My first thought when I woke up this morning was that this time next year, not only will I be a year older, but I'll be entering another decade of my life. How quickly my life is passing by!
I'm not a person that has ever let my age bother me and have never cared if you ask my age. It just sort of slapped me in the face early today...next year I really am going to be a Senior Citizen!
Today is my 59th birthday. I was also thinking about how different childbirth & baby care is today. When I was born my mother was in the hospital for 2 weeks, and that was standard procedure-- way back then! (Laughing!) Mothers were not allowed to get out of the bed for several days--I think maybe even close to a week. I remember asking my Mom why they had to stay in bed so long & she said it was so"their wombs would go back in place"! Can you imagine? Also, there were no visitors allowed except the father & grandparents & then only for a very limited time. What about that, Karen? I'm sure CRH gets those mommies right on their feet & out the door ASAP!
So, I'm trying to age gracefully-just not sure how that is working out though. And the next time a store clerk asks me if I'm a senior citizen, I'll just smile & take my discount!
....see Karen's blog if you want to see that I really haven't always been this old!
