Birthdays and growing older

In a couple of days I  will be another year older. Last year was a vey traumatic birthday for me. I turned sixty – ten. I was in denial. This year I am slightly more mature and I will admit to the fact that I will be seventy one { YIKES}. I suspect I will be able to deal with the next nine birthdays, but the tenth birthday when I will be sixty – twenty I will probably have a depressing day. I  know, I know I should be grateful for each and every year. I am- but I wish the body and the face wouldn’t age so quickly. I sometimes creak when I walk and when I look in the mirror I see my mother and wonder when she got so old. In spirit I feel younger than my youngest child.
