I am proud to be at the age I am,  for I have learned valuable lessons and gained good helpings of wisdom.  During different stages of life, we seem to be in a hurry to be the best, have the most and get to the “finish line”  first.  Personally, I see life through a different lens and I love the view.  I am thankful for where I have been, even though there have been many challenges, what life worth living doesn’t have them!  I am embracing the rest of my life slowly and gratefully enjoying the journey, knowing it was never intended to be a race.
