I couldn't see the link until I logged in, so for anyone who hasn't logged in and can't see what kate123 linked, here it is:

At youngest we're most pure.
At oldest most experienced.
But at both we're the softest at heart.
Maybe that's why those ages get along the most.
It's somewhere in the middle we lose ourselves.

Very profound!

Louise, excuse my ignorance but what did you mean when you said  "It's usually that or a 'wake up on the other side' thing." I am guessing you mean dying in your sleep??

Anyway, the downsizing thing really makes you wonder what your life was about doesn't it? I have downsized this year and now I am saying 'why did I buy all this "stuff" in the first place. It was all so unnecessary. If only I knew then what I know now, AND, if I could just have the money back I spent for all the "stuff" I would be rich! Now when I go to community living, if that is the case, it will mean downsizing again, and again. Maybe those people buying "Tiny Houses" at onto something smarter!
My great-grandparents lived in a tiny house and had minimal stuff and many children. I Don't think they had to downsize. ;D

Yes, K., that's a saying where I live. And...I had never thought of how rich I would be if I had spent my money more wisely. Whoa!
