Life Goes On
Deep in the heart of every one,
There is a wide frontier,
A vast expanse to overcome,
Beset with toil and tear.
There is no smooth and easy path,
Each one must find their way,
And prove their merit traveling on
With Faith, from day to day.

Yesterday was not a good day, Another blood test and a discussion with the doctor that I didn’t like. Some days I feel way older than what I am. But life goes on and we deal with it the best way that we can.
I met an interesting lady while I was sitting waiting to have the blood drawn. She was a hoot to talk to. She said she would be 89 on her birthday that is coming soon. Man, she looked better than I do but then I was having an extremely trying morning. She told me that her kids (that is what she called them, although I think they were almost as old as I am) took her car away from her last year and told her she couldn’t drive anymore. She told me it broke her heart but she had figured out a way to get even. She said that every appointment she has, no matter where it might be, that one of her kids has to take her. She was laughing as she was saying this. My daughter was sitting there smiling and this lady told her to pay attention and to remember that we all grow old if we are lucky enough. Young people think that their parents will live forever. Not so! Appreciate your parents while they are here and help them whenever they need help. You know what? I would like to get up on the rooftops and shout that lady’s word at the top of my lungs hoping just one person would pay attention. Not gonna happen!
This morning I have to go to the pharmacy and back by the grocery store. I hope you all have a good weekend.
