Someday If We Are Lucky…

….we will get to grow old and grey, like Mary Maxwell…

May your ‘old age’ be filled with laughter.   

 

 

Blessed In Aging

 

~Esther Mary Walker

 

Blessed are they who understand

My faltering step and shaking hand

Blessed, who know my ears today

Must strain to hear the things they say.

Blessed are those who seem to know

My eyes are dim and my mind is slow

Blessed are those who look away

When I spilled tea that weary day.

Blessed are they who, with cheery smile

Stopped to chat for a little while

Blessed are they who know the way

To bring back memories of yesterday.

Blessed are those who never say

“You’ve told that story twice today”

Blessed are they who make it known

That I am loved, respected and not alone.

And blessed are they who will ease the days Of my journey home, in loving ways.
