GETTIN OLD......

One of my sisters and I were talking the other day about getting older.

I told her that it was interesting but that I had never really thought about getting old!

Now, I look in the mirror and see flashes of my Mother...MY MOTHER!!!!

Where has the time gone?

What happened and why so fast?

I still feel good and look pretty good but the signs of aging are gaining on me.

I see ripples of skin when I hold my arms up!

I see bigger veins and brown spots appearing on my hands and legs.

In other words....

I am finally comfortable in my skin.

I am finally comfortable with who I am.

I am finally comfortable saying... No!

I am finally comfortable.

I just pray for good health and a long life to enjoy the freedom that I have found in aging.

Gettin old ain't for sissies but it sure beats the alternative.
