> > I STARTED READING THIS EMAIL FAST, UNTIL I REACHED THE THIRD SENTENCE.
> > I STOPPED AND STARTED OVER READING SLOWER AND THINKING ABOUT EVERY
> > WORD. THIS EMAIL IS VERY THOUGHT PROVOKING. MAKES YOU STOP AND THINK.
> > PLEASE READ SLOWLY!
> >
> > You know ... Time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware
> > of the passing years. It seems just yesterday that I was young, just
> > married and embarking on my new life with my mate. Yet in a way, it
> > seems like eons ago, and I wonder where all the years went. I know that
> > 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 “back nine” 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 that
> > those older people were years away from me and that “I was only on the
> > first hole” and the “back nine” 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 gray...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...Not like the ones that I
> > remember who were young and vibrant...but, like me, their age is
> > beginning to show and we are now those older folks that we used to see
> > and never thought we'd become.
> >
> > Each day now, I find that 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 that I wish I had done but never did!! But, at least I know,
> > that though I’m on the “back nine”, I'm not sure how long it will
> > last...this I know, that when it's over on this earth... 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 on the “back nine” yet...let me remind you, that 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 you’re on the “back nine” or not!
> >
> > You have no promise that you will see all the seasons of your
> > life...so, live for today and say all the things that you want your
> > loved ones to remember...and hope that they appreciate and love you for
> > all the things that 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 "It is
> > health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver. LIVE
> > HAPPY IN 2014!

> > LASTLY, CONSIDER THIS: ~Your kids are becoming you......but your
> > grandchildren are perfect! ~ 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.... Especially golf. ~ The things you used to care to
> > do, you no longer care to do, but you really do care that 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?"...” ??? ~ Now that you
> > can afford expensive jewelry, 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. ~
> > ~~But Old is good in some things: Old Songs, Old movies, and best of
> > all, OLD FRIENDS!!
> >
> > Stay well, "OLD FRIEND!" Send this on to other "Old Friends!" and let
> > them laugh in AGREEMENT!!! It's Not What You Gather, But What You
> > Scatter That Tells What Kind Of Life You Have Lived.
