“You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope, as old as your despair.” ~Douglas MacArthur, US General
Funny how birthdays devilishly sneak up on us. For some they are embraced with delightful dreams of frosted sweets, gifts galore and parties, parties, parties. For others (and I am in that boat for sure), the adding of another digit towards another decade doesn’t make for a happy camper. This last year seemed to not only careen past me but brought shackles of doubt, fear and despair… like I wanted to negotiate for a lower bid, after all, I’ve still got so much left to do!!! Alas, ’tis but a number, our age, right? So, those of us trying to swap our deli tickets for hope of turning back the clock… stop the madness! Embrace the potential in each day you’re given. Work on your faith, your self-confidence, your hope and understanding and the result might be longer days, longer years, and a longer life. ~KD
