Silver Sage Or Over the Hill? (Part 3 of 3)


You might be a Silver Sage if …

o You no longer need a cup size because you wear a 38 long …

o You know the location of every bathroom between home and any other point on earth …

o You suddenly start noticing Depends ads and thinking they just might be a good idea …

o You look in the mirror and wonder who the woman with the wrinkles is … then realize with a start it is you …

o You grow a better goatee than your 20 year old son …

o You gave up laughing for Lent because you do not want to pay attention to the Depends ads …

o You buy your undergarments from a steel manufacturer rather than the lingerie store in the mall …

o You hear yourself say things like "it's hot in here, why are you wearing a winter coat?" when it is 28 degrees outside …

o You can fly without an airplane because you have your own set of batwings grown just for that task …

o Your kids actually listen to what you say and believe you just might know what you're talking about …

o People at the store are calling you, not your mom, "ma'm" …

o Your testosterone levels are so high and your estrogen so low, you can lift small buildings with one hand …

o You've contracted a severe case of ENS (Empty Nest Syndrome) …

o You have not a clue what its like to sleep through night without multiple visits to the "little girl's room" …

o You can walk away from your desk 2 different times and only remember, on the 3rd try, that you were headed to the bathroom …

o Your grandson looks at you with awe and says "grammy, why are there so many folds on your face? And, when you respond with" they're wrinkles ", he asks if it's OK to call you" Gramma Wrinkles ".. .

o Your 6 year old grandson is taking your picture with his new camera and is taking forever to take the shot. When you ask what is taking so long he says, "I'm trying to not show your scrubbles grammaw" …

So enjoy your status as a Silver Sage …

Revel in the gifts you are, the joy that is possible now that the hairstyle you're wearing or makeup line you're buying is no longer front and center in your day. Smile, knowing you can say "screw it" and stay in your jammies all day with no goop in your hair, with no guilt, or get dolled up and look like a million bucks because you now know it's your choice.

It is all your choice.

Ah, the freedom, the amazing freedom, that comes from being a Silver Sage.

Oh, by the way, the answer to the question "Am I a Silver Sage or over the hill"?

Why a Silver Sage, of course! I've earned it. So have you!

Go with love and light, hugs and blessings
