Empty Nest, Abundant Life

Nag Less, Pray More


I love to laugh.  I love to be in the sunshine.  I.m not a plastic surgery, Botox, or serum kind of gal, so the result as I approach fifty are some fine lines around the corners of my eyes and around my smile area that previously did not exist.  I know I could research the best way to eradicate these from my face so I would appear years younger, but I’m proud of my wrinkles.  I’ve earned every one of them through years of smiling and experience.  It is a sign that I have enjoyed life and lived on the edge.   My wrinkles seem to multiply as my body weight decreases.  It shows a life well-lived.   I don’t know how I’ll feel about them when I am 90, but for now I will enjoy my wrinkles!

  1. Oh man, it’s taken me a while to embrace my wrinkles, especially the ones in my hands.
