Do you ever feel like I do, that you have never grown up?Here I am living life just gleefully strolling through, singing as I go. When suddenly, I STOP and glance over when my mind trigger's seeing an 'old' person in front of me; while come to find out that there is a long shiny mirror smack dab in front of my entire being---that 'Old-Person' is ME!
At first, I kinda squint, then bend a bit closer--peering into my own eyes. Oh no, there are fine lines all around my brown shrinking eyes! My face...goodness, my face: IT'S GONE SOUTH! But, as my eyes automatically flowed down this frame I was peering at- AUGH! My body went south too!
This can't be right, inside I feel like that goofy 19 year old I once was. Hopes and dreams are still out there for me to soar and retrieve! Then, as I am staring at this sad frame; the truth is, that the energy to RETRIEVE those dreams is waning greatly.
As I turn around, my droopy eyes look into three beautiful, glowing faces, that look like me! Their eyes are full of gleaming Light and their smiles glow brightly! This makes me feel all young again; that life is still flowing so beautifully in the way my God ordained it. I see three lives (my children); going full force and running the race of life with all they got. They have passion, strength and beauty.
Yea, this is why I must feel as if I have never grown up...I LOVE THIS LIFE!
