It’s All True

I’m a scoffer. And to all of you whom I scoffed at, I apologize. I’m sorry. Because it’s all true. Everything you said. All of it.

Enjoy high school, it’ll fly by. True.

Friends come and go, but sisters are forever. So be nice! True.

Have a good time in college. You’ll be done before you know it. True.

You should know how to change a tire. True.

Boys are dumb. It’s not the end of the world! Don’t worry, someday you’ll find Mr. Right. True.

20 isn’t old. Ha! True.

Home ownership is a lot of work. True.

30 isn’t old. True.

Weight is just harder to drop the older you get! True.

Savor her while she’s little, she’ll be a toddler soon. True.

Babies are tougher than you think. True.

Don’t worry! She’ll talk. True.

I promise. You will sleep through the night again, someday. True.

You think one is hard, just wait till you have two! True.

What else is true?

40 isn’t old? They’ll be teenagers before I know it? You think babies are hard, just wait…?  Four is no worse than three? No one goes to kindergarten in diapers? PLEASE tell me that’s the truth…

Or how about what I heard working in a nursing home:

I was young once too, you know…

85 years gone…in the blink of an eye…

You’re so skinny and have great teeth. Enjoy those while they last…

Some day you’ll be alone, so treasure him now…

Maybe I should start doing a little more believing and a little less scoffing…

    love this This reminded me of something my grandmother always told me: take care of your feet because they will take care of you when you’re old. So, before I get too old I am trying to take care of my feet 🙂
