Yup; hit my 64th birthday, and I still sometimes feel as if I have the wisdom of a 14-year-old and the mental acuity of a MAGA hat. On the other hand, I occasionally have flashes of wisdom and have once or twice cut myself on my razor-sharp wit.
Now I need to remember how to be kind, brave, and hard-working on a more regular basis than I am regularly.
Having said all of that - none of which is meant to be compliment fishing or humble-bragging - I want to acknowledge the gifts I've been given.
I am living with the man I love most in the world, the smartest person I know, and the kindest; I have a son who is smart, kind, and talented in many ways, and I have a daughter-in-law who also fits that bill. I have wonderful friends, both online and off. I am doing work I believe in. I'm in relatively good health. I'm able to exercise my creativity in ways that make me happy. I am really quite blessed.
Oh, and BB got me an air-fryer for my birthday. That's particularly cool. Heh.
