To my friends:

I would never trade my amazing friends, my

wonderful life, my loving family for less gray hair or a

flatter belly. As I've aged, I've become kinder to myself,

and less critical of myself. I've become my own friend. I don't

chide myself for eating that extra cookie, or for not making my

bed, or for buying that silly cement gecko that I didn't

need, but looks so avante garde on my patio. I am entitled to a

treat, to be messy, to be extravagant.

I have seen too many dear friends leave this world too soon;

before they understood the great freedom that comes with aging.

Whose business is it if I choose to read or play on the computer

until 4 AM and sleep until noon? I will dance with myself to

those wonderful tunes of the 60 &70 ' s, and if I, at the

same time, wish to weep over a lost love ... I will.

I will walk the beach in a swim suit that is stretched over a

bulging body, and will dive into the waves with abandon if I

choose to, despite the pitying glances from the jet set.

They, too, will get old.

I know I am sometimes forgetful.

But there again, some of life is just as well forgotten. And I

eventually remember the important things.

Sure, over the years my heart has been broken.

How can your heart not break when you lose a loved one,

or when a child suffers, or even when somebody's beloved

pet gets hit by a car?

But broken hearts are what give us strength and understanding and

compassion. A heart never broken is pristine and sterile and

will never know the joy of being imperfect.

I am so blessed to have lived long enough to have my hair turning

gray, and to have my youthful laughs be forever etched into

deep grooves on my face.

So many have never laughed, and so many have died before their

hair could turn silver.

As you get older, it is easier to be positive. You care less about

what other people think. I don ' t question myself anymore.


I've even earned the right to be wrong.

So, to answer your question, I like being old. It has set me free.

I like the person I have become. I am not going to live

forever, but while I am still here, I will not waste time

lamenting what could have been, or worrying about what will be.

And I shall eat dessert every single day(if I feel like it).

MAY OUR FRIENDSHIP NEVER COME APART ESPECIALLY WHEN IT ' S STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART!

MAY YOU ALWAYS HAVE A RAINBOW OF SMILES ON YOUR FACE AND IN YOUR HEART FOREVER AND EVER! FRIENDS FOREVER!
