Know that Beatles song?
The refrain keeps going, on and on and on, through my head.
My kids would tell you, in jest, that I’m not far off 64! Hah!
But I am wondering about growing older. About life in the future. About what I want to be like and what I don ‘t want to be.
About facing life without kids.
The Who sang I hope I die before I get old.
And now they are old. Or dead.
For those of The Who still alive, is life what they thought it would be?
Better? Worse? Just different?
My grandmother used to say I hope I die at Christmas and ruin it all for you!
Well, I certainly don ‘t want to do that! lol!
But I do know that who I am, how I will live will reflect some of the choices that I make now, in my late forties.
The saints are the sinners who keep on going. Robert Louis Stevenson
Maybe. Maybe you have to just keep on going, in prayer and love and doing what is right.
