My View #169 - My Candle

My candle is slowly losing its glimmer. At this age you dwell a lot on your past life and what it has been all about and why. Mom once said to me, "Don't push your boat too far into the sea, when you know you can't swim." Now I know what she meant. Live in the present, the future will take care of itself. She was a wise Mom and never showed how worried she was, to the rest of us. Some things that occur in life, no-one else will know, and are taken to the grave with us.

One a more cheerful note, now I'm started on year 97, I wonder what wonders I will see before my feet grow cold. Have a laugh at my expense, and have a wonderful life. My eyes are my candles.

I just had to be a pig and write a bit more, when I said "this is the last" of my pen days.

Love from
Mom

I am happy and have a wonderful family.

Mom wrote this the day after her 96th birthday. I wish I'd had the opportunity to meet my Grandmother. Sadly, she died before any of her grandchildren were born.
