Remember how hard it was in school when the teacher said to get out your paper and pencil, and then told you what you had to write on that piece of paper?
Not at Lisa-Jo’s on Friday mornings!
Yep, we can write anything we want about one word (her choice) for five minutes. No changes, no corrections, no backtracks. And when we’re finished, we link up on her blog to meet new friends and find old ones visiting too. Want to come along?
Today’s word: change.
I’m at that stage in life where the word change makes my skin crawl. Literally. I look down and I see some fine lines and wrinkles, and those horrid age spots. At least that’s what the doctor calls them. And, of course, follows it up with something about this is what happens “at your age.”
Change isn’t always comfortable. Pounds don’t drop off so easily. And exercise doesn’t come so easily. Bones ache more especially when arthritis decides to visit.
Oh, and get this one. I mention to my hair stylist that I’m thinking of coloring my hair. You see my hair is thinning and is fine, and a color gives it additional body. She says, “Why would you want to do that? The Master Stylist has highlighted your hair already with a lovely silver.” Sigh . . .
I’m also noticing that I don’t hear as well as I used to or my husband, always a soft spoken man, is speaking much more softly these days.
Fortunately, there is a constant in all our lives that doesn’t change, and He’s holding my hand so I’m not as afraid of all this change as I thought I’d be 20 years ago!
