Do you like being old Grandma?
I would never trade my amazing friends, my wonderful life, my
loving family for less gray hair or a flatter belly. As I've aged,
I've become kinder to myself, and less critical of myself. I've
become my own friend. I don't chide myself for eating that extra
cookie, or for not making my bed, or for buying that silly cement
gecko that I didn't need, but looks so avante garde on my patio. I
am entitled to a treat, to be messy, to be extravagant.
I have seen too many dear friends leave this world too soon, before
they understood the great freedom that comes with aging.
Whose business is it if I choose to read or play on the computer until
4 AM and sleep until noon? I will dance with myself to those
wonderful tunes of the 60's &70's, and if I, at the same time, wish to
weep over a lost love ... I will.
I will walk the beach in a swim suit that is stretched over a
bulging body, and will dive into the waves with abandon if I choose
to, despite the pitying glances from the jet set. They, too, will get

break when you lose a loved one, or when a child suffers, or even when
somebody's beloved pet gets hit by a car? But broken hearts are what
give us strength and understanding and compassion. A heart never
broken is pristine and sterile and will never know the joy of being
I am so blessed to have lived long enough to have my hair turning
gray, and to have my youthful laughs be forever etched into deep
grooves on my face. So many have never laughed, and so many have died
before their hair could turn silver.
As you get older, it is easier to be positive. You care less about
what other people think. I don't question myself anymore. I've even
earned the right to be wrong.
So, to answer your question, I like being old. It has set me free. I
like the person I have become. I am not going to live forever, but
while I am still here, I will not waste time lamenting what could
have been, or worrying about what will be. And I shall eat dessert
every single day (if I feel like it).

No but a dear friend sent it to me after my heart attack so I thought I would take the opportunity to pass it along . Yesterday a few mentioned their birthdays so I thought I would share it with them as well as everyone else. I am really enjoying this site. I thank my friend Ricki for showing it to me, and I am enjoying the friendly people on this site from all over the world. They are a unique bunch who welcome and befriend you
