My thought for the day . . .

. . . comes from writer, Anne Lamott who said: "Age has given me what I was looking for my entire life. It gave me me. It provided the time and experience and failures and triumphs and friends who helped me step into the shape that had been waiting for me all my life . . . I not only get along with me most of the time now, I am militantly and maternally on my own side."

Wishing you all a great day.

I'm going to keep this. It's just the words I need to think about as I feel myself dreading the ever-closer creep of middle age.
