Senior Spotlight for March 28, 2011

Mary Jo Brown

I was looking in my refrigerator trying to decide what I wanted to eat.

I had some odds and ends of vegetables and a little meat. I decided that by mixing up all of my veggies, I would have a meal and also get rid of the clutter in the fridge.

I later realized how much my life is at times like my refrigerator — full of leftovers, things to do, things left undone, things I'm going to do, want to do and should of done, etc.

So, I thought of how many of these things do I need to do, can do, and will do, etc.

Mostly, I found out on some things in my past I did what I thought was best at that time. Later, it turned out I should have probably done them differently.

But being me, I don't think it would have made any difference, considering the source. Today, I see it and know I did the best I could under the circumstances of my life at the time.
