My husband awakened me with a nice cup of coffee with extra cream, just the way I like it. He gave me an oversized card with a photo of the boys and I on the front. My husband loves to make his own cards and they are all keepers. Inside the sentiments were pithy quotes regarding my new status.
"Inside every older person is a younger person wondering what the hell happened." Cora Harvey Armstrong
"Growing old is like being increaasingly penalized for a crime you have not committed." Anthony Powell
And my favorite,
"The years between fifty and seventy are the hardest. You are always beng asked to do things and yet you are not decrepit enough to turn them down." T. S. Eliot
Thanks, hon. I feel better already!
