This is a joke - not mine!)
Whether you are pushing 40, 50, 60 (or maybe even just pushing your luck), you'll probably relate. Not only women - men too.
1.Mid-life is when the growth of hair on our legs slows down. This gives us plenty of time to care for our newly acquired mustache. Or out the nose or on the ear.
2.Mid-life is when you look at your know-it-all, cell phone carrying teenager and think, 'For this I have stretch marks?'
3.In mid-life your memory starts to go. In fact the only thing we can retain is water.
4.Mid-life means that your Body By Jake now includes Legs By Rand McNally--more red and blue lines than an accurately scaled map of Wisconsin .
5.Mid-life means that you become more reflective. You start pondering the 'big' questions. What is life? Why am I here? How much Healthy Choice ice cream can I eat before it's no longer a healthy choice?
But mid-life also brings with it an appreciation for what is important. We realize that breasts sag, hips expand, and chins double, but our loved ones make the journey worthwhile. Would any of you trade the knowledge that you have now, for the body you had way back when?
Maybe our bodies simply have to expand to hold all the wisdom and love we've acquired. That's my philosophy and I'm sticking to it!
THOUGHT OF THE DAY:
OR GRANDPA TOO!
My grandson school sent this out. They are trying to win money from Target. If you would you click on the Target site. Go to where it says zipcode and put in 30144. Shiloh Hills Christian School pops up. Then if you would vote for it - I would appreciate it. And if not - that is okay too! lol
Target is giving up to $2.5 million in support to schools through Give With Target®.
You can help Shiloh be a part of this wonderful offer. Just go to https://givewith.target.com/ and choose Shiloh Hills Christian School in the list of eligible schools and vote weekly for Shiloh through September 8th or when $2.5 million in Target Gift Cards® have been awarded, whichever occurs first. Shiloh will receive a $25 Target Gift Card for every 25 votes received during the Promotion Period; up to a maximum of $10,000 in gift cards.
