My daughter came walking in one day all perky and lively and stopped dead in her tracks, as I was busy removing my daily mask with makeup cleaner.
“O, dear mom do I need to get the iron?”
Insensitive I know but as she takes to her father they lack the ability to be sensitive in situations and usually sits their food in it before they can stop themselves. But from the mouth of the baby you will hear the truth. Until then I haven’t noticed how old I was getting, as I still feel twenty-one.
I started to think about plastic surgery and all that other medical miracles out there, but that soon went out of the window after I watched DR 90102. I am not just a piece of meat; I am a human being and still full of life even if my body does not agree with me each day. Besides, this is the body that God gave me and this is the body I will die in just as it is.
But I can’t help but smile at all the young woman walking by me and yes even my own daughter as I have lived my life, made mistakes and had many happy moments. Every wrinkle, line or grey hear is a memory good or bad it is still part of my life and part of who I am.
Time is untouchable, you cannot turn it back or fast forward it, you have to live the moment you are in and once it is gone you can never have it back. So make the best of what you have as the twilight year’s creep upon you in your sleep.
