Aging

I came across this in some old files today. When I copied and saved it eight years ago, my mirror wasn't malfunctioning nearly as badly as it is now.

I look in the mirror, and what do I see?
A strange looking person who cannot be me;
For I am much younger, not nearly so fat,
As the face in the mirror that I'm looking at.
Oh, where are the mirrors that I used to know,
Like the ones of thirty years or so ago?
All things have changed, and I'm sure you'll agree
Mirrors are not as good as they used to be!

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)

Thanks for reading.
