One Woman's Wisdom for the New Year One Woman's Wisdom for the New Year
As I ponder these earth-shaking questions, I can honestly say that I have learned a few things about mid-life, and life in general:
• If you know where everything used to be, you’ll always know where to go.
• The best thing about middle age is this: just as a woman’s beauty begins to fade, her husband’s eyesight begins to fail.
• Always put your “No Trespassing” sign directly above your “Welcome” mat.
• Worry works; because most of the things I worry about never happen.
• If I plucked out all of my gray hairs, so that I won’t become gray, I would be bald.
• Plucking out the hairs on my chin, is easier than finding them.
• When I was 19, I knew everything, no need to ask. By the time I was thirty, I was pretty sure there was more to know. By the time I was forty, my kids knew everything and corrected all my mistakes. Now that I’m pushing sixty, and really do know everything, I realize how much I have yet to learn.
• Every day of my life is a struggle, yet I wake up every morning thankful to be alive. I am blessed to be aware of all God’s blessings: Sight. Sound. Touch. Taste. And Smell.
• I am so thankful that I have people in my life. My husband. My children. My friends.
• My pets have taught me more about God’s love than a thousand sermons.
• To be thankful is a gift. To be aware is a blessing. To know that God knows me; yet He still loves me is a mystery! To know that God wants my love in an intimate relationship is a miracle.
• Every morning of my life I wake up, and I begin my life anew.
