Recently, when having a discussion with an older gentleman, we were discussing life and how he wanted to fulfill many things before he dies. Knowing my age, he said I was on the sunny side of sixty, which I thought was funny. Sunny. Sixty. That number!
Sunny side I get, but this sixty number is affecting me the closer I get. How did this happen so quickly? I, too, have things I want to do as he does before the grave. I was twenty one day, then forty and now on the sunny side.
No doubt many of you have felt the same through the years or as the birthday candles increase.
While life has not been too bad, many rough patches came and not to forget the many blessings. Life.
Thankfully, I feel more alive physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually today than I did almost five years ago. It has not been easy going to counseling and opening up and dealing with areas of life and those rough patches. It has been healing though while understanding the whys, questions, and uncertainties as I had to trust my counselor and moreso God.
I do not know what the other side of sixty looks like for me but I’ll be aiming for the sweet side of seventy and will be laughing and having fun along the way.
Lets make the most of our time left here on earth and be a blessing to others. Remember…
