    I love the human race because we celebrate every year we are closer to death with such happiness. We celebrate life! Celebrate yourself, watch yourself get old and hopefully get wiser. I think this is the gift of age-- to finally know what it meant to live.

    I usually don't want to think about getting old even though I want to get old before I die. I wish to see and play with my grandchildren and great grandchildren before I die. I know that is possible if I can take great care of my life.

    I also try not to think about getting old, and just try to live each day, each year the best I can.

    I'm 38 years of age now but this year I've lost 3 close friends, all around my age so it's certainly made me take notice more and taught me to appreciate what I've got.

    Getting old is something that is denied to many. You should live life and treasure every moment. Time passes quickly and before we know it we are old but it's not a thing.

    I really don't mind getting old. If I could, I would want to live a hundred years. I would want to see how the world is going to be years from now. I would want to see, and meet the next generation, and more generations to come.
