Senior Citizens
Written May 2017

Judge Rembert
Guest Columnist


All people over 65 are senior citizens...
All senior citizens have stories...
Stories that have formed them into who they are today...
Some stories are good...
Some are bad...
Some are hidden...
Some are bragged about...
Some are loud and some are quiet...

But senior citizens are what they are...
They all do things for different reasons...
Often many hours are spent alone...
Often by choice...
But often not by choice...

Every now and then someone enters the picture...
Someone who is a ray of sunshine...
Someone who is fun to talk to...
Someone who brings smiles and laughter...
Someone who cares about the world...
Not just themselves...
Someone who still studies and wonders...
Someone who remembers the past...
And wonders about the future...
Someone who is open to the future...
And wonders about what it brings...

These folks are a blessing to all they touch...
They open doors of cheer...
They add to each life they encounter...
They are the rays of light that hit...
Hit the dark spots in our lives...
They are needed and appreciated...

Welcome them into your life...
Nothing in life is guaranteed...
God and God alone knows the plan...
Welcome the good and thank God...
Thank Him for the seniors in your life...
If you aren't one...you will be....

---More About Judge Rembert: WWII made Judge an only child when her half-brother was killed in the war. She lived in a tiny town in South Carolina until she was eight and her Mother went to work. She was sent to a boarding school in Belmont, N.C. From that time on she has lived back and forth in the two Carolinas. They are both home. She was born dyslexic and did not know what the problem was or that it had a name until she was about 45. She was unable to spell so she never put words on paper until she was 65 and had a computer with spell check. She comes from a long line of story tellers and a Mother that taught her much by telling stories. Stories about people and how they faced life and how they dealt with problems. If you read what she writes you may hear her Mother and her Grandmother talking to her. She is thrilled to know that anyone reads her words and finds them interesting. Oh, she is 75 now and makes her home in Maiden, N.C. If you like Judge’s writings or would like to comment on them let her know by emailing judgerembert@bellsouth.net.
