Oh My Gosh! I'm 60!
Yikes! Another birthday. I can't believe I'm 60. I don't feel sixty. I certainly don't want to act 'my age'. However, the years are catching up with me in some ways. One of the sweetest things about growing older is that I have learned so much!
Finally I realize that there are more important things in life than ('gasp') me. I now know that if I don't get my way in all things, my world will not fall apart.
I have come to understand that relationships are more important than material possessions.
My need for frenetic activity has been replaced with beautiful moments of quiet meditation and reflection.
I have discovered that God is closer than I ever imagined, and that my relationship with Him is the most important thing in my life.
All in all, I'm feeling pretty good about being sixty. Life is simple and good.
