Words of a grandmother to her family and grandchildren, on her birthday, who turned 90..
"I was going to sort some papers and discard, well, I started reading some letters and clippings, and the afternoon was gone and I still didn't pitch much. Also, ended up being depressing as they were stuff with square dancing and to think that we were all so young and there were three thousand at the convention. So many of those friends are gone. Where has the time gone.???Life was wonderful, many happy memories but I miss those days and family and friends. But I guess I was fortunate to have such wonderful memories of happy times. My life was good.
I may sound like an old lady preaching, but you young folks live your life to the fullest, because you can't come back and redo it. So after all is said and done, you also will have happy memories to remember."
A beautiful quote from the late Barbara Bush - "At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child, or a parent." RIP Barbara.
