I refuse to ďact my ageĒ. I refuse to "grow up". I insist that "age" must not be a consideration as I plan my days, weeks and years. I will do everything that I can do to be physically fit and healthy. I do not plan on sitting in a rocky chair the rest of my life. God gave me my life to do everything that He wants me to do and that includes living an active life. Life is good. Life is fun. I am looking forward to new experiences and adventures.
I will play with my grandchildren. My son was telling them yesterday how I would chase them and their friends around the house with a squirt bottle. It is fun to be young and I still am. I will have water fights with my grandchildren, blow bubbles, eat snow cones, go on hikes. We will enjoy life together and live with enthusiasm. We will make many beautiful memories. And someday when others have given up, I will still be happily enjoying the advantages of a life well spent.
