Losing One’s Mind

They tell you that you’ll lose your mind when you get older.  What they don’t tell you is that you won’t miss it very much.

I remember someone who was having a few memory issues and we were a bit concerned about her.  Then one day she told us that as she was getting older she, herself, had noticed that she was having a bit of difficulty remembering things from time to time but all that was in the past because she was now no longer having any problem with forgetting anything.

We, her friends and family, were all looking askance at each other as she paused.  Then she said, “At least, that is, I no longer remember forgetting things.”  Then she laughed wholeheartedly, thanking us for being concerned about her and for sticking by her side.
