I wonder how much longer I have to live.............20 years, 2 years or 2 days - hopefully not the last number! I'm a planner, so, if I knew I would know how fast I have to move.
My dear friend over at Tales of Zapata blog informed me yesterday that I'm starting my 69th year of life since I'm turning 68 today. Of course that is information I didn't REALLY need to know. But, of course, as usual, he is right. You don't have your first birthday until you have lived a year. Oy vey.
So earlier this week I lost an hour when daylight savings time started. Then yesterday I lost a year. Good grief.
Do you wonder how long you have left? Or do you just think it will be a long time? I think I REALLY live in the moment and try not to waste an instant. However, remember, my mantra is doing nothing is not wasting time.
I guess I'm more cognizant of time then most. My husband died at 36 and my daughter at 42. It brings home that we don't all have a long life. Who ever imagined I would live this long? I sure didn't. I remember so many instances in previous years when I thought forty, then fifty were ancient. I was in my twenties then.
So, today I start that sixty-ninth year. It's a great time in my life. And I do mean GREAT! Woo hoo.
