Getting older

Today is a gloomy day in Chicagoland.  As I sit on my break at work, I feel inclined to share with you the pain that I have in my left knee, which is brought on by our humid weather.  It’s horrible realizing that you are getting older, but it’s also magnificent to think back on all of the experiences we’ve had in life, both good and bad.  Sure their are some experiences that we’d like to erase from our past, just as there are also numbers in our age that we’d erase along with it.  The fact is there is no going back and changing anything that we’ve done, so all we can do is sit back and appreciate our lives.  Speaking of which, I’d have to take this wonderful opportunity, to wish my mother a very happy birthday.  My mother is amazing because it seems the older she gets, the more energy she has.  Once knocked down by rheumatoid arthritis, this woman is one of the most active women I know.  Although she may wish that she could erase years from her life, it was those very difficult years that have made her the amazing woman that she is today.   I love you mom!!!
