  • Thank you all for your words of encouragement. I would have replied sooner but I couldn't find my glasses to read them :0)

  • Amen Sister! Let's hear it for the mature man! How about we substitute Chocolate for dessert? All this is just two days from my 72nd Birth Day. I may be on the other side of one hill but I am climbing hard up the next one. I have noticed that life consists of peaks and valleys. I can see another peak in view. Life just gets better! Bring it On!

  • Penny - thanks for the wonderful reminder that is is OK, actually kinda great, being old. I enjoyed the reminders of just how blessed my life has been and still is. Having the support of you and so many talented people is just one more blessing. Cheers to wrinkles, giggles and hot fudge sundaes.
  • I like this one very much. Except the female part of it I can totally relate.

    Positive Aging

    Here's a little something I received recently from a friend. For those of us who are on the "other side of the hill" the message will ring very true. And if you're one of the young ones in our group, well. . . you might just like it too.

    Old Age, I’ve decided, is a gift.

    I am now, probably for the first time in my life, the person I have always wanted to be.
    But, I'm not talking about body!
    I sometimes despair over my body, the wrinkles, the baggy eyes,and the sagging butt. And often I am taken aback by that old person who lives in my mirror (and looks like my mother), but I don't agonize over those things for long.

    I would never trade my amazing friends, my wonderful life, or my loving family for less gray hair or a flatter belly. As I've aged, I've become more kind to myself, and less critical of myself. I've become my own friend.

    I don't chide myself for eating that extra cookie, or for not making my bed, or for buying that silly cement gecko that I didn't need, but looks so great on my patio. I am entitled to a treat, to be messy, to be extravagant.

    I have seen too many dear friends leave this world too soon; before they understood the great freedom that comes with aging. Whose business is it if I choose to read or play on the computer until 4 AM and sleep until noon?

    I will dance with myself to those wonderful tunes of the 60 & 70's, and if I, at the same time, wish to weep over a lost love... I will.

    I will walk the beach in a swim suit that is stretched over a bulging body, and will dive into the waves with abandon if I choose to, despite the pitying glances from the jet set. They, too, will get old.

    I know I am sometimes forgetful. But there again, some of life that is just as well forgotten.
    And I eventually remember the important things.

    Sure, over the years my heart has been broken. How can your heart not break when you lose a loved one, or when a child suffers, or even when somebody's beloved pet gets hit by a car? But broken hearts are what give us strength and understanding and compassion. A heart never broken is pristine and sterile and will never know the joy of being imperfect.

    I am so blessed to have lived long enough to have my hair turning gray and to have my youthful laughs be forever etched into deep grooves on my face. So many have never laughed, and so many have died before their hair could turn silver.

    As you get older, it is easier to be positive. You care less about what other people think. I don't question myself anymore. I've even earned the right to be wrong.

    So, to answer your question, I like being old. It has set me free. I like the person I have become. I am not going to live forever, but while I am still here, I will not waste time lamenting
    what could have been, or worrying about what will be.

    And I shall eat dessert every single day… if I feel like it.
