On the icebox door

Today the movers come to begin the transport of Dad’s things to his new Independent Living apartment.  I pulled this quote that’s been behind a magnet on the icebox door for quite sometime, judging from its yellowed appearance.  For me it is in keeping with the theme of this blog: The Road Ends, but the Journey Continues. Perhaps it’s message will speak to you. Peace, all.

“We are all pilgrims in this life, and as we trek further down the road, we also become philosophers, so as I retire, here are some of my thoughts – God Bless – Gordon R. Darnell, D.D.S.

It’s never too late to have a happy childhood.

Happiness is not a destination – it’s a way of traveling.

Don’t take life too seriously – it’s only temporary.

Life is difficult, Life is not fair, Life is wonderful.

Life is 10% what you make of it, and 90% how you take it.

He who dies with the most expensive toys – still dies.

The world is full of givers and takers – the takers eat better, but the givers sleep better.”
