To know how to grow old is the master work of wisdom, and one of the most difficult chapters in the great art of living.
Plans change and we change with them. When this house was purchased I had planed to live here the rest of my life. It is paid for so I have no house payment to pay. But now I’m planning to rent a place that will require a monthly payment be made.
For me, it seems the easiest way to go. I’m getting older and maintenance and up keep of a home can be expensive and a lot of work. So far I’ve been able to do that, but I’m trying to plan for the future. This house has 3 floors and I travel 2 sets of stairs many times daily. Well the attic is a fourth floor, but I don’t need to go there on a daily basis. I would like a home that is on one floor.
I haven’t been out looking much at all for a new place yet but have found a few that will do and I was assured that they always have units available.
Never lose sight of the fact that old age needs so little but needs that little so much.
The slow and easy life had become part of my nature until it became necessary to sell this place. I still move slowly but there hasn’t been an easy day for quite a while now.
I try to remember that: Nothing lasts forever and this too shall pass !
Just about the time we think things are working out just fine, things change it seems. That is life…ever changing.
Beginnings are sudden, but also insidious. They creep up on you sideways, they keep to the shadows, they lurk unrecognized. Then, later, they spring.
