IT’S ALL IN A LIFETIME

———–record to use——–

By Harvey Tobkes

It seems like yesterday that I was young, just married and embarking on my new life with Anita. And yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and I wonder where all the years went.

I have glimpses of how it was back then and of all my hopes and dreams for the future. But now the winter of my life has arrived… and it catches me by surprise. How did I get here so fast? Where did the years go and where did my babies go? And where did my youth go?

I well remember…seeing older people through the years and thinking that it will be decades before I start looking like them. I could not fathom or imagine fully what it would be like to look ancient. But the clock keeps ticking and I realize that old face in the mirror is mine. My friends are long-time retirees; they move slowly, take a daily regimen of pills, and it’s easy to see that time has taken its toll on their bodies and faces.

Now, I have entered into a new time of my life, unprepared for the aches and pains and the loss of strength and ability to go and do things that I wish I had done but never did!

Alhough the downside of my life has come, that famed philosopher, Yogi Berra, summed it all up by saying, “It ain’t over till it’s over.” Yes, I have regrets! There are things I wish I hadn’t done, things I should have done, but indeed, there are many things I’m happy to have done. It’s all in a lifetime….

You have no promise that you will see all the seasons of your life, so live for today and say all the endearing things that you want your loved ones to remember, and hope that they appreciate and love you for all the things that you have done for them in all the years past!

The way you live your life is your gift to the living after you are gone. So, make yours a fantastic life and remember Yogi’s words…

P.S. So sorry to say, Yogi, your words came true at the end of your wonderful life. You enriched the game of baseball, you were loved by millions of people, and a friend to all…yes, it’s over, but you are not forgotten. R.I.P.

I WANT TO BE SIX AGAIN

A boy with a dog

I want to go to McDonald’s and think it’s the best place in the world to eat.

I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle and make waves with rocks.

I want to play kickball during recess and stay up on Christmas Eve waiting to hear Santa and Rudolph on the roof.

I long for the days when life was simple. When all you knew were your colors, the addition tables, and simple nursery rhymes, but it didn’t bother you, because you didn’t know what you didn’t know, and you didn’t care.

I want to go to school and have snack time, recess, gym and field trips.

I want to think that everyone, including myself, will live forever, because I don’t know the concept of death.

I want television to be something I watch for fun, not something used for escape from the things I should be doing.

I want to be six again.
