When I'm old, I want to be cool. I will be like everyone's grandma. Fresh baked goods will be freely offered. Kids (and their parents) will know where to come for food, visits, and a helping hand. I will be strong, healthy, active - able to keep up with the kids. I will freely give cookies, love, and wisdom.
When I'm old, I want to be trusted. The kind of woman people know they can come to for advice. I want to be like Mr. Perryfield in "Letters to God" - besides maybe the grumpy part. I will learn my lessons well and remember them. Those from all generations will be welcome to have a heart-to-heart.
When I'm old, I want to live each day to the fullest. I will love God and people. I'll take risks (only those calculated, of course), and go on adventures. I want to read lots of books, go lots of places, meet lots of people, bake lots of cookies, and touch lots of hearts.
When I'm old, I want to be ready. I want live and to love with no regrets. I know I'm going to Heaven, and I want to take so many people with me. I will love life, and look forward to the day that I'm finally with Him.
When I'm old, I want to leave a legacy. I want to be a city on a hill, a lamp on a stand, even after I've left this Earth. I want to be remembered for my love and my strength and my faith.
So why not start now??
