Getting Older


by Cheryl Dunkley

Life is a crazy scramble

Love the days when we can just amble.

Groceries, appointments, repairs, family, and friends,

Shovel the driveway, the ‘to do’ list never ends!

Everything takes longer,

I used to be stronger.

Can’t remember what I missed….

Oh, that wasn’t even on the list.

Calm down, rest, and pray.

Think of your accomplishments each and every day.
