If that isnt the truth.. I get up like a hobbled giraffi
Me too, it is a very strange thing how this just creeps up on us seemingly out of the blue. 🙂
I can relate!
I’m glad, thank you Kimberly. 🙂
Haha mine too!
I guess it is inevitable, what can one do, but deal with it the best that one can. 🙂
That’s right, we can rewind the film. Then again, once the body will be gone, the spirit may remain and, who knows, maybe in a childish way.
Perhaps my friend. 🙂 Although this body isn’t quite as young and flexible as it used to be, I still maintain a childish side…not too crotchety yet. 🙂
It seems like when I turned 56, I suddenly started feeling the protests from my body so loudly! UGH!
They creep up on us when we least expect it, but I guess it is what happens as we age…unavoidable.
