When I think back to my last significant birthday, I felt so miserable and so terrified and so alone. In this past decade I experienced a great deal of hurt. But I learned from it. Am learning from it. And what I am learning is how wonderful it is to be around truly loving souls again.
That’s what aging is. Another day. Another step along the path. Another chance to love more, to learn more. To dance more.
Okay with aging? Seriously? It is one of many ironies in life that the longer I live, the more I love life. Sometimes I think this aging thing is absolutely the greatest thing ever invented. When I am thankful for every day, every day I find I have so much to be thankful for.
