Yet Another Email Share

This wonderful email post came from a very dear and special friend.
It was one of those you just want to share with everyone.

I took some of the things out as it was more towards a forward for email, so I did some adjustments.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
There are so many truths inside this.
It warmed my heart and touched me with a huge smile and a bit of laughter to pass along to ALL!
Thank you to each and all that have brought a slice of heaven to my small part of the world and sharing with me your friendship.
Thank you Crystal for the beautiful email.




 LOVE THIS ONE!!!!!  
As I've aged, I've become kinder to myself, and less critical of  myself. I've become my own friend.. 

I have seen too many dear friends leave this world too soon; before  they understood the great freedom that comes with aging.

Whose business is it if I choose to read or play on the computer  until 4 AM or sleep until noon? I will dance with myself to those wonderful tunes of the 60 &70's, and if I, at the same time, wish  to weep over a lost love .. I will.


I will walk the beach in a swim suit that is stretched over a bulging body, and will dive into the waves with  abandon if I choose to, despite the pitying glances from the jet set.

They, too, will get old.

I know I am sometimes forgetful.  But there again, some of life is just as well forgotten.. And I  eventually remember the important things..

Sure, over the years my heart has been broken. How can your heart not  break when you lose a loved one, or when a child suffers, or even when some body's beloved pet gets hit by a car? But broken  hearts are what give us strength and understanding and compassion. A heart never broken is pristine and sterile and will  never know the joy of being imperfect.



I am so blessed to have lived long enough to have  my hair turning gray, and to have my youthful laughs be forever  etched into deep grooves on my face.

So many have never laughed, and so many have died before their hair could turn silver.
As you get older, it is easier to be positive. You care less about  what other people think. I don't question myself anymore..
I've even earned the right to be wrong.

So, to answer your question, I like being old. It has set me free. I  like the person I have become I am not going to live forever, but while I am still here,
I will not waste time lamenting what could  have been, or worrying about what will be. And I shall eat dessert  every single day(if I feel like it)


MAY OUR FRIENDSHIP NEVER COME APART ESPECIALLY WHEN IT'S STRAIGHT  FROM THE HEART!


How do you feel about growing older?
