So, yesterday was my birthday, and it's becoming obvious to me that I'm losing my senses.

Literally.

I'm having a hard time hearing what God is saying.

I'm not able to clearly see reasons for things I do.

I can't feel as much as I used to, but what I DO feel well are aches and pains.

I used to anticipate tomorrow like the taste of something sweet but now everything has the taste of humus.

I do still have a keen sense of smell, however. In fact, today I can smell my attitude...and it stinks.

Life should not knock you senseless, do you think?

i understand. i wonder if i'll ever get that back again. now, i want to live as long as my girls need me ... which is as long as they live, though that is unlikely to be the case. still, kids need their momma's and daddy's when they are growing up and when they're adults. so i find peace in living to be there for my girls as they enter womanhood, hopefully find husbands, have babies. i wish my mom and dad had been there for me, and they never were. i want to be there for mine.

but it's not the same as the anticipation of youth. somewhere along the path, that has disipated.
