Not too long ago, I was talking to my mother, who is now 90, and I told her “I wish we could go back and be little again.” I thought she would agree as we were such “precious” children-smile– and due to her age, surely she too would like to be young again. Her response, however, blew me away.
She said, “Not me, I am happy and content with my age, where I am in life.” Well, I was left with nothing to say, there was no comeback.
Knowing she has a few health issues, can’t walk anymore–is confined to a wheelchair I was amazed at this response. Still am. How wonderful to be at peace where you are in life, at that moment in time, and not wish to be another age or somewhere else or for things to be different. If only everyone could have that peace…the world might be more peaceful.
