“Wisdom doesn’t necessarily come with age. Sometimes age just shows up all by itself.”
Last night, I was prancing and trying to get some sleep when suddenly, I thought about getting old, a reality I am hoping to avoid simply because I’m afraid of it.
At 30, I already dread about getting old. I enjoy so much my life now and can hardly imagine what my life would be when I’m what they refer to as senior citizen (in Marikina though, our oldies coined a new word for oldies — they call themselves active adults).
Oh well, it’s still too early to worry about that now. I just wanted, through this site, to tell my mice (my term of endearment for my mom which is pronounced mays in tagalog) that I love her so much and I’m sorry that I sometimes (or oftentimes) neglect her needs and situation as an almost 70-yr old woman. My mice doesn’t even know how to turn on a PC so I’ll just tell her myself tonight.
Got this in my email today, I think it’s funny, probably because I’m still not into the cited situations. Maybe I’ll read this again after 30 years and see If I would be able to even force a smile.
