I have a birthday coming up in May.....I will be 58 years old!!!! I can remember when my Grandmother was 57!!! I thought she was really old! I cannot believe how fast these years have gone....and for you young ones....Im tellin you...its flies! It seems that you go to bed one night in your 30's and wake up in your 50's!
I never was one to have a lot of aches and pain thank goodness but sometimes I have to take a couple advil to get going now. And when I do anything strenuos like moving furniture or something heavy I know Im gonna feel it tomorrow!
I enjoy "quiet time" since I have gotten older..used to be I always had the music on, or the kids were talking and playing or I was talking on the phone. I notice I talk much less on the phone anymore. I am quite content to have some time to just sit and be quiet and think or look at a book or magazine or maybe watch a little tv.
I have always loved babies but now I think they are so cute and funny! I like to just sit and watch them to see what they will do next. And they can wear me out!!! Sometimes when I lay down with mine to take a nap I dont know who goes to sleep first!
And then I think to myself....do I look like an old lady? I mean ~ sometimes I still think Im a kid! And my Mom still calls us the "Kids"~ I am still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up!!! I guess its too late for living in the dorm with the other college kids and being a party animal!
Just want to take a moment to pay tribute to Les ~ the man I was caring for who had cancer. Les was buried today, he died very peacefully surrounded by his loving family. Les ~ you're free of all pain and earthly worries. You will be greatly missed but none of us wanted you to suffer. God bless you Les.
