THE WISDOM OF AGE

We are almost them; the older generation

We are becoming the matriarchs, the sages

We are getting wrinkles and cranky backs

We are seeing our spouses die

We are seeing our kids have kids

We are wondering how we will live

We are wondering how we will die

We are considering our lives

We are looking back but our memories are fading

We are thinking about how we will be remembered

We are seeing jowls and wobbly legs

We are moving into smaller places

We are seeing with fading eyes

We are realizing the preciousness of life

We are counting every blessing

We are smiling at the small things

We are enjoying every sunny day

We love the sound of laughter

We are happy to be loved.

      Thank you so much, Teresa, for your kind words. Sometimes life gets so hard that it’s tough to find those things to appreciate. It is a work in progress.
