Sentada en el portal de mi casa. observando los pajaros que aun llegan a tomar agua al bebedero ,y respirando la frescura de la tarde. me pregunto que importancia tiene la edad...

¿A qué edad he llegado?
Mis pensamientos vuelan y respondo...
La edad en que se olvidan los rencores y se perdonan los errores.
La edad en que lo más mínimo tiene importancia y en que lo que más importa pasa y puede esperar .
La edad de comprender cuán pequeñas son las grandezas y cuán valiosa es la pequeñez .
La edad de ver a los hijos hacer sus vidas y a los nietos crecer sin nuestra responsabilidad.
La edad en que las lágrimas afloran rápidamente y la sonrisa brota al menor indicio de dulzura.
La edad, " de recordar con Alegría a los Amigos de toda una vida .
La edad de los recuerdos y los olvidos.
La edad que nunca voy a olvidar...
"Esta es la edad a la que he llegado "
Sitting on the porch of my house. watching the birds that come to the birdbath to drink water, and breathing the cool of the evening. I wonder how important age is ...
What age I have reached?
My thoughts flow and I answer ...
The age at which grudges are forgotten and mistakes are forgiven.
The age at which the least is important and when what matters most can wait.
The age to understand how small greatness is and  how valuable smallness is.
The age to see the children live out their lives and the grandchildren grow without our responsibility.
The age when tears come quickly and a smile gushes at the slightest hint of sweetness.
The age to remember with joy the friends of a lifetime.
The age of memories and forgetfulness.
The age I will never forget ...
This is the age to which I have arrived.

The year is 1915 - Over one hundred years ago

Here are some statistics for the year:

The average life expectancy for men was 47 years.

Fuel for cars was sold in drug stores only.

Only 14 percent of the homes had a bathtub.

Only 8 percent of the homes had a telephone.

The maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 mph.

The tallest structure in the world was the Eiffel Tower.

A competent accountant could expect to earn $2000 per year.

A dentist $2,500 per year.

A veterinarian between $1,500 and $4,000 per year.

And, a mechanical engineer about $5,000 per year.

More than 95 percent of all births took place at home

Ninety percent of all Doctors had NO COLLEGE EDUCATION!
Instead, they attended so-called medical schools, many of which were condemned in the press AND the government as "substandard."

Sugar cost four cents a pound.
Eggs were fourteen cents a dozen.
Coffee was fifteen cents a pound.

Most women only washed their hair once a month,
And, used Borax or egg yolks for shampoo.

Canada passed a law that prohibited poor people from entering into their country for any reason.

Two out of every 10 adults couldn't read or write

And, only 6 percent of all Americans had graduated from high school.

Marijuana, heroin, and morphine were all available over the counter at local corner drugstores.

Back then pharmacists said, "Heroin clears the complexion, gives buoyancy to the mind, regulates the stomach, bowels, and is, in fact, a perfect guardian of health!"

Eighteen percent of households had at least one full-time servant or domestic help.

There were about 230 reported; murders in the ENTIRE U.S.A.

"Don't worry about avoiding temptation. As you grow older, it will avoid you." --- Winston Churchill

SYMPATHY: When Grieving Over The Death Of a Best Friend

I'm old. What that means is that I've survived (so far) and a lot of people I've known and loved did not.

I've lost friends, best friends, acquaintances, co-workers, grandparents, mom, relatives, teachers, mentors, students, neighbors, and a host of other folks. I have no children, and I can't imagine the pain it must be to lose a child. But here's my two cents...

I wish I could say you get used to people dying. But I never did. I don't want to. It tears a hole through me whenever somebody I love dies, no matter the circumstances. But I don't want it to "not matter". I don't want it to be something that just passes. My scars are a testament to the love and the relationship that I had for and with that person. And if the scar is deep, so was the love. So be it.

Scars are a testament to life. Scars are a testament that I can love deeply and live deeply and be cut, or even gouged, and that I can heal and continue to live and continue to love. And the scar tissue is stronger than the original flesh ever was. Scars are a testament to life. Scars are only ugly to people who can't see.

As for grief, you'll find it comes in waves. When the ship is first wrecked, you're drowning, with wreckage all around you. Everything floating around you reminds you of the beauty and the magnificence of the ship that was, and is no more. And all you can do is float. You find some piece of the wreckage and you hang on for a while. Maybe it's some physical thing. Maybe it's a happy memory or a photograph. Maybe it's a person who is also floating. For a while, all you can do is float. Stay alive.

In the beginning, the waves are 100 feet tall and crash over you without mercy. They come 10 seconds apart and don't even give you time to catch your breath. All you can do is hang on and float. After a while, maybe weeks, maybe months, you'll find the waves are still 100 feet tall, but they come further apart. When they come, they still crash all over you and wipe you out. But in between, you can breathe, you can function. You never know what's going to trigger the grief. It might be a song, a picture, a street intersection, the smell of a cup of coffee. It can be just about anything...and the wave comes crashing. But in between waves, there is life.

Somewhere down the line, and it's different for everybody, you find that the waves are only 80 feet tall. Or 50 feet tall. And while they still come, they come further apart. You can see them coming. An anniversary, a birthday, or Christmas, or landing at O'Hare. You can see it coming, for the most part, and prepare yourself. And when it washes over you, you know that somehow you will, again, come out the other side. Soaking wet, sputtering, still hanging on to some tiny piece of the wreckage, but you'll come out.

Take it from an old guy. The waves never stop coming, and somehow you don't really want them to. But you learn that you'll survive them. And other waves will come. And you'll survive them too.

If you're lucky, you'll have lots of scars from lots of loves. And lots of shipwrecks. (author unknown)
