In ten years… I’ll be… 60 years old. Ouch. I never thought I would be that old. I don’t really think too much about it though. I make jokes about turning 50 next month. Then I think about how old my mother is… she will be 75 in August. Yikes. She is still going strong, getting up and dressed to the nines every single day, driving herself around town, getting a “bite to eat”, and taking care of her 82 year old sister in the nursing home. I can only hope that in ten years, I will be able to do just as much. Oh, and did I mention? She has had two hip replacements on her right hip, heart bypass surgery, and a pacemaker. All within the past 5 years.
It’s hard to really imagine where I will be in the next ten years. I try to imagine it, but right now, for the first time in my life, I am HAPPY. Big changes have happened in the past 6 or 7 months that have made all the difference in the world to me. I remarried on January 2nd. My husband is 62, strong and confident, and definitely the man for me. The one I have always dreamed of having. ♥
In ten years… where do I WANT to be? Here…
Well, not the same exact place as the picture, but something similar. Back in October, this house was for sale for $275,000 with the following ad:
2007, 2000 sq. ft. 3bd/2ba energy eff. Ranch home, 1 bd/1ba updated cabin by 2 ac pond. Barn, outbuildings, Pecan trees, Grapevines, Blueberries, Pear tree, on 48 ac.
It sounds like the perfect place that I want to be. I want to live off the land, have a garden full of vegetables, maybe a cow (or two?), have a pantry full of canned goods—not tin cans— but mason jars full of my own products that I have preserved. Well, all with the help of my wonderful husband that is.
It may be hard work, it may be hot work, but it would be “my” work. I can’t say that I have accomplished much in my 50 years of life, but I want to go out feeling as if there was something worth what I had done in my life.
Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many. ~Author Unknown
