We turn not older with years, but newer every day-Emily Dickinson
At any age life is to go on, life is to be applied & from her excellent book: The Gift of Years by Joan Chittister….”We must be up for lives or we will foreclose on it.”
From 18 to 102 ( 102 is the oldest client I ever had) time is a ticking as far as gathering & assembling all that is within you & going full throttle as far as the building up of your life.
Raised on a farm at 17 Vern got tired of milking cows & wanted to see Europe. His wonder lust placed him in General George Patton’s Artillery Command in WW II. After the war Vern earned his BS Degree & later a Masters in Chemistry. He worked as a Chemical Engineer, raised two children, & retired as a rose farmer.
I asked Vern the formula to living long & happy & he said that realizing that everything has a time & a limit. So while your in certain moments enjoy them, learn from them, celebrate them, & then have the maturity to realize when the time is up, to let them go so that you can experience fully the next possibilities to come- Thank You Vern for All of Your Great Lessons of Life-One From the Hart
