Age: “Accumulation of changes in an organism or object over time” (Wikipedia)


We hear it all the time. How fast life goes.  We see the changes, some very difficult not to notice.  We see it by watching our children grow.  We see it in the way we look.  We see it pass on in pictures and we stare at them as if they were mystical windows that transport us to the past.


Some of us will age with pity, some will age with grudges, and some with grace and pride.


Time won’t stop to make us feel younger; time will go on without any considerations. Time at the end will keep on and we will become a memory or an image. Let’s live life.  Enjoy every moment of it and cherish every single second, because that second will pass and won’t come back.


Let age become a gift and not a burden. Enjoy it.  Live it.  And let time pass with…Grace!

Dear "Valentina,"
I have been drowning in doubt.
Thank you for visiting my blog with such kind words.
And the words in this post of yours show me even more what a beautiful heart you have.

I agree that you have a beautiful heart. I am struggling with aging right now and I was just talking to my husband about it. Am I where I want to be? Am I doing my best to be the woman that I want to be? Interesting that I then come and read your blog and here you have a lovely entry about just what we were talking about. Bizarre coincidence and comforting at the same time. :o) Amy
