Sayre is this week’s hostess for Fun Monday! Here’s her assignment: Using your imagination, project into the future and tell me what you will be like as an 80-year old. Will you be someone who doesn’t accept the aging process, spending all your time in thegym and the bars, or will you be a rocking chair granny, or something in between?
Well, I guess as an 80 year old, I hope that I’ll be fairly accepting of the aging process. My own mother is in her 60s and still looks great! Most people don’t believe her when she tells her age. I’m kind of like her, I see no sense in lying about those things. No amount of plastic surgery, at least if you have kids, is going to make people forget that you can’t be 29 if your kid is 22, you know? I hope that I am definitely not working by then, and that my husband and I are enjoying old age in the front porch swing, watching grandkids if we have any (no pressure, baby girl, you’re still a baby yourself), and perhaps maybe seeing a great grandkid or two. Never know. I hope my nieces and nephews remember that I was good to them growing up and come and visit me and bring their kids for a visit as well. I hope that I have gotten a good reputation for being a nice person and that at least one person looks up to me, whether I know about it or not. I hope that someone realizes that my life was fun, tragic, interesting, or something! and thinks fondly of the funny stories that Matthew and I are able to tell. In short, I hope that I have a good life, live well, and prepare myself well for the afterlife. I hope in doing so that I am a good witness for the next generation of family as to what being a good person means and how fulfilling it can be. Please read about what my grandmother did in her 80s, here.
Yesterday, all of you bloggers were my heroes, please feel free to scan down and read other posts about heroes, about me participating in candy trials and much more! I’ll have next week’s Fun Monday topic up later on this week!
