Wonderful journaling of your mind through the years, and your internal dialogue was spot on. We can all relate to this gem of a story.

I remember rushing my years when I was a youth. I couldn't wait to be sixteen! It seems a hundred years ago.

You're still young! 70 is not old by any means. I'm in my fifties and I still think I'm 25! LOL.

With God in our corner, we will age gracefully and continue to do all things through Christ who strengthens us.

Great job with this!

God bless~

Wonderful piece.

Getting old ain't fun! Unless you make it fun.

I felt your wrestling match with aging. I am 65 going on 2. I joke, laugh, can still do a hand stand and back flip. And, as you, I wrestled with age when I looked in the mirror. When I can't do a hand stand anymore, I will dream about it. If you ever get in my neighborhood, come on over, we will go snorkeling.
