The other half of my life…a poem*

Just thinking about the years when I begin to grow older and wiser,

I am a bit happy and a bit sad.

Will I be one that does not remember my family?

Will I be one who has trouble with every day tasks?

Or, perhaos I will be one

who runs miles till the end

with a smile of happiness and joy

For the world is a place that does offer those options

We have only to seek them and succeed

with our thoughts.

So, I decided I will continue to conquer

on with this life and

take what is thrown my way.

What other choice do I really have?

Have a fun Friday!

What do you call a woman who knows where her husband is every night?
A widow.

***

I think the only reason my husband likes to go fishing so much is that it’s the only time he hears someone tell him, “Wow, that’s a big one!”

***

What’s the difference between a new husband and a new dog?
1) After a year, the dog is still excited to see you.
2) A dog only takes a couple of months to train.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

PASS THIS ON TO FRUSTRATE THE
SMART PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE!
HAVE A NICE DAY, ONE AND ALL.

As I go out on my daily adventures, I am honored to meet many interesting people around town. They are interesting to me bacause they always seem to offer a different and bright perpective on things. Some of their beliefs and attitudes simply amaze me. I am fascinated with their homesty and zest for life. They seem to treat everything in their lives as a challenge they are priviledged to conquer. They feel priviledged becuase they are alive to tackle the hurdles that are made higher and higher each day for them! They just take it with a grain of salt, and keep plugging along. The people I refer to are the senior citizens of my town that I have the honor of knowing. I sure do appreciate them and I sure do appreciate them taking the time to explain about this crazy world we live in. You can have the same rewards. Just take a few minutes to stop and listen. That’s it. That is all they request!
