Footprints in the Windsm # 1608–Welcoming the badge “elder”

Footprints in the Windsm # 1608

For several months as I am approaching my 70th birthday I find that I am welcoming the badge “elder.” I am choosing to ask for help or to hire work done—lawn mowing for instance—though I still am able. I choose. Yesterday I did some light electrical work, today I’ll do some plumbing and yard work—engaging mind and large and small muscles. I enjoy good health, energy, and the motive to get good things done. There are positives to being an elder. Lengthening sight. Desire for the good of all humankind. Knowing every this passes, things get better, the best is found in loving engagement with our world.

Please pass it on.
