"When I'm 64!"
Tuesday, April 08, 2014
Yes, as of March 25, I am two years beyond the famous tune. 66 years old! In my mind's eye, I still look like I did at 30. Then I walk past a mirror and reality hits me right in the face--LITERALLY!
Who is that old, and yes, overweight, person looking back at me? I no longer have a gall bladder, and both my knees are fakes. I have arthritis, Type 2 diabetes and HBP. My once luxurious hair is thinning out on top and I can no longer kneel, run or jump.
Other side of the coin: I can't believe I'm 66 years old! I have already lived 2 years longer than my mother did. I have 3 wonderful children, 7 fantastic grandchildren, a loving husband, a 'close' sister, a dog and a cat. we own our own home and the cars are paid for. I am so blessed to have the Lord who gave us a wonderful Savior Jesus Christ. The Lord has blessed me with talents also. I have been using my musical talent in the church for my whole life--starting in Junior Choir when I was 8 and continuing thru a music degree and choir director at our church for 44 years. I look back on a wonderful "Beaver Cleaver" childhood and am so grateful for my wonderful parents (Thanks Mom and Dad-I miss you so much).
so, here I am 66 years old! Older, wiser, heavier, and blessed by God and glad to be His child!
