I want to live as long as I can live healthy and not be a burden to my family.  I want to learn from others & teach others what I’ve learned.  

The number of years doesn’t matter.

 As long as I'm still working out I don't care or if our Lord comes I'm so ready at any age. I just want to be healthy and comfortable at whatever age I live to

I plan...on my 100th birthday party, my senior citizen children will be at my party.  I will stand up on my own two feet, and I will blow out the candles on my wonderful cheesecake with fresh strawberries on top!

One thing I'm especially worried about is MACULAR DEGENERATION...I don't want to be blind.
I'm taking the best eye vitamins supplements I can find and afford ( "Optimal Eyes" - bought on Amazon) and keeping healthy. I was reading how 11 million Americans suffer from Age related Macular degeneration, I don't want to have it attack me.

I want to make a difference, no matter how small. Maybe it's loving and raising kids and grandkids, or loving more deeply, or helping others. I don't choose when I go. But I can choose to be HEALTHY when I go.
I take supplements, eat well, avoid toxic things as much as I can (nearly impossible) , and I try to give all my cares to God and count on His grace.
It's all in His hands. I'm going to live to the fullest.
