A Reason to Love Getting Older

Today I am linking up with Five Minute Friday again.  (I have had a rough week, so I needed a little break.) The rules are as follows:

    Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
Here goes.  The topic is older.

Ryan is older today. Hard to believe that it has been eight years since he entered this crazy world. Crazy as I see it. He sees it as wonderful. Ryan often says, "This is the best day of my life!" Yes, he has taught us to enjoy our moments and live them outrageously. One thing you can say about Ryan is he always goes all out.

So, if Ryan is older today, I guess that makes me older, too. I am one day closer to the 40 mark.  It will happen in less than two months.  I was looking forward to a big bash to celebrate...but now the closer it gets, the more I want to party quietly.  That is so unlike me. Sounds old. 

Whatever the case, I am reminded a verse in my favorite book of the bible, 2 Corinthians.  "Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day." Now, that's a reason to love getting...older.   
(2 Cor. 4:16)

That's it. 

How do you feel about getting older?

Happy Friday love to all of you!

Unwrap the gift of life today!

I have been two ages for the last 9 years 28 & 35. I had to increase to 35 after my daughter said people were going to think I had her when I was about 15!
I have been 35 for two years now!

Older... wow... I haven't thought about that in a while. All my life all I wanted to be was older. Just recently I couldn't figure out how I had become a "mother" to some in my church.. I mean, I'm still a kid! I'm only 44! How did this happen? But the new seasons we walk into as we get older can be just as exciting as those we've come thru ... according to how we deal with getting older. I choose not to mind getting older (most of the time... lol)
