Getting Old Comes With A Price



I am not complaining about getting old....getting older is a privilege in my opinion. However, it comes with a price. I watch as my loved ones drift away. I watch from a distance as they grow and move on without me.

I have watched my loved ones die. Unable to help them. Unable to understand why they have to go.

I am learning how to live without them. I am trying to find a new "normal". The hole they left in myr world will never and can never be filled.

For me, I am no longer a daughter, I am an orphan.

I am no longer a Mom, I am just a mother. 

I am no longer a wife, I am now a widow. 

So, while I am thankful for getting older, I do realize it comes with a price.
