Enjoy Yourself...It's Later Than You Think

Enjoy Yourself... It's Later Than You Think
by Sylvia Mandelbaum

I'm doing okay for my age. I stopped thinking because G-d is running the world his way and I don't want to interfer with G-d.
G-d is Eternal. And G-d will do what's right. G-d has the last word.

This is a very nice place for elderly people. They never used to consider elderly people part of their world. But now they are treated with respect. The world has taken on a different attitude - we are not the cast-offs anymore.

I want to enjoy the rest of my life. Time marches on. You don't realize how much time you lose with dillydallying and sillysallying.

Enjoy yourself - it's later than you think
Enjoy yourself - it's later than you think
Enjoy yourself - it's later than you think

It's later than you think.

I think it's a beautiful song.

Sylvia, you are right that G-d is running the world His way. but on the other hand, He expects us to do "tikun olam" as best as we can. G-d helps those who help themselves! senior citizens certainly should be treated with respect, because they have experience and wisdom. and each person should contribute in whatever they do best - younger people using their energy to do things, and senior citizens using their wisdom to advise the younger people - a true partnership.
