    Well I look in the mirror

    and see the gray hairs starting to show up in my beard. Never thought about getting older until now. Have a long life to live yet but it's kind of funny seeing the grays, lol.

    As We Age Our Loved Ones Get Older

    It's not the wrinkles or the extra pounds that bother me, it's the fact that my mom is the youngest of 7 kids and she'll soon be 70.I can't imagine a world without my uncle and aunt that I spent time with growing up. He was the closest person I had in a father way in my life. I...

    I Know

    Especially since I had such a miserable childhood and growing up for me was the pits. Also, there are so many things I always wanted to do when I was younger, but now it's too late because of my age. I wish there was such a thing as the fountain of youth.

    43 is a difficult age for me and probably for all women. Yes, we CAN have more children but we probably will not. You begin to look at your children and feel sadness that you will not be able to see another day one of a precious life. Of course I love my children, but I miss...

    Not for my own aging, but that of everyone around me. My uncle passed away today. I have had several older family members pass away this year, and it scares me to think who might be next.
