The Years In Your Life...
Don't you just love this sketch? This is the CAS challenge over on SCS this week. If you are a lover of CAS, you will want to check it out HERE.
This is going to be my mom's birthday card. She will be turning 60 in a couple of weeks and is really having a tough time with it. Don't worry...my mom never reads my blog since she only gets on the computer to play solitaire, so she won't see it! LOL!
I don't really understand why people have a hard time with aging. Yeah...sure it would be great to look 25 all of the time, but with age I think you get so much more out of life. When I look at what was important to me when I was 25 compared to what I value now, I will definitely take my 35 year old self, thank you very much!
I love my mom dearly, and have told her more than once that turning 60 is so much better than the alternative. I also remind her that so many people are not fortunate enough to live that long. My husbands dad passed away when he was only 47, and I am sure he would love to be celebrating his 60th birthday with his dad this year. I have a friend who's son died of brain cancer when he was only 6. Is turning 60 really a crisis? I think not.
I think we all should pay more attention to making the most of each and every day. I for one, want to work hard at the life in my years, not worry about the years left in my life.
Maybe I should right this inside of my mom's birthday card....hmmmmm.....
