Bank Account


> A 92-year-old, petite, well-poised and proud man, who is fully
>> dressed each morning by eight o'clock, with his hair fashionably
>> coifed and shaved perfectly, even though he is legally blind, moved
>> to a nursing home today. His wife of 70 years recently passed away,
>> making the move necessary. After many hours of waiting patiently in
>> the lobby of the nursing home, he smiled sweetly when told his room
>> was ready.
>>
>>
>> As he maneuvered his walker to the elevator, I provided a visual
>> description of his tiny room, including the eyelet sheets that had
>> been hung on his window.
>>
>>
>> "I love it," he stated with the enthusiasm of an eight-year-old
>> having just been presented with a new puppy.
>>
>>
>>
>> "Mr. Jones, you haven't seen the room; just wait."
>>
>> "That doesn't have anything to do with it," he replied.
>>
>>
>> "Happiness is something you decide on ahead of time. Whether I like
>> my room or not doesn't depend on how the furniture is arranged ...
>> it's how I arrange my mind. I already decided to love it. "It's a
>> decision I make every morning when I wake up. I have a choice; I can
>> spend the day in bed recounting the difficulty I have with the parts
>> of my body that no longer work, or get out of bed and be thankful for

>> the ones that do.
>>
>> Each day is a gift, and as long as my eyes open, I'll focus on the
>> new day and all the happy memories I've stored away. Just for this
>> time in my life.
>>
>> Old age is like a bank account. You withdraw from what you've put in.
>>
>> So, my advice to you would be to deposit a lot of happiness in the
>> bank account of memories! Thank you for your part in filling my
>> Memory bank. I am still depositing." Remember the five simple rules
>> to be happy:
>>
>> 1. Free your heart from hatred.
>> 2. Free your mind from worries.
>> 3. Live simply.
>> 4. Give more.
>> 5. Expect less.
