Getting Old

i love my daily calendar from “the onion”. the above pic will make me laugh/smile all day

after 50, life changes. we could no longer do what we did in our mid 20s. but i LIKE getting older! we view the world differently because we have experienced many things: loss, heartbreak, peace through solitude, healing, the powerful mystery of God…

graces at this age are different too. in our better moments, we can see the utter passing nature of things; of life. this helps us be thankful for the present moment and what we do have and the person that i am: with all my weaknesses and imperfections. it helps us calm the inevitable fears that come with life. the Spirit blesses us differently.

i pray that the crosses of getting older are not too heavy and that we all have the blessing to age gracefully
