Dates are on aps lol. They are glued to the cell.
Did u always have a positive attitude
I guess that miserable can be on their dating profile and they can meet their match. What a bummer. And yes, I think I've always been pretty positive. Theres always been something good in my life. Even if it was just a yummy coffee or warm sunshine on a cold day, how can I say its all bad?

I think I grew up the total opposite. I was very dark and cursed the sun for rising in the morning. I made decisions that hurt me and others without caring because I didn't feel hope. Now I am learning to appreciate the simple things. There's a book I read, cold the tattooist of Auschwitz. Reading about the suffering changed my mind on waking up in the morning. Have you read this

I am, 71 years old but that is older than my father and grandfather lived as cancer has run in our family. It killed my father's father, my father, and my sister when she was only 44 years old. She was born three years after me. I have experienced two cancer scares but praise God, He helped me dodge the bullets. Getting older is certainly not for wimps.:)

No, I haven't read that. I think its healthy to discover what you can do to give hope and more happiness to your life. Was the book about the person that tattooed the prisoner numbers?

You know you are getting old when you hear a noise in the middle of the night and instead of getting up and checking on it you just lie there and think, "Eh whatever. I've had a good run."

Yes. That is the one. For me, human spirit is interesting.

Personally I do not fear death. I have come close to death quite a few times over my lifetime even being turned around from death's door once. I take comfort in knowing:

2 Corinthians 5:8
New King James Version


8 We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.

As a direct descendant of Peter Pan I refuse to grow old...
Unfortunately I only inherited the genetic emotional aspect of not getting old. The physical genetics part isn't exactly working out.

Why are old people like a calendar?

Both their days are numbered! ☺️
It doesn't apply to older people these days as more & more people dying & getting killed are younger than I am

Yes, in today's society, you are stating what seems to be "all too true"...Let us pray for more "peace on earth!" 💯

Well shoot! Here I was hoping it would be easier to be good when I got old.
Nope lol, isn't going to get easier, but you do what you can for as long as you can. What gets me is being old is, that some people treat you like you are stupid. I'm pretty quick to pick up on that & tell them, I might be old, but that doesn't mean I'm stupid lol
