Today is the Day - By Linda Sage
As the glimmer of morning sun shines through the blinds and I start to uncurl under the duvet, one eye opens then the second, the brain links into gear what day is it??? The start of a new day, new challenges and new mountains to climb. As I make my way to the bathroom and meet myself in the mirror, but all I see is my mum looking back at me!!! Where did all those wrinkles come from? The bags under the eyes have turned into suitcases!!! Even the jowls have started to form; I don’t remember getting this old. Somebody must have put a curse on me overnight and when I find my magic wand everything will be back to normal.
Getting in and out of the shower I am not quite as agile as I was, so use the slip map (just in case), but are they not just for “old people”??? I now need to lean against a wall to wash my feet, (must have been very strong vino last night!!) Wrapping myself in a bath towel, coz the size of the modern towels are smaller than they used to be, I can enjoy a rest on the bed, before getting dressed. Choosing the clothes carefully, I then find a lose button on the skirt, so finding the needle and cotton, I spend 10 mins trying to thread the needle, then decide I will wear something else. By the time I have finished pushing, pulling, buttoning and zipping I am ready for a cuppa!!
These floors are so cold, must remember my slippers (which are a nice florescent orange, so I can’t lose them!!) The cat is excited by this time thinks he may get fed, so kettle on (remember I can’t have 2 things on in the kitchen or the electric blows!), cat fed and watered then I can take my breakfast into the lounge on a tray, these days I seem to spill things a lot more than I did, it is easier to wash a tray than to get down and mop up marks on the floor.
I sit down and pick up a book, but have to look for my glasses before I can read it, the mobile phone rings and I know it is somewhere, by the time I get up, find my handbag and rummage through the call has ended, it has only taken me two months to learn how to use a new phone; at least now I know who has called!!!
Ready now to face the world, I unlock the doors to get out, relock them, only to find by the time I get to the car I have left the car keys on the table indoors!!! So back and repeat the whole security bit!!! By the time I get into the car to go to start a day’s work I feel as if I have done ten rounds with Ali.
We often take life for granted and the passing of time, so coming to terms with new eras in our lives is not always easy. We all assume that we will be here tomorrow and we will have all our faculties just as we did when we were 20, 30 etc, but time does take its toll, so making the most of everyday and everyone around us is very important.
How often are we grateful for all of what we do have, and say “Thank you” to our friends or spouse for just being there? it is all too easy to look at what we don’t have or what we have lost. So, even if my mum does look back at me from the mirror, I have a lot to be thankful for, she was a very fine person, and if I can be that person then I have not done too badly.
How many things do you take for granted that you should be thankful for? Bet the list is longer than you except it to be………..
