Well now I start again. What will this step in life bring?
Funny I don’t feel any different today then I did two days ago. I have the same little aches and pains not any stronger or weaker. I still feel the need to grit my teeth to relieve the stress that seems to live in my mind constantly. But I also feel the need to smile at how well I’m doing in this new stage of my life. In my 20s I always thought I would die at 40. I could not even picture growing old. Now I have lived over twice that age I sit and wonder what life has in store for me. I know I have forgotten more than I ever thought I would know but wonderful things seem to float in to make me smile and be glad that I have lived them.
Yesterday Cindy came up to spend a few hours with me on my birthday. Actually she came to beat my butt at rummy and she did soundly. She then suggested that we pull out the new coloring books and pencils to start my first venture into old lady relives a youngster’s thing. So here is another activity to take up time.
Last night as I let Brandy out one more time before we went to bed the moon caught my eye.
The clouds let it through for a change so I had to try to capture it.
Well the forecast for this afternoon is for snow again and possibly quite a bit so I’m going to get out of my nightie and into getting dressed clothes so I can get to the grocery store before it starts.
I want to thank every one for the wonderful words I have received. It makes getting old a comforting feeling.
For those of you that are under the weather do feel better and for others enjoy the time because it makes for great memories later on.
