And God Looked Down

Thanks to Millie Broberg for the following little tidbit!! This is very true, and here is a preview for those of you who are not seniors…yet!!

Most seniors never get enough exercise. So in his wisdom God decreed that seniors would become forgetful so they would have to search for their glasses, keys and other things misplaced and do some walking. And God looked down and saw that it was good.

Then God saw there was yet another need. So God in his wisdom made seniors lose coordination so that they would drop things which would require them to bend and reach and stretch. And God looked down and saw that it was good.

Then God considered the functioning of seniors’ bladders and decided that in his wisdom there might be calls of nature more frequently requiring more trips to the relief station and that would burn calories. God looked down and saw that it was good.

Seniors were obliged to exercise more from these senior shortcomings and did become more active as a result. So if you find you are required to get up and down more as you age, remember it’s God’s will and in your best interest even though you mutter under your breath.
