Timing

Judge Rembert
Guest Columnist


Life is all about timing...
Timing is not always something...
Something we can manage...
No matter how hard we try...

If you ask folks...
Ask them how they got were they are...
Often they will answer...
“The time was right”...
But often they will answer...
“I was just at the right place
at the right time”
But sometimes we are...
At the wrong place at the wrong time...

Often we just have to play...
Play the cards we are dealt...
No matter the cards...
You can win...
Sometimes it takes hard work...
Hard work can often change...
Change everything...

2022 seems to have missed the mark...
So many people are needed to work...
Hiring signs are everywhere you look...
Businesses everywhere are slowed down...
People say it is too easy to live for free...

WHERE IS THIS GOING ?????

There really is no free life...
The day will come when the bill arrives...
Free everything has a bill...
The bill is out there...
It will arrive unannounced...

Today’s Old Citizens may be dead when it arrives...
But the young people who are receiving...
Receiving free whatever...
They will get the bill when...
When they are older...
Life, no one’s life, is free...

No work history will equal no retirement...
No work history will equal no social security...
No work history will be a hole in their lives...

Are we teaching our children not to work...
Are we teaching our children, free is free...
Who allowed 2022 to be the free way...
Who will help them pay this bill...

NOT THE OLD PEOPLE...
We will be gone when they get this bill...
We will be gone when they cry for more free...
Cry and discover...

Discover that we did not do them a favor...
We left them with the bill...
What will they leave their kids ?????

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 she now makes her home in Aiken, S.C. If you like Judge’s writings or would like to comment on them let her know by emailing judgerembert@bellsouth.net.
