Getting Old is Not For Sissy's

When I was a child I thought that 40 sounded so old. It was scary thinking that I would ever be that old and at the same time thinking that was so far off. Now, today, I have surpassed that, I am staring at 53 in a few months and I look back and wonder, where did all the time go?


I remember in my teens thinking that my mom was so old and wondering how she could have gotten there and not known a thing. You know what I mean, when you are a teen mom's don't know anything.

In my mid to late twenty's I said that I did not mind getting old, I just did not want to look it. I wanted to have fresh smooth looking skin, no gray hair and be just as thin as I was the day I graduated from school.

So what is my thinking today, 40 is not that old. Even 53 is not that old, in my mind anyway. My mom was not that old and I think she was smarter than I gave her credit for. One reason is, I have been there as the mom, I was the one my children looked at thinking I was old and I knew nothing. Things change as we grow older. As for not looking old, and having smooth skin, I show very little wrinkles, I was blessed with good skin. As for gray hair, I started showing gray in my late twenty's. That comment about not looking old was because I started to dye my hair then to cover the "old". Then there is the thin, wow, that sure went the wrong way. Now weight and the issues with it is a whole series of posting. Thought I would try to write a book about all this but.....I figure by the time I get there, I will be to OLD to do it!
