To All My Women Friends of Age...
Most of us are going through it...We are at that age where we see the wrinkles, grey hair and extra pounds...We see the pretty 25 year olds and sigh...But we were once 25 too, just like they will one day be our age. What they bring to the table with their youth and zest for life, we come to the table with our wisdom, experience and good hearts. For all we've been through earning each grey hair...be it raising kids, paying bills, illness and whatever else life brought us over our 30's, 40+ years...We are survivors...we are warriors.....we are Women...Like a classic car...or fine wine...while our exterior may not be what it once was...it is traded for our spirit...our courage...and our survival to enter this chapter of our lives with grace and pride for all we've been through and accomplished.
Never feel bad about aging. It is a privilege denied to many.
