Wow! Who would have thought we would be this old! I keep thinking that with age comes wisdom, does it? Growing older has perks but mostly it is harder. Slowing down every year gets more noticeable. Thoughts of retirement are coming more every day. I didn’t want to grow up, really. When I talk about what I want to be when I grow up, I still don’t know. I do know that I get more tolerable of some things and less tolerable of others – meaning I just really don’t want any involvement in it.
Yes, AGE is a number, but so is the temperature and we certainly notice that change! I still think I am younger than I really am. It is strange to compare where I am as to where my parents were at the same Age.
As I reflect on all this, I see the changes in others. We are now taking care of parents, having grandchildren, preparing for retirement, and putting our houses in order.
Age has a derogatory meaning for some and excitement for others. It can mean aches and pains or the chance to do what we always wanted to do!
I am a half glass full kind of person and hope to be able to do what I want – with the hubby! Maybe it’s because of what I said earlier – Age is just a number to me!
