Getting Older

Well, good people, I realized last night that, like the rest of the world, I am aging.  Thing is, I knew it but I didn’t think much about it.  However, last night I was attempting to read something with small letters.  I picked up and out on a pair of old reading glasses that I keep on my nightstand.  Lo and behold, the letters were clearer and larger.  That’s when I accepted that my eyes were aging as well as the rest of me.  No longer can I lose weight seemingly by just thinking about it, no longer can I eat what I want and not gain, no longer do I have painless knees, no longer do I have non-aching joints.  Oh well.  Such is life.  While I’m on this side of Heaven, I’ll continue to make the most of it.  Aging eyes, painful joints, protruding tummy, and all the rest of me.  While we live, let us live.
