This Saturday, September 7, 2013 will mark the two-year anniversary of my current job--and my readmission into the work force after toiling as a-stay-at-home mom from 1983 to 2011.
October will mark the ten-year anniversary of writing my garden column for the print publication Northwest Boomer and Senior News.
October 31st will mark my thirty-year anniversary of being a mother. My little boy, now a strapping young man, will turn 30. My youngest is now 21.
November will mark the five-year anniversary of my garden blog.
My husband and I have been commenting on how we're getting older and it seems like the days turn into years right before our eyes. It's kind of scary. I'd really like the two of us to have happy golden years, free of work and health-related anxieties.
I really don't mind getting older. I like that age has mellowed me. I don't fret so much and although I enjoy learning new things and keeping my brain busy, I don't feel the need to know everything or have all the answers. I am content with uncertainty, believing that the most important things are written in stone and unchanging and that we all have to discover these truths on our own.
If you don't mind, what has getting older taught you?
