Trying to find time to do anything when you are living in the exhausting years of your eighties is tough. Ordinary tasks tire you out, and you need that afternoon nap. But after it’s over, you don’t feel refreshed. What are you going to do?
But I will say this: I do enjoy writing this. If I could only find the money and the time to do good deeds, I wouldn’t mind. Everybody likes to feel needed. But we make do, as they say. That’s my calling in life. Family’s raised, and the challenge now is to keep the brain from shrinking into dementia.
There are still some things to do, like remind people to not give up, but to stay on the straight and narrow. I don’t think that’s a myth. I once wrote a book to keep a young lady from thinking the essentials are myths (Evolution and the Bible). I don’t know if she read it. The things we miss in life!
