Age

Whenever there is a day that I feel old, tired, have aching knees and want to 'take things easier', I am reminded of what George Bernard Shaw said on that subject:

"The joy in life is to be used for a purpose. I want to be used up when I die."

Me too. So I turn to Miss Maya for her reminder: "You're not old, Grandma! You're new."

And I feel better. Because I too want to be busy, busy, busy till I'm all used up. And I've got a long way to go yet.

Agreed! Being used up is so much better than being idle or well rested...
