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.
