"You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream."

C. S. Lewis


I began going to a new church about 3 weeks ago and was talking to one of the ladies after Mass. There were 3 of us chatting and she mentioned with a smile that she was 79. I thought it was a joke. She didn't look a day over 60. A bit later I was speaking to her alone and had to ask her if she was just joking, I didn't think there was any way she was speaking seriously. She confirmed that she was a very youthful 79!!! She's FULLY engaged in life and has the pedal to the metal. No rocking chair for her!! So for today, personally speaking, this quote has a lot of meaning. She was an inspiration. There are days when I'm running on fumes and feel 10 years older than I am. Now I'll just think of her when I'm running out of gas and it'll get me going again. The quote also applies to those of us here at SP who are in the, ahem...'mature' category!! Sometimes we think we're too old for this or that, but really, we aren't. We can just always set new goals and dream big - even if we've been around the block more than a few times!!

    Love this quote, when I started on SP I felt like I was 80 and now I feel better than I did at 30. My DD watches me sometimes as I Zumba and says "you are not doing that the same as the woman." I say "if you want to do it with me you can but till you do don't score me against a 20 year old :)!!!"
