On Getting On...

The older I get:....

The more I enjoy sleeping in.

The more I like just staying around the house.

The more I enjoy the giggles and laughter of my family.

The more I like the smiles of my friends and acquaintances.

The more I enjoy a good book and a cuppa coffee.

The more I appreciate a hug.

The more my faith means to me.

The more I admire the "heroes" of my community. ( Medical personnel, Fire and rescue, and police.)

The more I enjoy the beautiful lights and sounds of Christmas.

The more time I want to spend just being me.

The more I love being alive and being free to do all things.

Senior citizens and those of you who aren't there yet, but might be close, enjoy life today.  Tomorrow isn't here yet, and yesterday is gone and done with.  As someone wiser than me once said, "Today is a gift...that's why it's call the "present."
