Life's Journey

The other day when we were in a store, my sister-in-law saw a plaque that she wanted to get me for Christmas. She said this is the perfect quote for me. We laughed so hard because of the trials and challenges I have had all my life. Here is the quote, see if it reminds you of someone  you know ... and please don't say ME! :)

"Life's Journey is not to arrive safely at the grave in a well preserved body, but rather to skin in sideways totally worn out, shouting: Woo-hoo! What a ride!"

It made us both laugh so hard, she said she just had to get it for me. I hope that even though it seems like my body is falling apart faster than I can fix it, that I can enjoy every minute of my life. I will keep this plaque close so that I can be reminded of the purpose of life!

It is late and I lost the post that I wrote earlier, maybe it just wasn't meant to be?  Anyway, hope you are having a wonderful Christmas season and remembering the true meaning of it! Good night dear friends!

I sometimes think we expect too much of Christmas Day.  We try to crowd into it the long arrears of kindliness and humanity of the whole year.  As for me, I like to take my Christmas a little at a time, all through the year.  And thus I drift along into the holidays - let them overtake me unexpectedly - waking up some find morning and suddenly saying to myself:  "Why, this is Christmas Day!"  ~David Grayson
