It’s true. A wave struck me down. My hat fell off my head and as I went to catch it in the surf I fell again. This time I couldn’t get up. I had one knee raised but I didn’t have the strength to lift myself up. If I weren’t so pathetic I would have laughed but I instantly felt the danger I was in. My age is catching up to me and its not funny.

We think we have all the time in the world to do what we want to do and I’m realizing, we don’t. Thankfully my husband appeared and I was able to get his attention. He reached out to me and was able to lift me to safety. If not, I would have had to wait for a passer-by to help me. Not a good position to be in.

live your age. Face up to the reality. The time to do something is now. Not later.
