Aging Fabulously...Young at Heart...The Tale of my Bunco Group

It's a funny thing this growing older business.  In the day-to-day I scarcely notice it.  But when there's a big gap in between things, the changes are always more evident.  Case in point...I'm so very lucky to be a part of a group of women who all met when our kids started elementary school.  That was about twelve years ago.  At first we got together monthly to play Bunco...then a little less often...until these days when our schedules keep us super busy and life pulls us in a million directions and we see each other as a group once a year.

When we first started we were a bunch of risk takers, young moms, eager to be out and kid free for an evening.  Singing our hearts out, dancing on tables, and, well, Vegas rules, darlin'.  We'd stay up late and worry not a bit about how we'd feel the next day.

These days?  We talk about our children going to college...or not.  We talk about our ailments.  We talk about our parents who are leaving us one by one.  We talk about what elates us, and what give us pause.  We dance on the floor where there's minimal risk of falling.  We definitely think about how we might feel the next day.  And we talk about how very much we love bedtime...yes, we talked about our mattresses and how much support they offer.

And all I have to say is I totally love us...young in years or young at heart.
