As we get older the years just seen to start flying by. And when we get to a certain point things on our bodies just seem to stop wanting to cooperate as well as they did when we were seventeen.
I have Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, a Fatty Liver, Liver disease plus a few underlying conditions lurking around in the background that I don’t even know about.
It seems the older we get the less and less we get to see people it seemed we used to see every day or at least every week. All of the sudden we start to realize that people whom once so readily called us their friend start to disappear. It all of the sudden becomes abundantly clear that we were never their close friend after all. Most of those people were just there because where we were in life at the time.
As I slowly ease into my 65th year on this earth I awaken to the fact that those whom I can truly call my friends I can now count on one hand. Some are as needy as can be and others are far less pretentious, keeping a distance but truly being there when I need their help the most. Either way I am grateful for each and every one of you.
I am even more grateful that somewhere along the way I found a partner who loves and cares about me for who I really am. One that stands by me in spite of the fact that I tend to be an ass at times. One who I know ill be there at my bedside when I’m ill just as much as be there by my side when I am victorious in life as well. Finding such a person is a GOD Send in itself.
There are so many things I have learned along the way and perhaps the most important is that sometimes GOD uses us to reach other people. At times when things are turbulent, we may wonder, why is GOD testing me this way but, we must learn to not be so selfish and realize that GOD may just be using us to test someone else.
If along the way my light has changed Even One person’s life for the better, Even if by accident I have opened their eyes and their path to salvation, I thank GOD for giving me that opportunity.
Until our final breath, we must strive to be there for our loved ones, our family, and our friends as GOD intended.
May we all live long, healthy lives and as always GOD Bless and GOD Speed.
Just another Point of View.
