On Ageing


My high school friends get together a couple of times a year. At our last gathering we talked about things that come with age.

Seems a lot of “losing” goes with the territory. It was about losing hair, hearing, eyesight, and sadly, memory.

As I lay on my bed one night, I thought of things that we could be “winning” instead: like our golden friendships, more time during retirement, stronger faith, wisdom, being comfortable in our skins, being more tolerant and understanding, to name a few.

Let’s always choose to look at the glass half-full and to count our blessings this and every passing year.
