What is Old?

I have been out of sorts for lack of a better term lately.  Life has been busy, but I think there is something deeper going on.  I just can't seem to get motivated or get my thoughts in one place.  My hubby has been sweet enough to take on the project of scanning my momma's photos.  We are right at 5,000, so needless to say we have not been taking a walk down memory lane we are taking a trip! lol.  Lots and lots of memories!  He casually asked how does it feel to be the older generation now?  And it dawned on me maybe that is the root of my problem, I am the older generation in our family now.  All of my aunts and uncles are gone so we are it!  And that just sounds so old.  We laughed last night because it dawned on me that my mom was 56 when I graduated from high school.  And oh my gosh I though she was old...  funny how our thoughts change.  
I have been praying that God will help me get it together and give me a voice, give me a deep yearning to reach people for his glory. I ran across a video of Patsy Clairmont today that I would like to share.  Many of you may have seen it.  I love her she can have me laughing one moment and wiping tears the next.  

until next time...nel


  1. I hear ya, and while my husband's mom as well as my parents are still alive, I'm having to come to grips with the aging-parents time in my life. Hard at times.

  2. Love Patsy Clairmont. Growing old is not so fun, but I'm so glad to still be alive.

  3. Nel, I just turned 61 and I still haven't processed being 60! Like Cathy I am happy to be here. No other age ever bothered me like 60 did. No way, that's the age of our parents....not me. Well it is me and I want to make the most of the time I have left. My mother passed away at 56 :( Enjoyed the video.
