Only now, at almost seventy-eight,
am I getting it. It’s not that I didn’t
have the information before.
I knew exercise and healthy eating
were good for you. Everyone knows that.
But now I’m bone tired.
Energy is what I need:
energy to do what I love,
energy to be there for the people I love,
energy to play and have fun.
Energy is what I don’t have.
Bingo! Lights flashing!
Energy comes from healthy eating.
Energy comes from exercise.
Connection made! And just in time!
