Now that I am officially a ‘senior’ I can truthfully say that as you grow older your view of things change. You don’t sweat the small stuff, your friends and family become even more important to you, you realize that life and everything in it is precious and can be gone in the blink of an eye. As you age this all becomes clearer! When I was younger I thought I knew these things but I knew them on a surface level. Now I feel these things deep in my soul. It is now more important to me to spend time with my partner, the dog, to listen to the children, to spend time just observing nature and the world around me. I don’t need to be on that whirlwind ride anymore. PS Happy 85th Birthday to my wonderful Mom!!!!
