Q: Quite True

Growing old isn’t so bad when you consider the alternative.
Author unknown

This is such a true statement. Because as much as we (I) can mumble, grumble, and complain about getting older – I’d still much rather age and get to a very old age, than go with the alternative.

Although it’s a given that one day each of us will be leaving this earthly planet, we don’t want to get there too soon. We want to have as long a life as possible, enjoying our time here with family and friends. So in looking at the two doors that are available to us each day – one opens to a day older and closer to old age, while the other one is a direct transport to a heavenly sphere – I’ll take the doorway that leads to growing older as long as I possibly can.

    Well, this is depressing. True, but depressing. :-/

    I say this a lot, especially since I lost my husband when I was 57 and I have lost several friends who weren’t even 50 yet. #MLSTL #sharethebloglove

      That’s young to become a widow. I lost my brother at age 35 and my stepson at age 26. No, a long life is not guaranteed and every day should be appreciated.
      Thanks for stopping by.

    Indeed, until the very last breath, the gift of a new day is precious.

    I figure we’ll all go through the eternal door one day, but the longer we get here, the more we’ll appreciate (and be ready for eternity) when the time comes. Life is truly precious and I’m grateful for every day I have with those I love.
    Thanks for linking up with us at MLSTL and I’ve shared on my SM 🙂

    This is a good perspective to keep in mind. My Dad used to say that any day above ground is a good one.
