OMG I think I am getting old

OMG I think I am getting old. Yes folks I have finally noticed I am getting old lol. Old age seems to be like some creepy moss ,that slowly spreads across your life and before you know it climbs all over you.
I have been married 34yrs this year and I swear I have no idea where it all went. As a young bride of 21 I thought I had years to live and I was going to do so much. I was going to be rich ( yes well still hoping on that one) and own a big house by the time I was 30. Sadly that never happened either.
I was slim and fit and enjoyed all my fitness classes and life with my young husband.

Then time slipped on and my new biggest wish was a baby. I wanted one so bad it hurt. My husband said to wait at first but then he gave in. Ok I thought this will be easy but one month went to two months and two went to a year. I was so unhappy and tests showed there was not a problem with either of us.
Friends who started trying the same time got pregnant but not me, it was totally frustrating and I thought I was never going to be a mother.
Then the miracle happened and along came my first child , a darling little boy who I called Matthew.
I was totally in love the second I saw him and for a while he was all I needed. Then I thought it would be nice for him to have a brother or sister and along came child number two, a girl who I called Natalie.

Both my children were perfect ( I know every mother says's that) but they were! Natalie was the total opposite to her brother , but both were a delight. I loved to be a mother and that has continued today.
Right now they are grown-up and married. Matthew is 32 and married to Karen. Natalie is 25 and married to Rob.
My children have grown into two fab people. I love them both to death and I feel such pride in them both. I speak to Matthew most days and I bet not many mothers of a 32 yr old can say that. Natalie lives close and I speak or see her most days.
They are one joy that has come from getting older and seeing them grow into fine adults.

Life throws me a few curve balls these days. Very bad arthritis and fibromyalgia have stopped much of what I used to do. Never a day passes without pain and my weight has increased due to lack of mobility. I try not to moan about it and I choose to be positive and get on with life in general.
I may not be rich in money but I am rich in love of a 34 year marriage to Kevin and love of my darling children. So I think life has been good to me and even if it is OMG I think I am getting old, I am still smiling.
