I made it! I'm in the Youth of Old Age!
I never thought I'd ever live this long. I really didn't. The majority of the women in my family haven't lived past their early 50's. Most of them succumbed to cancer--either breast or colon. I guess I just assumed I'd be lucky to make it to my mid-50's. Now, I'm older than my husband was when he died. He looked forward to being old. I never did. I still don't, but you can't change the clock of time. I guess I am old now. I expect I'll still live for a while. My goal is to live long enough to be a problem to my children! Like my daughter says, "Mom, it's too late for that." I don't think I've accomplished that yet, though, at least, not to my satisfaction! Anyway, as much as I'd like not to say this,
"I am, I am, I am still younger than my children, damnit!"
