thought, resolutions, those cowboys

the thought of the week from the alzheimers weekly newsletter

if we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most
to us
we find it is those who have chose to share our pain and touch our
wounds with a warm and tender hand

to my wife she

you know you have to make resolutions every year
most people make ones then dont keep them
i took a different approach
i made resolutions this year
that i was already doing anyway
well most of them anyway

dont smoke-dont anyway stopped 35 years ago
dont drink too much-never do but do drink a glass of wine a day
dont overeat-dont usually but i did on thanksgiving and christmas

do exercise every day-may be part of the secret to longevity
do eat correctly-may be the other part of the secret to longevity

be happy-be happy and youll live longer
do make people laugh occasionally-think i do with this blog sometimes
do travel more-i could be on limited cognitive time so have to clear
my bucket list
do visit family and friends-my siblings and friends are aging and our time
is slowly dimming away-dont look back later and say i wish i had

do preach the gospel of alzheimers-do this some with this blog
answer questions a lot about it on face book, emails, phone calls,
and in private conversations
do give more talks on alzheimers this year-have some planned and
hope to do more-contact me if your group would like a talk on
do visit the caretakers and communicate with the caretakers
do stay mentally active as you get older-i do this blog every day,
read a lot and read the newspaper daily
do get restful sleep-damn donepezil (aricept) interferes with that
do give back-i start my first habitat for humanity house this month
and hope to continue to spread the word on organic green living
and alzheimers disease

do those things that make you peaceful with yourself

have a good year and keep those resolutions

not the dallas ones they are done for for the year
damn them
jerry just sell them and get out of the way

but the oklahoma state cowboys
they may be the best team in the country
could they have been champs if that plane crash not happened

wouldnt it be a great game to see the osu cowboys play
the winner of the lsu-alababama game

we would get a final answer
although in oklahoma that question has already been answered
