Listless Tired with Irregularity?

This song should make you feel a lot better.
It's beautiful.

This is so true about old people.

I never really liked the term "Old Person" but this makes me feel better about it.
And if you aren't one, I bet you know one!
I got this from an "Old Person" friend of mine!
I'm passing this on as I did not want to be the only old person receiving it. Actually, it's not a bad thing to be called, as you will see.
  • Old People are easy to spot at sporting events; during the playing of the National Anthem. Old People remove their caps and stand at attention and sing without embarrassment. They know the words and believe in them.
  • Old People remember World War II, Pearl Harbor, Guadalcanal , Normandy , and Hitler. They remember the Atomic Age, the Korean War, The Cold War, the Jet Age and the Moon Landing. They remember the 50 plus Peace-keeping Missions from 1945 to 2005, not to mention Vietnam .
  • If you bump into an Old Person on the sidewalk he will apologize. If you pass an Old Person on the street, he will nod or tip his cap to a lady. Old People trust strangers and are courtly to women.
  • Old People hold the door for the next person and always, when walking, make certain the lady is on the inside for protection.
  • Old People get embarrassed if someone curses in front of women and children and they don't like any filth or dirty language on TV or in movies.
  • Old People have moral courage and personal integrity. They seldom brag unless it's about their children or grandchildren.
  • It's the Old People who know our great country is protected, not by politicians, but by the young men and women in the military serving their country.

    This country needs Old People with their work ethic, sense of responsibility, pride in their country and decent values.

    We need them now more than ever.
    Thank God for Old People.
Pass this on to all of the "Old People" you know.

I was taught to respect my elders.
It's just getting harder to find them.

I am not really that old but looking back you see yourself slowly losing everything meaningful, and familiar
Parents children landmarks and how many friends who passed away at 8 12 14 20 29,48
Age is never a factor when fate decides.
Strong healthy people, struck down in seconds while those who you consider ailing and withering manage to hold on till they reach ripe old ages in their 90's.
We watch them celebrate birthdays with big smiles and people ask them the secret to their longevity.
Lots of sex they tease.
Good shot of brandy before bed time.
You look at these people and swear you see a halo, an aura surround them.
And then you think, well maybe they were meant to be so people could look into their beautiful old souls and be nurtured by the experience.
And as each day passes and you watch yourself getting older you can't help but ask,
will I be one of those people the young will be impressed with one day, as I am today with those born before my time?
And then you see young people with issues and drug adds helping them get over being
listless tired with irregularities and you think, where do they find time to dwell over such things when life is so full and enriching,
if only they would step outside
and take a look.

Have a great day! :)

"Old people" are and have always been my favourite audience. You can never get bored when they're around.

I don't remember WWII I was born in the middle. I don't sing and I don't wear a cap. I don't believe in politicians but not in military either because they are guided by the politicians. I think if they want to protect their country they should all go themselves in a ring, and the people watch them fighting. Lots of lives would be safed !

Gattina - I hope you realize, This is generalization.I am sure you have plenty to divulge to your son and now grandson, of your life, of the lessons you learned, survival skills, the life you had with your husband, the experiences of war and school after it was over, the changes from before to today, the painting lessons , cats, writing, work you did.......the list goes on.
In the meantime, you enjoy things you find around you, for everything that comes your way ,comes with a purpose.
