As Young As






Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years. 
We grow old by deserting our ideals.....
You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; 
as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; 
as young as your hope, as old as your despair.
                                            Samuel Ullman



So many of you left wonderfully encouraging comments regarding my Mother's wedding, thank you. Maybe the newly married couple really are younger than their 72 and 84 years would suggest.    :)

Wspaniałe słowa Samuela Ullman, tak się właśnie powinno żyć. Mak jest tego dowodem, jest młody, ale wygląda jak stary pomarszczony. Pozdrawiam.
Great words of Samuel Ullman, so it should live. Mak is proof of that, he is young, but it looks like an old wrinkled. Yours.

I missed that post because I don't get on the computer during the weekend. But I went and looked and she's so sweet! Hope they have a very happy marriage.

The light in your bloom is really something!

Beautiful poem and the light on the Papaver is just wonderful. Had missed last post, so I say congratulations with your mother's wedding. It is nice when you find somebody to share your life with, also at that age.
