My Mom had a saying and it went like this:
"For the shape I'm in,
I'm in pretty good shape."
At my age, I still do pretty well.
I shovel and blow my own snow.
I trim my acres of trees myself.
I do the heavy lifting.
I'm doing my walking program for
at least an hour a day.
I am averaging 4 miles per day.
I'm still pretty flexible.
My energy is pretty good.
I still like to run errands and shop.
I began taking my kids camping last summer.
Set up my tent all by myself!
This aging stuff isn't too bad!
There is one thing I am not enjoying though.
I am wondering if any of you have guessed it yet.
I doubt you young whipper snappers have.
But I bet those of you in my age bracket have.
It happened to my Mom.
For years, she required my assistance while shopping.
It happened to my sister.
I sometimes send her several pairs in a care package.
I see my best friend squinting.
Personally, I have some by my bedside,
the kitchen counter,
and a pair in the car.
I am in big trouble if I don't have them
with me at ALL times.
Have you all figured it out yet?
You're likely thinking that I can't properly
control my fonts on here today.
Let me assure you,
this one time, technology is NOT my foe.
It's the part of aging I HATE!
Not being able to read a thing,
without my reading glasses!
This has been my little demonstration into what you have to look forward to,
if you don't already share this current challenge with me.
I bet the rest of you
can't can wait!
