The 60's


A sad thing about entering the 60's is the passing of close friends and family and realizing, once again, how fortunate I am to still be around. Hubby and I lost a dear sweet brother-in-law this week. A good man, with wife, children and grandchildren who loved him dearly. It's heartbreaking.

When I was younger and saw the elderly pass away it was comfortable to say, "they had a good life, it was their time to go, etc." But now that I'm in my 60's, when it's one of my peers that pass away, it's another feeling indeed. Mostly...Will I be next?

Very disconcerting and difficult to write about. Just another of the issues that accost me more often as I get farther into the 60's.
