Well Hello Fifty
What do I have to show for being fifty years old? What have I done with my life?
I’ve written a book. I can cook. I’m witty. But those are all external things – abilities, you might say. I could go on, but enough about me.
What really counts in life?
I’m married over thirty years to the love of my life. A man who loves, honors and respects me. He’s my best friend. He says I look like I’m only thirty-eight, which just endears him to me. If that wasn’t enough, I have two beautiful children who love me. I’m extremely proud of the young adults they have become.
I have many people in my life (family and friends) that care about me.
That’s what matters most – love. I’m grateful that for these past fifty years I’ve had love in my life. Yes, there is always sorrow and pain, but love seems to wash over those things when you look back on life.
Thank you Lord, for all the love that’s been in my life yesterday, today and tomorrow.
