I'll be having a birthday in a few weeks and I wonder as I age if the activities that I have been doing are age appropriate. I wonder if I'm acting my age and how does a person act their age? I wonder if people laugh at me behind my back when I ride our razor scooter or climb to the top of the playground ropes with Joseph. (I also have tea parties and cookies with Rose, but it's generally in the kitchen so I have no spectators.) How long should old women wear their hair and are my skirts are too short for my age. Can I still wear shorts ? I'm not after all pretending or trying to be something that I'm not. I wouldn't want to be young again for anything. I'm a lot smarter than I was and I'm a much kinder person now. Heck ,I'm not even the same person I was in my 20's and 30's thanks to the handiwork of God.( I got his backhand - many times ;). Raising 8 babies was hard work and I enjoy having a bit of time to myself now. I think it's kind of phony to color my hair but my maintenance man prefers for it to be brown. I wonder if I'm too old to use the words from the Urban dictionary, or to listen to Aerosmith or Justin Timberlake? So much to ponder, but wait I just noticed that it's all about me again.
I better stop it and pray for somebody else. So many people to pray for and so little time.
