Nothing Lasts Forever!

When I was in my younger days, 
I weighed a few pounds less, 
I needn't hold my tummy in 
To wear a belted dress. 

But now that I am older, 
I've set my body free; 
There's comfort of elastic 
Where once my waist would be.

Inventor of those high-heeled shoes 
My feet have not forgiven; 
I have to wear a nine now, 
But used to wear a seven. 

And how about those pantyhose-- 
They're sized by weight, you see, 
So how come when I put them on, 
The crotch is at my knees? 

 I need to wear these glasses 
As the prints were getting smaller; 
I know that I was taller. 

Though my hair has turned to silver 
and my skin no longer fits, 
On the inside, I'm the same old me, 
Just the outside's changed a bit.


On a positive note I've learned that 
no matter what happens, 
or how bad it seems today, 
life does go on, 
and it will be better tomorrow. 

I've learned that you can tell a lot 
about a person by the way he/she handles 
these three things: 
- a rainy day 
- lost luggage 
- tangled Christmas tree lights. 

I've learned that regardless of your 
relationship with your parents 
you'll miss them when they're gone 
from your life. 

I learned that making a "living" 
is not the same thing as making a "life." 
I've learned that life sometimes 
gives you a second chance. 

I've learned that you shouldn't 
go through life with a catcher's mitt 
on both hands. You need to be able 
to throw something back. 

I've learned that if you pursue happiness, 
it will elude you. 
But if you focus on your family, 
your friends, the needs of others, your work, 
and doing the very best you can, 
happiness will find you. 

I've learned that even when I have pains, 
I don't have to be one. 
I've learned that every day 
you should reach out and touch someone.
People love that human touch -- 
holding hands, a warm hug, 
or just a friendly pat on the back. 

I've learned that people will forget 
what you said, 
people will forget 
what you did, 
but people will never forget 
how you made them feel.

I've learned that I still have a lot to learn. 
 I've learned that you should pass this on 
to someone you care about. 
I just did. 

Sometimes they just need 
a little something 
to make them smile.
