"You are never too old or set a new goal or to dream a new dream." - C.S. Lewis
It is easy at this stage of my life to believe myself too old to try something new, to dream something new. And isn't that sad?
When did I decide that "it's all over for me?" I don't know. Maybe it happened along the same time that gravity took over my body, sending all its parts southward. Maybe it happened when I realized that my role as full-time mother was finished and I had been relegated to the sidelines in parenting.
Once again, I don't know.
And then I watched our church's General Conference a few years back where President Monson spoke about moving forward. President Monson is in his mid 80s. He is a remarkable man who never fails to leave me inspired by his words. "Move forward."
Okay. I admit it. I'm not always moving forward. Sometimes I'm taking several giant steps backward. But then I pick myself up and try again.
Joy for today: moving forward.
