Hi. Still enjoying my mother's visit, and it's hard to believe a week has flown by already. Last week Dixie @dcrelief suggested I interview her on some 'long life advice', since she recently celebrated her 90th birthday.
Here are some words Mom wanted to share . . .
There is one thing that is certain,
You are not going to stay young forever!
"Yes," that's a hard one to believe or want to believe.
Always make the best of each year, as it is the greatest!
Even if hardships happen . . .
surprising how one can sneak up on you. "Yes."
Always stay young in spirit, having great faith in God.
Let age come gracefully.

Where oh where are those years gone by?
Some behind and kept like new.
Memories great shall not die.
So much more one must claim.
Now they tell me I am 90, "Oh my."
The best there is we shall see.
Honest stories ahead: no lie.
Continue on and finish.
Then gracefully say to all, "Goodbye."
