Aging and Karma

5 years ago

I must admit, part of me find it sucky to be growing older.  The aches and pains is not the part,the part that I find depressing is hearing about old friends having terminal illness.  I must admit, I haven't been that great of a friend.  My ex-husband, my children, my family took first priority and when I find out that a friend has cancer, it makes me sad.  Hindsight can be a b####. She is really a trooper.  Going through treatments, it makes me sad to hear that the cancer is back, now I can only be a friend that calls her often and keep her in my thoughts and prayers.  

It must be something in the air but another one of my friends is getting a divorce.  Since I know both parties, him better than her, I find it sad that a third party is involved.  But both claims that the other is cheating so I wonder what is going on there.  But I give them both equal time and hope that it turns out ok.  He's comfortable so he should give her more.

My hometown boys won the World Series..Yay. I look at them and they are the same age as my nephew and in some case younger. I feel like a proud parent.

25 years ago, I couldn't imagine my life being what it is now.  Single and working again.  You know what, I'm happy.  I'm thankful that I see the true colors of my ex.  What a piece of work he turned out to be.  Karma, I'm just waiting to see what the next 25 years bring.  Maybe, I'll find someone new.
