I am babysitting for 2 of my precious grandchildren while their parents are taking
a much needed vacation.
I took the 6 year old to a birthday party at a bowling alley and sat in the background remembering how 35 years ago I would bowl in a league and my mother would sit in the background watching us and I would give her a wave now and then. She appeared to be content as an observer. Now I wonder what was she really thinking ?
Was she thinking as I was that she wished she was as young as the parents giving the party and not the "old Granny"
I know "age is a state of mind" but let me tell you when I sit on the floor playing with the kids and struggle to stand my mind screams YOU ARE OLD.
Well 10 years from now at 75 I will be envying 65 year olds.
Soooo the moral of my story is Enjoy each day , stop wishing my life away and be happy !!!
