The Day That Age Caught UP

It is easy to forget one’s age when life’s going along smoothly. But just occasionally, we have to stand back and say “I am not 34 or even 64, but 84”. And today my age caught up with me.

A weekend worrying and caring for my friend, driving backwards and forwards 50 km each way a couple of times and then this evening I came to a standstill. Or more accurately, a “shake still”. Having had a long lunch with another friend I arrived home to find my legs and arms were shaking and I couldn’t walk away from the car. I don’t usually park at the door but today I did.

So forgive me if I reblog a post from July 5, 2017, from my other blog – Growing Younger Each day. The title is More New Words. I am most definitely a logophile.

So until the next time –

whatever happens, the sun will rise tomorrow and
then all the shadows will be chased away,”

    1. Thank you so much Basia. I am taking advice from family and friends like you. I have cancelled all that I was to do today and tomorrow and even possibly Friday. So I can have time to myself to just sit, think and recover

    1. We forget less but our body remembers that we are ageing and have to take things rather more easily. I certainly plan to take a couple of days off and am stepping back from being so involved with that friend. She has other friends who can help. Thanks for your support

    1. The mind granny forgets our age but goodness me, the body just occasionally brings us up with a bang. A scary few minutes but a real wake up call
