A 92-year-old, large, relaxed and proud man, who is fully dressed each morning by eight o'clock,
with his hair combed and face shaved properly,
even though he is legally blind, moved to a nursing home today.
His wife of 70 years recently passed away, making the move necessary.
After many hours of waiting patiently in the lobby of the nursing home,
he smiled genuinely when told is room was ready.
As he manoeuvred his walker to the elevator,
I provided a visual description of his tiny room,
including the eyelet sheets that had been hung on his window.
"I love it," he stated with the enthusiasm of an eight-year-old
having just been presented with a new puppy.
"Mr. Jones, you haven't seen the room; just wait."
Somebody should tell us,
that we are dying.
Then we might live life to the limit,
every minute of every day.
Do it! I say.
Whatever you want to do, do it now!
There are only so many tomorrows.
