Tonight I was going to jump on my counter to get something off a high shelf….
Tonight I was trying to read something from my phone….
I quickly remembered it is not what it used to be….(can’t forget to put my reader’s on my head so they are always with me)
Tonight I was going to quick run upstairs and I felt the pain of my Achilles tendon….
I quickly remembered it is not what it used to be….(need to remember to take my Motrin regularly)
But then I remember how my heart is more tender, my body more healthy and my skin more comfortable to live in….
I quickly remember how good life is…
I am turning 43 this weekend and although there are certainly places I feel my age, there are many more where I feel aging has improved the person I am today. I am thankful for the experiences and people in my teens, 20’s and 30’s who have helped to shape my 40’s. I look forward to all life has for me in the days, weeks, months and years ahead. I believe that God will honor the desires of my heart and show me great and wonderful things….
And, I am quite proud of that fact that I have recently taken up skipping and jumping rope again!
