I choose to laugh at myself....ALOT!
At work, I was talking to my boss about my bursitis....BURSITIS! I don't know about you, but when I heard that word as a youngster I thought it was for old people. Well, I have it! LOL
I also have an increase of multiple things:
some memory loss
some hearing loss
aches and pains
gravity on the face
gravity on the body
BUT, I can laugh at these temporary weird things happening. There is no sense in battling against them or not welcoming them....they are present and they are a part of me. I choose to laugh at myself and enjoy the freedom of being a part of this 50+ club for awhile. I am thankful that God draws me to focus on the important things, not the things that are aging more rapidly than I am comfortable with. I am thankful I have a husband that I laugh with almost everyday about the funny things that are going on with us!
It's only forgetting yourself that you draw near to God. -Henry David Thoreau
