DID YOU KNOW THERE ARE TRUE BENEFITS TO GETTING OLD? I'm serious! And if you don't believe me, then read this list of PROS. Well, okay, in some cases they're not pros -- they're telltale signs...

1. Kidnappers are not very interested in you.

2. In a hostage situation, you are likely to be released first.

3. No one expects you to run -- anywhere!

4. People call at 9 p.m. and ask, "Did I wake you?"

5. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.

6. There is nothing left to learn the hard way.

7. Things you buy won't wear out.

8. You can eat supper at 4 p.m.

9. You can live without, um, 'you know what', but you can't survive without your glasses.

10. You get into heated arguments about pension plans.

11. You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.

12. You quit trying to hold your stomach in no matter who walks into the room.

13. You sing along with elevator music.

14. Your eyes won't get much worse.

15. Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off.

16. Your joints are more accurate meteorologists than the national weather service.

17.. Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them either.

18. Your supply of brain cells is finally down to a manageable size.

And you notice these are all in big print for my "older readers'" convenience. (teehee)

****I love you all! I really do!****

Too funny. And I've always been envious of women with flat stomachs! Mine never gets flat no matter HOW FAR I suck it in. lol

Too funny. I can relate to some of these already!

I love those - another benefit of aging is eventually you'll laugh at all that insignificant stuff! Yeah - insignificant - in light of the eternal blessings we receive in Jesus!
