Ya, times have changed a lot from the old days, in many ways.
They say people live longer today, I am not so sure about that.
However, we have eliminated many diseases over the years and
have developed many life saving techniques not to mention all
the advances in health.
My grandfather lived to be in his 90's. He was still rather spry
and didn't really feel sick when he went to the emergency room.
When I visited him in the critical care, same day he passed
away....he said 'I guess they think I'm going to die PRAISE THE
LORD I'M GOING HOME' and just yelled that out. All the nurses
turned and stared.
Some hours later, he went home...
Anyway, when you're young, you don't really think so much about
ever getting old. When you're a kid you can't wait til you're 16. Then
when your 16 you can't wait til you're 18 and then 21 and then 25
and then you kind of wish you were 21 again and the next thing you
know you are 35 wishing you were 27. Turn around later and you
are 45 wondering why you weren't satisfied with being 35. Then
when you turn 50 you think all hay day has broken loose and know
that 45 wasn't so bad after all. Then one day you wake up to your
60th birthday and talk about an eye opener....that is an eye opener.
At 60 you start seeing weird things happening to your body....I mean
like really weird stuff.
