I have found that I am not the only person of my age that feels this way and I have to forgive myself when I forget a birthday or something else that won't make the difference of night or day in someone else's life. I don't ever want to intentionally hurt someone but that does happen on occasion as well.
I have determined, getting older is not for the weary and working takes most of my energy and I could be content to just be home at night although that rarely happens. We are always on the goal and I have lost sight of my dear friends as our paths no longer go in the same direction but once in awhile we can reconnect. So I guess in the meantime, I need to let go of the superfulous and looke to what is significant and counts and concentrate. In the interim you will probably find me laughing at myself as I go into a room to do something and forgot what I was going to do. I am the funniest thing going these days, and I will continue to make it a great day! S
