This I’ve Learned

I WAS THINKINGING…
that whenever anyone tells me I look young for my age, I know it’s time to hide my hands. They certainly don’t keep secrets. But recently I took a close look at my hands and realized the crooked knuckles and age spots are a reflection of a lifetime since they held a baby bottle. Day after day our hands toil to support our busy life. Perhaps I should flaunt them because they actually say so much. Today I will fold them together in thanksgiving.

YOU KNOW YOU ARE GETTING OLD WHEN…
you wonder if it’s worth bending over to get what you just dropped.
you think people your age are older than you.

THOUGHTS ABOUT HANDS
If you take life into your own hands, you have no one to blame.
Place your life in God’s hands and you’ll always know where to find it.
If you need a helping hand, look at the end of your arm.

ON THE WITTY SIDE OF LIFE
You are always one decision away from a totally different life.
If you stumble, make it part of your dance.
When you accept responsibility for everything in our life, you gain power to change anything in your life.
Life isn’t happening to you; it’s actually responding to you.

HOME REMEDIES FOR THE EYES
(Taken from Hints from Reader’s Digest)
Bags/Dark Circles:  Place a slice of potato or pear beneath eyes, lie down and rest for 15 minutes then rinse off residue.
Redness/Puffiness: Lie down for 15 minutes with cold cucumber slices over closed eyes. Then rub slices over face for a cool feeling.  Rinse.
Soothe tired eyes with used chamomile tea bags.

Hiccups are like coughing backwards.

    Theresa, you really manifested WISE in this weeks blog, of course your comments are always wise. I really like the frequent references to hands and the stories hands speak. Also, loved, “When you stumble make it part of your dance.” We all stumble. What’s important is how we react.

    MY 12-year old granddaughter is always holding her hands next to mine to see if hers are as big as mine yet. When I see our hands together, I see the youth and beauty in hers and the age and spots in mine. She tells me I have beautiful hands. That’s enough for me 🙂
