When I Grow Up

I loved Barbara Bush’s statement that the best thing about being the first lady was not having to wonder what she was going to be when she grew up. Well, I’m now “grown up” at 77 years of age, and life continues to be a challenge. I have retired and can look back on my working years as productive. I am left with a good enough retirement, including my pension and social security payments. I am both in love with my life and with my wonderful partner, Dimitris. I have every ache and pain that are attributable to my age, but I handle them day by day and don’t complain or even wish that I were younger. I thrive on my faith and my belief system which has matured over the years to the point that I no longer doubt whether or not I am loved by God. I’m totally secure in that belief. I look forward to whatever future awaits me. I pray that, when I die, I will have died of ordinary old-age things and not some serious, debilitating disease. I am not afraid of death but look forward to spending my remaining life happily  and in love.
