The Winter Of Our Lives

winter landscape 3

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. And yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and I wonder where all the years went.

I know that I lived them all... And 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 that those older people were years away from me and that 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... they move slower and I see an older person now. Lots are in better 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 be.

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 the winter has come, and I'm not sure how long it will last... this I know, that when it's over... its over.... 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, 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 this is your winter or not!

You have no promise that you will see all the seasons of your life, so, live for good 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 you. Make it a fantastic one!

Points To Ponder

Something to think about
  • Why do you have to "put your two cents in".. but it's only a "penny for your thoughts"? Where's that extra penny going to?
  • Why do round pizzas come in square boxes?
  • How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?
  • Why is it that people say they "slept like a baby" when babies wake up just about every two hours?
  • Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in crappy binoculars to look at things way down on the ground?
  • Why do doctors leave the room while you change? They're going to see you naked anyway.
  • Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat?
