Just a warm story to share:
Food for thought:
Her Name is Rose

The first day of school our professor
introduced himself and challenged us to get to know someone we didn't already know. I stood up to look around when a gentle hand touched my shoulder.
I turned around to find a wrinkled, little old lady beaming up at me with a
smile that lit up her entire being.
She said,'Hi handsome. My name is
Rose. I'm eighty-seven years old. Can I
give you a hug?' I laughed and enthusiastically responded,'Of course you may!'and she gave me a giant squeeze.'Why are you in college at such a young, innocent age?' I asked. She jokingly replied,'I'm here to meet a rich husband, get married, and have a couple of kids...''No seriously,' I asked. I was curious what may have motivated her to be taking on this challenge at her age.'I always dreamed of having a college education and now I'm getting one!'she told me. After class we walked to the student union building and shared a chocolate
milkshake. We became instant friends.

Every day for the next three months we would leave class together and talk nonstop. I was always mesmerized listening to this 'time machine' as she shared her wisdom and experience with me. Over the course of the year, Rose became a campus icon and she easily made
friends wherever she went. She loved to
dress up and she reveled in the attention bestowed upon her from the other students. She was living it up.

At the end of the semester we invited Rose to speak at our football banquet. I'll never forget what she taught us. She was introduced and stepped up to the podium. As she began to deliver her prepared speech, she dropped her three by five cards on the floor. Frustrated and a little embarrassed she leaned into the microphone and simply said,'I'm sorry I'm so jittery. I gave up beer for Lent and this whiskey is killing me! I'll never get my speech back in order so let me just tell you what I know.'As we laughed she cleared her throat and
began,'We do not stop playing because we are old; we grow old because we stop playing. There are only four secrets to staying young, being happy, and achieving success. You have to laugh and find humor every day. You've got to have a dream. When you lose your dreams, you die. We have so many people walking around who are dead and don't even know it! There is a huge difference between growing older and growing up. If you are nineteen years old and lie in bed for one full year and don't do one productive thing, you will turn twenty
years old. If I am eighty-seven years old and stay in bed for a year and never do anything I will turn eighty-eight.
Anybody can grow older. That doesn't take any talent or ability. The idea is to grow up by always finding opportunity in change. Have no regrets. The elderly usually don't have regrets for what we did, but rather for things we did not do. The only people who fear death are those with regrets.' She concluded her speech by courageously singing 'The Rose.'

She challenged each of us to study the
lyrics and live them out in our daily lives. At the year's end Rose finished the college degree she had begun all those years ago. One week after graduation Rose died peacefully in her sleep. Over two thousand college students attended her funeral in tribute to the wonderful woman who taught by example that it's never too late to be all you can possibly be.

When you finish reading this, please send this peaceful word of advice to
your friends and family, they'll really enjoy it!

These words have been passed along in
loving memory of ROSE.

REMEMBER, GROWING OLDER IS MANDATORY.
GROWING UP IS OPTIONAL. We make a
Living by what we get. We make a Life by what we give.

God promises a safe landing, not a calm
passage.

If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it

Mrs, Whitewater, Surely a pleasure ALWAYS to see you, my, my.. you have been rearranging your quaint teahouse. Love the warm colors, oranges, yellows and reds.. Vibrancy and engerizing... matched with green leafy palms, Bonsai trees and ferns...NOT to mention the water fountains and goldfish pond in the middle of the room. Soooo relaxing and calming, as we savor the exotic tea blends that are offered. Moist tidbits of tea sandwiches, scones with jam and clotted cream. Fashionable desserts to satisfy your inner child, delightful to appease your eyes. The company of all who also enjoy moments of tranquillity, amongst the healing powers of LOVE. Yes, now I am ready to order... a bit of Happiness with every sip and bite in a most peaceful setting.. SPREAD THE LOVE ROCKERS!!!
