Lessons Learned

Count your garden by the flowers,
Never by the leaves that fall
Count your days by golden hours,
Don't remember clouds at all . . .
Count your nights by stars, not shadows,
Count your life with smiles, not tears.
And all throughout your lifetime,
Count your age by friends, not years.

  1. Oh, I just love this poem...I adore the last line...
    and, I've always thought you were only as old as you feel. Our attitudes play a hugh part in the aging process...
    have a happy and blessed day...
