A 92-year-old, petite, well-poised and proud man, who is fully dressed each morning by eight o’clock, perfectly shaven and hair fashionably combed (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 sweetly when told his room was ready.
As he maneuvered 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."
"That doesn’t have anything to do with it," he replied. "Happiness is something you decide on ahead of time. Whether I like my room or not doesn't depend on how the furniture is arranged … it’s how I arrange my mind. I already decided to love it.
"It’s a decision I make every morning when I wake up. I have a choice; I can spend the day in bed recounting the difficulty I have with the parts of my body that no longer work, or get out of bed and be thankful for the ones that do. Each day is a gift, and as long as my eyes open, I’ll focus on the new day and all the happy memories I've stored away.. Just for this time in my life."
Old age is like a bank account. You withdraw from what you’ve put in. So, my advice to you would be to deposit a lot of happiness in the bank account of memories!
I like to get an really obnoxious bright yarn and cut it into pieces around 4" - 6" long. I spread it on branches around the yard for the birds. Then in the summer I look for the nests that used it. It is amazing how far away from home you'll see that yarn!I remembered her idea when I was at a thrift shop today, and looked in the craft section to see if they had any yarn. There were two large plastic bins filled with a potpourri of ribbons, bags of pom poms, buttons, and skeins of pastel colored yarn. However, as I dug around, in the bottom of the bin I found a small package of "Sun Orange" latch hook yarn. Bingo!
Save Big with Refurbished Spices by Ginger Renood
Instead of buying new spices, refurbish your old ones! Honestly, can anyone get through a full bottle of cloves before the expiration date? We worked with a team of scientists in Amsterdam to develop the Hoopensifterfreshentoner™ — a familiar looking tool that strengthens our team member’s core muscles while freshening your spices. To use the Hoopensifterfreshentoner™ we slowly pour the old spice into an extra large hula-hoop. Then we add hemp seeds, which circulate with the old spice to fluff and freshen it. Finally, one of our team members hula-hoops for 20 minutes to refurbish the spice. It’s an easy way to keep our team members fit, and prevents trillions of spice particles from clogging our landfills. Bring in your expired spices ready for refurbishing and you’ll receive a coupon for 20% off your purchase from our new gently used spice line. We have a wide selection of gently used spices that we’ve freshened up, repackaged, and are now selling for pennies on the dollar. Buy as little or as much as you need.
