Thankful for each day of living

Each air breathed

Each moment cherished

Each smile shared

Each friend made….and kept

Each lesson learned and other lessons to be learned


Everything that has been given,

thank you Lord for the graces

I want to be wiser when I grow old

The chapters of my life, I will have told

I don’t want to be young forever, what good will that be?

To never mature and learn and be free?

No, that’s not what I want, that’s not what I plan

I’ll do my best to grow old, I know I can

Oh to be old, with wrinkles and gray hair

I couldn’t think of what would look more fair

To be able to reach the age of seventy

That would be a gift of plenty

I want to be like Betty White

Who grows old gracefully, such a shinning light
