Great Truths That Little Children Have Learned:

Great Truths That Adults Have Learned

1) Raising teenagers is like nailing jelly to a tree.

2) Wrinkles don’t hurt.

3) Families are like fudge...mostly sweet, with a few nuts.

4) Today’s mighty oak is just yesterday’s nut that held its ground.

5) Laughing is good exercise. It’s like jogging on the inside.

6) Middle age is when you choose your cereal for the fiber, not the toy.

Great Truths About Growing Old

1) Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional. 

2) Forget the health food. I need all the preservatives I can get. 

3) When you fall down, you wonder what else you can do while you’re down there.

4) You’re getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster. 

5) It’s frustrating when you know all the answers but nobody bothers to ask you the questions. 

6) Time may be a great healer, but it’s a lousy beautician

7) Wisdom comes with age, but sometimes age comes alone.

Life with all its up's and down's and emotional turns is really just a journey of coming full circle. A never ending process of learning and healing as we go. The bottom line is we have the choice in how we learn and live it. Our time here is to learn, heal ourselves and reach out to others. Time is really like a dream...the rowing never stops!
