Happy Birthday to me. I turn 47 today. Despite my best efforts, I’ve discovered that I’m getting older, my hair is getting thinner and grayer, my body is shaped a little more different than twenty years ago.
I have less energy and enjoy a cat nap every once in a while.
I go to sleep and wake up earlier each day.
I catch myself saying things that my father use to say and with each word that comes out of my mouth, I sound more and more like an old man.
Of course, the AARP card I received in the mail didn’t make my impending sense of age any better.
