Well, today was the day that I turned 62! Yikes, I cannot believe it. The years seem to have flown by, it seems like yesterday I was only 10 and if it were not for the aches of arthritis I would say I still feel 10! I remember my mother telling me that after you reach the age of 25 the days and years zoom away, I believe it is true.
I will not look at the number of my age but will count all the things I am able to do. I can still push a lawn mower to mow almost an acre of grass, I still can cut down trees and make gardens. I am able to care for my home from top to bottom, I can still sew and make my dolls and crafts. I can still walk around the parks at Walt Disney World along with my young sons and their families. I can drive from central NJ to VT in a day, over 7 1/2 hours from my house to where we go. I will count my blessings and they are many. I can enjoy all the wonderful gifts that God has given me.
Today I celebrated with my grandsons just enjoying spending time with them.
I have worked outside the home for many years as a legal assistant and also a medical transcriber, in a few months I will reap my reward of getting my first social security check! Growing old may have its downside, but for me I am still looking up!
Sixty-two and still counting. . .Happy Birthday to ME!
