The Big Day is fast approaching! This Sunday—six days from today—I will officially be a sixty-year-old woman!
How will I feel that morning when I first wake up and realize what day it is? Will I feel depressed and want to cover my head and stay in bed? Will I embrace this new stage of my life and jump out of bed ready to face the future? I’m not completely sure, but I hope I choose the latter reaction.
As this milestone quickly approaches, the anticipation increases each day. I truly believe that this next year will be full of new adventures to experience, new opportunities to embrace, new things to learn, and new memories to cherish. I have a feeling this ride will be wild and crazy and a whole lot of fun!! I just hope Darrel will be able to keep up with me!!
My desire is to embrace this new era with joy, enthusiasm, expectancy and child-like faith. I am determined to look sixty in the eye and say, “Bring it on!”
In my opinion, my life is just beginning and God has some great things in store. I refuse to be depressed or to feel “old.” After all—“Age is just a number,” right?.
