I am about the same age today, that my mom was in this picture.
She had seven “good” years left before the symptoms of Lewy Body disease started to show and would slowly take her life.
I've thought about this a lot lately; am I living my life in such a way, if I only had seven “good” years left, would I have no regrets?
Am I focusing on the people and things that really matter?
Am I expressing my gratitude each day for blessings big and small?
Am I saying yes when I mean yes and no when I mean no?
Am I exercising my body and brain daily?
Am I having fun and laughing regularly?
Am I using my gifts to serve others?
Am I making a difference?
It's like a simple flow chart to help make and prioritize decisions.
One of my favorite aunts often said, you don't get your brains until you're in your forties.
Tomorrow I turn 48. I guess for me, it's better late than never.
