Tuesday With MeMe

Senior Moments

Create in me a happy heart,
preserve my memory safe and sound.
May all my aches and pains be little ones,
and let the things I lose be found.
Send me, I pray, my daily smiles,
a serving of prunes and bran.
Help me accept my graying hair,
and keep the most of it I can.
Remind me to forgive myself
when senior moments come along.
Provide a time for exercise so
these old bones stay fit and strong.
Lord, keep my attitude upbeat and
free from worry, cares, and fears.
Each day, help me appreciate the
gift and goodness of my years.

Beautiful poem... Almost made me cry. Seeing my father-in-law continue to live with no quality of life much at all just hurts so much. I don't pray for Dad to die --but I do pray that God take care of him.... Being 100 is HARD....
