I am now 3/4 of a centry in age.
My 75th birthday was last month. Who would have thought that I would be this age?
There has been so much history. Presidents have come and gone. Popes have come and gone. The Cold War has come and gone. Wars have come and gone. The governments of countries have not only changed leaders but in some cases the countries have become other countries.
My parents and grandparents are gone. I welcomed 6 siblings. Two of them are gone. Most of my aunts and uncles are gone. My ex-husband, the father of my children, is gone.
I was blessed with 4 children. They gave me 6 grandchildren. I now have 6 great-grandchildren. Fortunately they are all still healthy.
I have dealt with health problems at times. Colds, flu, measles, chicken pox, mumps, epilepsy, appendicitis, gall bladder, cancer, a stroke, cuts, and bruises. I am still here. I graduated from physical therapy last week. I am basically healthy and more than content with my life.
My goal from the time I was a child was to be 81 years old. I have changed my goal as we should all do from time to time. I think I am shooting for 100 now.
