One-Minute Writer - Aging

Today's One-Minute Writing Prompt: Aging

Reflect on the best thing about aging, and the worst

The best thing about aging is the wisdom I've gained about life. I still don't know everything, but I have a better understanding of how the world is. I've raised 3 healthy, beautiful daughers and now I'm looking forward to adding grandchildren to my life. I was so busy when the girls were young, but with age I have more patience and will have more time to spend with the next generation.

The worst thing about aging is the fact I'm aging. I'm getting closer and closer to the twilight of my life. Although I may finally be over the rainbow, it doesn't come without a price. All these aches and pains I feel each and every day are a reminder I'm not as young as I used to be.

Boy, do I relate to this. You hit the nail on the head - both with the good and the bad.

AT 60...I can certainly identify with your assessment of aging...I loved your post when I saw it on OMW.
