Grandaughter's Birthday My Opinion

I was sitting next to my granddaughter’s great grandfather at her birthday party. (This pic is to cute… she’s actually on a pony.)

I believe he’s close to 80 years of age and  he’s having a few health issues.  He turns to me and basically says, “This is all the enjoyment I get,  sitting here watching her on the pony.”  He really can’t do anything else.  To me, this was sad,  it also was telling me, this is your future. We get old, it’s a fact, not much we can do about it.  I’m sure he gets pleasure knowing his family will go on, and that he had a part in creating this. But is it enough?  Not for me, I want more out of life. I’ve got about 30 years left if I’m lucky.  If this isn’t motivation I don’t know what is.  As you get older the years do go by faster, as they say, “Time is wasted on the young.”  Then there’s always “Make hay while the sun shines.”  For those of you wanting to make a difference I salute you and I am in your ranks and this old man needs to turn his life around. Wish me luck on my journey!
