The Gift Of Years

Excerpt from the book entitled:  The Gift Of Years Author: Joan Chittister 
A few words on growing old gracefully;

As for old age, embrace and love it 
It abounds with pleasure 
if you know how to use it 
The gradually declining years 
are among the sweetest in life...

Even when they have reached 
their extreme limit, 
they have their pleasure still.

    I always tell people I'm at the age now where I can say anything to anyone and have experienced a life that can back it up....A question my poetic friend.. How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?
