I Can See Clearly Now

By, Nan Claire Falkner

Looking up and rubbing her eyes, Martha knew she was going to have to get some readers soon. She couldn’t read all the words and they squiggled back and forth. “Getting older is NOT for the old – we don’t cope very well with the changes. Yesterday I was young and vibrant and now I have wrinkled hands and a body to match. For a while, she was back in her youth reminiscing about the “Good Ole Days”. The silence was broken by a pint sized boy who said “Grandma, let’s go play!” She smiled. These are good ole days too!

    • Tannille, you are exactly right. Thank goodness too! Enjoying each stage of life is paramount to a satisfying and positive experience of living! Thanks for reading and commenting on my story!

    • Thank you Rochelle. The longer we live, the more we learn! Life is fun! There are bad and sad times and everyone has some rain in their lives and if we didn’t have some bad times, we wouldn’t know when we are having great times. Enjoy it !

  1. Sadly being comfortable in senior years is being challenged these days. Then again perhaps it always has been. You have got me thinking🙂

  2. Grandma may have difficulty reading, she can certainly play. Why not ask the little pint sized kid to read for her a little?
