The misconception in the quote above is that even if you do mind, it doesn't matter. You can't change your age, you can only change how you feel about it. I will admit, there are times when it's hard to feel good about it, like when there's a spell of damp weather and my joints are stiff and sore, but I'm trying to focus on the positive: they may ache, but they are still functional!
There are so many things to be positive about: I am grateful for all the blessings in my life: healthy, self-sufficient children and grandchildren. ( I watch Dr. Phil--I've seen those kids who mooch off their parents into their thirties, those kids who are drug dependent or in some other way at odds with the law!)
I have the good fortune to have a loving husband who puts up with all my flaws and foibles, and (knock on wood!) I am still healthy. I have a sister who is the dearest person in the world, brothers I know would be there for me if I needed them, and a circle of really good friends. By those standards, I count myself truly rich. What more could one want?
