The Big Day

Well, I made it to the big day. Imagine being 60 years old! I don't feel any different today than I did yesterday or the day before or last January 2nd. My Wii fit age today was 25!!! Wow! What a gift that was! My friend from high school, Judy Jarvis, sent me an ecard that had a quote from the book of Job. "Is not wisdom found among the aged? Does not long life bring understanding?" Ch.12 Verse 12. Having just now reached the senior citizen group, I'm not too sure about the wisdom or understanding. It seems to me that the older I get, the less I know for sure. There are many more gray areas now than in the past. Maybe that is what wisdom is really all about. Anyway, this morning my little granddaughter, Veda, who will turn 3 on Janaury 7, called and wished me Happy 60th Birthday. It was almost as sweet a moment as when my mom called and sang it to me. I wonder what she would say about me turning 60. Probably something positive - like - keep up the good work and God will bless you with many more years.

I used to want to live to be 100. Now, I'm not so sure. Too many losses to endure. So, here's to today. May it be a happy day to store in my memory.
