“Today is the oldest you’ve ever been, and the youngest you’ll ever be again.” Eleanor Roosevelt

“Laughter is timeless. Imagination has no age. And dreams are forever.” Walt Disney

    The pictures are beautiful..and so are you Virginia Lea, inside and out…no matter what age…

    • Virginia says:

      Thanks, Carol-Jo, for that nice compliment (when i’m feeling blue will take it out for another look-see!) Another year older, but wiser? (Can hope & pray!) πŸŽ‰πŸ’œπŸŽ‰πŸŽ‚πŸŽ‰

    Those quotes are so reassuring to those of us who might be leaning toward the fourth quarter of their lives.

      Yes, Tim – is it C.S. Lewis who said we’re never too old to dream a new dream? And do something new? πŸŽ‰πŸ§πŸŽ‰πŸŒ·πŸŽ‚πŸŒ·πŸŽ‰

    Well hello there! Your perky images, and pick-me-up quotes are splendid, especially since my birth month is rolling in tomorrow. In today’s world of almost ageless humans, 63 is not old, just older, hopefully wiser, and still frisky. One thing I know for sure, I’m going to hang in there, ’cause I truly believe the best is yet to come. Thanks for sharing!!!

      HaPpY HaPpY Birthday month, Sparkyjen! As years pile on, we can hope we’re getting wiser? And friskier? (even if our knees need a little help here & there.) Blessings & cake, cake, cake!!! πŸŒ·πŸ°πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‚πŸŽ‰πŸ§πŸŒ·

    Not quite at 60 yet, but as well to be prepared! Thanks for the reassuring quotes and beautiful pictures. I’d like to think that all our ages become a part of us, hopefully in a positive way, whatever our chronological age might be. πŸ™‚

    • Virginia says:

      Older & wiser (we can only hope.) My Papa always said it’s not the years that make us old, but the miles (we’ve tread.) But miles make us wiser, too! Blessings! πŸŽ‰ πŸŒ·πŸ˜ŽπŸŒ·πŸŽ‰
