” Old age, I’ve decided is a gift. I am now, probably for the first time in my life, the person I have always wanted to be……I would never trade my amazing friends, my wonderful life or my loving family for less gray hair or a flatter belly. 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.. 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’m still here, I will not waste time lamenting what could have been or worrying about what will be.” All I can add is….As I’ve become older, I’ve become more focused on being with God and feeling God’s presence. I’ve come to believe that the whole of the Gospel can be summed up in Paul’s word to the Ephesians(4:32): “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as Christ God forgave you.” I have learned also that suffering and tragedy serve a purpose but are best weathered with a strong faith, good friends and family.
