Sip, sigh……Good Morning Mum.
Happy birthday to me! Again it’s always a matter of perspective. When my Mum turned 60 she said it was the first year she felt old.
I’m thinking there are some things that I disagreed with her about….and on this I was spot on.
Just spent last week skiing in the Colorado Rockies with two of my grandkids. Headed out today to enjoy the slopes with my sweet husband – the pass is open, snowy but plowed and sanded. We have chains. A couple inches of new snow on the pass.
These two grandchildren are blessed with having their maternal grandmother live near them in Colorado. I have this very cool lady to thank for completely changing my perspective on hitting my 60s. She wished me a great last week skiing with our grands as I finished up Sweet Six-tee. She wished me happy 60 One-derful and told me that I should look forward to 60-Two Good to be true!!!
Next year I get a lifetime pass to the national parks! I hear the price is going to go up – no problem – I plan to live another 20 years, so I think it’ll be worth every penny!
9 years ago I had trouble walking…..after 12 months I made it back to full function….. so it really isn’t about how old we are, it’s whether or not we have our health, correct? Right now, I just want it to slow down so this great goodness can last.
Hiked yesterday to a waterfall that looked like it was coming out of a slot canyon. When we made it back to the car this song was playing on the radio. Life is good!
