Turning 66

Lord Tomorrow, I will become truly a senior citizen, at least according to my birth certificate. If I had a clue as to how a 66 year old should feel, maybe I would feel that way and be there. Actually,  I have no clue as to the expected behaviors of a 66 year old; in fact I cannot believe that I am arriving at that landmark, but I am. Okay, for some younger folks, I arrived at the Senior Citizen chart years ago. I get it!  I am really a young guy in an aging body. My vision is young, my zeal not lacking, and my 44 years with Dottie seem like only a few years. But then, it couldn’t be, because how could you pack so many wonderfilled experiences into your life unless it is over decades? I feel like I have life experiences that are valuable but I have new experiences evrry day. So I am not an experienced 66 year old tomorrow. I am a 66 year old with some experience…I always say about marriage,  just when I think I know my wife, she changes. I hope she and I are always that way.

Usually, I truly wake up in the morning saying I’m alive, I’m alert, and I feel great. I say ”Good, Lord, it is morning” instead of ”Good Lord, it is morning.” I really look forward to my day, my work, my experiences. Every day is a new day that brings new opportunity and new experiences. indeed, every day brings challenge and adventure and I love it. I love my work, my relationships, my life. 66 years have been so great. Thank you Lord for the life you continue to give to me…
