Does anyone else wonder where the time went? I always heard that time seems to go faster, the older one gets. That is the honest truth. Some days I feel older than others. Yep. I wake up and stumble to the bathroom mirror and think, “Wow. When did this happen?”
My daughter enjoys that I can get all the 80’s references in the show that we watch together. The best music is still from the 80’s or earlier, in my humble opinion. I miss leg warmers and Jordache jeans. (although I saw a commercial yesterday for Walmart that Jordache jeans are making a comeback. I had a pair circa 1985.)
I was always the one that said I would age gracefully, ala Katherine Hepburn style. Lately, I’ve just felt the burn…without the Hep. Sigh. I know. I know. I have several readers that are older (read that as mature)….and would love to be 44 again. Okay, so that might be true, but I’m still seeing gray hairs and feeling achy joints. I’m sojourning on, but aging can be the pits. Just sayin’.
On the positive side, as I’ve aged I think I have a better perspective about things. I at least try. Experience brings
wisdom…well, at least with most things. The important stuff, truly is the important stuff, and I realize it. I’m trying to slow down. I want to enjoy the moments that God has blessed me with.
I’m always learning, and taking it one day at a time.
(P.S) I secretly wish I could still fit into my Jordache jeans from 1985. A girl can dream.

Do I wish to be 44 again? I loved those years when I was busy with family and career but I also love my days now when I have time to do the things I want to do. Enjoy each stage of your life – you really only get to live it once.
You think 44’s tough? Wait till the 60’s hit. And Social Security (although I still think they need another word besides security) and Medicare, and free McDonalds coffee. When was I 44? I forget. I”m still loving God and still getting closer to Him, hopefully every day. Gray hair? I’d be happy just to have hair again? :>) Great post. Thanks.
