Things to live by....

Recommended Posts

I went to the hospital today to visit a friend I've know since 1959. I'm 70 and he's 5 years older than me and he's had a rough life but the good news is he is on the mend and goes home on Monday. He shared a thought to live by his father shared with him some 50 odd years ago on his death bed. The old man said to him..."Life is at best uncertain......so always eat your dessert first". He's been unable to not think of that every time he sits down to eat when a dessert is involved.

I'm going to take that advice to heart starting tonight.

I've heard that saying for most of my life, but my mom would have no part of that growing up.  I've done it a few times, and I've even seen her do it here lately at the ripe old age of 94.  :rock:

Great advice. At 71, soon to be 72, I think I will eat that b-day cake first . Come to think of it, just may do that from now on.

At 94 she can do whatever she wants to.

I wish my mother-in-law would get that with her 93 yr old father. It bugs me.... He 93 and in better shape than she is, but she treats him like a kid. If anyone has earned it, he has.
