Tomorrow I will be 61 years young. I feel better than I have in my whole life even with the little aches and pains that plague us all as we age.
I have a happy family and a DH. I told my husband we are like cheese and sour cream. They are in the same family, are totally different from each other but they go together well! That's us in a nutshell.
I have a sister with whom I am close and we like to do a lot of the same things. We have fun shopping and eating at our favorite tea room. And believe me, we can shop anywhere! Once we spent hours in Lowes--really!
I have good friends too. Some of them are long time friends and some are newer friends. Some live near me and some are far away and I barely get to see them. But we keep in touch thanks to email.
I don't even look too bad. Oh, I am getting wrinkles and jowls but my eyes and bright and my smile is genuine. I don't even look that bad in my driver's license picture. When the guy took it he told me he would take it again if I wanted. I would have done it too if he had a camera that made me look 20 years younger and 20 pounds thinner!! So I just kept the first one because with my luck the second one would have been worse than the first!
Some people bemoan their age but I am trying to embrace it. I hope I have a little more wisdom and a little more understanding and tolerance since I am older. I try to, I really do.
As I sit here typing this, my heart is beating steadily, I have a healthy breakfast in my stomach and I am about to go out with my sis and tomorrow I will make cheese souffle for my family and we will drink raspberry champagne and eat cake.
