This is a beautiful one - read and enjoy

The 92-year-old, petite, well-poised and proud lady, who is fully dressed each morning by eight o'clock, with her hair fashionably coiffed and makeup perfectly applied,  even though she is legally blind, moved to a nursing  home today.

Her husband of 70  years recently passed away, making the move necessary. After many hours of  waiting patiently in the lobby of the nursing home, she  smiled sweetly when told her room was ready.

As she manoeuvred her  walker to the elevator, I provided a visual  description of her tiny room, including the eyelet sheets that had been hung on her  window.

"I love it," she stated  with the enthusiasm of an eight-year-old having just  been presented with a new puppy.

"Mrs.. Jones, you haven't seen the room . just wait."

"That doesn't have anything to do with it," she  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.
