Senior Spotlight for July 15, 2013

Spending a lot of time by myself allows me to come up with insightful ideas and thoughts. It occurred to me this past week that even though I have the best of intentions, little does it matter what I want to happen as to what actually does. Days are a mixture of those spent trying to just make it through the day and accomplishing very little and those days that I get up and tell myself, “Today I will get something done for sure” and actually do accomplish something.

I know many of you can identify with the restrictions that come from getting older, physical ailments and handicaps. One of the things that bothers me the most is not being able to go places, help others, hold a job and the independence that comes with all of those things.

Although I have these restrictions, I also am thankful that I can do what I can. I know that I am a lot more able than many others. I have my family, my mind still works (for the most part), I still am able move on my own, though pretty slowly sometimes, and there is the strength that the good Lord provides to help me through each day.

Those things are what really count, so if what I want to happen doesn’t always end up being how the day goes? I know that I am still blessed. Maybe my insightful ideas really are my imagination, which is only intelligence having some fun.

Birthday wishes go out to Zachariah Tabor, Iris Owens and Tisa Knibbs.

Get well wishes and speedy recovery wishes to Avery Michaels, Derek Murata, Blake Smith, Dan Igleheart, Dolores Harper and Amanda Foot.
