Fill Your LIfe With Love

To my wonderful readers. Each year, as Valentine day approaches, I can think of no better words to share with you than those contained in a message that was sent to me by my friend and ardent Blog reader, Joan Vieweger. Joan is a principal of Choclatique who, along with her food genius partner Ed Engoron, run one of if not the world’s greatest creators of specialty chocolates.

While we do not know who wrote it, it is certainly a powerful message and does not need any commentary from me other than to wish you and those you love a wonderful Valentine’s day filled with Love.

Another year has passed
And we’re all a little older.
Last summer felt hotter
And winter seems much colder.

There was a time not long ago
When life was quite a blast.
Now I fully understand
About ‘Living in the Past’

We used to go to weddings,
Football games and lunches..
Now we go to funeral homes
And after-funeral brunches.

We used to have hangovers,
From parties that were gay.
Now we suffer body aches
And whine the night away.

We used to go out dining,
And couldn’t get our fill.
Now we ask for doggie bags,
Come home and take a pill.

We used to often travel
To places near and far.
Now we get sore asses
From riding in the car.

We used to go to nightclubs
And drink a little booze.
Now we stay home at night
And watch the evening news.

That, my friend is how life is,
And now my tale is told.
So, enjoy each day and live it up…
Before you’re too damned old!
