I can totally relate to this. Time is so fleeting. I had to laugh last week because the doctor told me at 53, I was too young to have a shoulder replacement, yet my shoulder doesn't feel young.
My biggest suggestion would be to set the scene before you start the dialog. I've heard experts say to never start a story with dialog because it can make the reader feel confused or like they are intruding. I don't always agree, but in this case I do. I really thought it was going to be one of those jokes kids say when you repeat words it sounds like something silly. I like your message a lot. It's one I needed to hear desperately today. I've had a rough week and you reminded me of what is ahead of me. I can't tell you how much I appreciate that. The verses you chose fit nicely with your message.
I thought the connection between beginning and ending of the piece was smart and well-done.
A good reminder that God is to be our strength where we are weak. There is nothing like age to get us to that place. Enjoyed the entry. Good job.
Well done, I appreciated reading this, especially as I age and have been dealing with many issues.

Thank you,
I knew you were at the audiologist, as I take my mom there on occasion. I love how you end with the say eternity!
I am much older than the writer but I am young in heart
