I just didn’t realize it had already happened!
I was walking past a store the other day and I glanced into the window. I didn’t see what was on display in the window….….what I saw was the reflection of MY MOTHER staring back at me!
And NOT my mother in her heyday…….oh, nooooooo…...it was my children’s grandmother!
I guess it’s because I see my reflection on a daily basis that I don’t notice how much I’m aging but SHEESH…..to have it slap you in your face like that is startling to say the least!
Like the time my mother and aunt and I went out to dinner. As we entered the restaurant I needed to use the ladies room so she said they’d meet me in the bar. When I walked into the bar I looked around and all I saw were two little old white haired ladies. I started to walk away when it dawned on me those two little old ladies were my mother and aunt!!!
I was so used to seeing them on a daily basis, and thinking of them in their prime, I hadn’t noticed they had grown old.
And now it’s my turn…….lol.
