I had trouble deciding on what to do for today's topic for - Sweet November photo challenge. The word for today is "old". My house is full of old items - many that are very special to me. Richard suggested a number of things, but nothing seemed to be what I wanted. Lily was over last night and showed me her fingernails and as I looked at my hand holding onto hers - I was reminded of when my nephew was around Lily's age . . . and asked my mom why her hands were so old.
My mom still laughs about that . . .
So . . . even though I do not consider myself old - this was the photo I decided to go with. It makes me remember my own grandma's hands, it reminds me how quickly time passes and that we need to cherish
every day . . . and it reminds me that I only get to grow old one time. I am going to enjoy it.
There is no old age.
There is, as there always was, just you.
