Just before the funeral services, the undertaker came up to the very elderly widow and asked, 
‘How old was your husband?’ ’98,’ she replied. 
‘Two years older than me’ 
‘So you’re 96,’ the undertaker commented. 
She responded, ‘Hardly worth going home, is it?

 

Reporters interviewing a 104-year-old woman: 
‘And what do you think is the best thing 
About being 104?’ the reporter asked. 
She simply replied, ‘No peer pressure.’

 

The nice thing about being senile is 
You can hide your own Easter eggs.

 

I’ve sure gotten old!   
I’ve had two bypass surgeries, a hip replacement, 
New knees, fought prostate cancer and diabetes 
I’m half blind, 
Can’t hear anything quieter than a jet engine, 
Take 40 different medications that 
Make me dizzy, winded, and subject to blackouts. 
Have bouts with dementia . 
Have poor circulation; 
Hardly feel my hands and feet anymore. 
Can’t remember if I’m 85 or 92. 
Have lost all my friends.
But, thank God, 
I still have my driver’s license.

 

I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape, 
So I got my doctor’s permission to 
Join a fitness club and start exercising. 
I decided to take an aerobics class for seniors. 
I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour. But, 
By the time I got my leotards on, 
The class was over.

 

My memory’s not as sharp as it used to be. 
Also, my memory’s not as sharp as it used to be.

 

Know how to prevent sagging? 
Just eat till the wrinkles fill out.

 

It’s scary when you start making the same noises 
As your coffee maker. 

 

THE SENILITY PRAYER: 
Grant me the senility to forget the people 
I never liked anyway, 
The good fortune to run into the ones I do, and 
The eyesight to tell the difference.

 

Now, I think you’re supposed to share this with 5 or 6, maybe 10 others. Oh heck, give it to a bunch of your friends if you can remember who they are! 
  
Always Remember This: 
You don’t stop laughing because you grow old, 
You grow old because you stop laughing!!

New Year Resolutions !

1. Take a 10-30 minute walk every day. And while you walk, smile.  It is the ultimate anti-depressant.

2. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.

3. Buy a DVR and tape your late night shows and get more sleep.

4. When you wake up in the morning complete the following statement, ‘My   purpose is to __________ today.’

5. Live with the 3 E’s — Energy, Enthusiasm, and Empathy. 

6. Play more games and read more books than you did in 2008.

7. Make time to practice meditation, and prayer.

They provide us with daily fuel for our busy lives.

8. Spend time with people over the age of 70 and under the age of 6.

9. Dream more while you are awake.

10. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.

11. Drink green tea and plenty of water. Eat blueberries, wild Alaskan salmon, broccoli, almonds & walnuts.

12. Try to make at least three people smile each day.

13. Clear clutter from your house, your car, your desk and let new and flowing energy into your life.

14. Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip, OR issues of the past, negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.

15. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.

16. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a college kid with a maxed out charge card.

17. Smile and laugh more. It will keep the NEGATIVE BLUES away.

18. Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.

19. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

20. Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

21. You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

22. Make peace with your past so it won’t spoil the present.

23. Don’t compare your life to others’. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

24. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

25. Frame every so-called disaster with these words: ‘In five years, will this matter?’

26. Forgive everyone for everything.

27. What other people think of you is none of your business.

28. Remember God heals everything.

29. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

30. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick.  Your friends will.  Stay in touch.

31. Get rid of anything that isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful.

32. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

33. The best is yet to come.

34. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

35. Do the right thing!

36. Call your family often. (Or email them to death!)

37. Each night before you go to bed complete the following statements: I am   thankful for __________. Today I accomplished _________.

38. Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.

39. Enjoy the ride. Remember this is not Disney World and you certainly don’t want a fast pass. You only have one ride through life so make the most of it and enjoy the ride.

40. Please have this read by everyone you care about.  I just did.

May your troubles be less,

May your blessings be more,

May nothing but happiness come through your door!

Happy New Year !

How do you know if it’s real love ? Every night you think of what either seperates you from that person or what holds you together !

48cI definitely want to say by this message that I will never, ever, take care of anyone’s problems again, talk to them about their troubles, give them advice or take care of them or their worries, try to open up their eyes, try to love them even more by being caring and understanding.
I am fed up that actually, which I was afraid of, it makes it even worse, it comes back in your face as if you’ve been hit.

So I AM GONE, I AM NOT HERE ANYMORE, I am going to be, what d’you call it? Oh yes, “BEING SELFISH”!!! 

I am going to enjoy even more my husband, my kids; they love me, we cherish each other more than anything else in this world and I am going to go wherever I want, I am going to do whatever I want, and I can clean up my own s***, as I have always done. (Even if they think I should do some more…)

I am angry and very disappointed, but not for long…

 For many years already I have understood what life means, what love means. What I am going to do in 2009 and all the years after that is having fun and enjoy !
As long as I live, there will be peace around me for the people that share my love and understanding and the serenity I am looking for!

I’ve learned my lesson again, “take care of your own business”, if that is what they are trying to tell me, well, I will!
Thanks for helping me out here! But don’t be surprised if I don’t listen anymore, I have enough to take care of in my own life, as I have been told…
