THIRTEEN REASONS GETTING OLDER ISN'T
TOO BAD....or is it???
by flip flop floozie

  1. I can go to Goody's on their special "Senior Citizen's Day" and get a discount!
  2. I am now a Senior once again...Once before in high school I lived to just become a Senior and now I have arrived again!!
  3. I get into the movies cheaper!!
  4. I am now happy with myself!!
  5. I am a grandmother of seven beautiful grandchildren!! How blessed can one woman be!!
  6. I have been married to the same great man for all these wonderful years!!
  7. Kroger gives we "Senior Citizens" a discount too!!
  8. We can park in the Senior Citizens parking spaces at church now too!!
  9. I thought there would be more respect for my age but unfortunately I am NOT seeing that!!
  10. I get to be at home (so far)!!
  11. I volunteer when needed and help out with my grandchildren when I can.
  12. I get to go to bible studies and learn more about my savior and how applicable our bible is for today!!
  13. Getting older isn't so bad...it just means that God has let me live a little longer and hopefullyI have learned a little more that I can share with those that are younger.
"AGING GRACEFULLY MEANS LIVING LONG ENOUGH TO MAKE A JOKE OF THE THINGS THAT WERE ONCE BREAKING YOUR HEART!!"

so basically what you're telling me is that we'll save a lot more money when we're "senior citizens?" LOL.

I think I've caught up reading your post's, they have a way of cheering me up. I love it when Flip Flop has a great day. :-)
I don't have time for much of a comment because I have to go find all of my sheets and fold them the RIGHT way. Thanks for the lesson.

I have only about 4 years before I can claim to be a senior citizen, two close friends have seniors cards and save heaps on meals on trains...being a senior is a great achievment...a gift from God
