Thursday's Thoughts

When I get old, I want to be a happy old lady! I want to see the best in everyone. I want a smile to come quickly to my wrinkley face. I'd like to not be bothered by what someone else thinks of me. Whatever not so great things have happened in the past, I want to be able to let them go. I want to forgive, and be forgiven. I would like to give others the benefit of the doubt. I want to wave to my neighbors, let those in a hurry go first, and be thankful every single day for life itself.

To be able to hold that attitude in one's old age, one had probably better start NOW. I don't think one can expect it to come automatically with age...

You won't believe this, but I just wrote something so similar in my journal on Wednesday night :) - thoughtful of our lives ahead.

What a sweet post. I especially like the line about those in a hurry.

I can tick quite a few of those boxes. There are definite advantages of age!
