fast?  Where did the years go and where did my youth go?

I remember well seeing older people through the years and thinking those older people were years away from me and winter was so far off that I could not fathom it or imagine fully what it would be like.

But, here it is... my friends are retired and getting grey - or they’re gone.  They move slower and I see an older person now.

Some are in better and some worse shape than me... but, I see the great change... They’re not like  the ones I remember who were young and vibrant... but, like me, their age is beginning to show and we are now those older folks we used to see and never thought we'd be. 

Each day now, I find just getting a shower is a real target for the day!  And taking a nap is not a treat anymore... it's mandatory!  'Cause if I don't on my own free will... I just fall asleep where I sit

And so... now I enter into this new season of my life unprepared for all the aches and pains and the loss of strength and ability to go and do things I wish I had done, but never did!

But, at least I know, although winter has come, and I'm not sure how long it will last... this I know—  when it's over on this earth... it's NOT over.  A new adventure will begin! Yes, I have regrets.  There are things I wish I hadn't done.. things I should have done; but, indeed, there are many things I'm happy to have done.  It's all in a lifetime

So, if you're not in your winter yet... let me remind you, 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!  

You have no promise you will see all the seasons of your life... so, 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 have done for them in all the years past!

"Life" is a gift to you.  The way you live your life is your gift to those who come after.  Make it a fantastic one.

LIVE IT WELL!  ENJOY TODAY!  DO SOMETHING FUN!  BE HAPPY!  HAVE A GREAT DAY!

REMEMBER:.. "Health is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.

"LIVE HAPPY IN THIS YEAR AND EVERY YEAR!”  

LASTLY, CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING:

TODAY IS THE OLDEST YOU'VE EVER BEEN, YET THE YOUNGEST YOU'LL EVER BE.

SO - ENJOY THIS DAY WHILE IT LASTS.

In the winter of your life, you’ll find that . . .

~ Your kids are becoming you...

~ Going out is good...  Coming home is 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 anything.

~ The things you used to care to do, you no longer care to do, but you really do care 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 4 letter words ... "what?"..."when?"... "what?" . . .

~ Now you can afford expensive jewelry, but it's not safe to wear it anywhere.

~ You notice everything they sell in stores is "sleeveless"!

~ What used to be freckles are now liver spots.

~ Everybody whispers.

~ You have 3 sizes of clothes in your closet...  2 of which you will never wear.

~ Old is good in some things:  Old Songs, Old movies, and best of all, OLD FRIENDS!

Stay well, "OLD FRIEND!" Consider sending this on to other "Old Friends!"  So they can laugh in AGREEMENT!
