We check the milestones usually at each decade; some are more difficult to embrace than others.
At ten years old we believe we are big stuff! We have the world by its tail!
Twenty takes us out of the teen age years. Time for serious thought.
Thirty is usually a tough and thorny mile stone and often a depressing Birthday to celebrate! We are expected to act more matured now!!
At age forty we can be 39 for the next ten years!
Fifty is the time AARP invites us to become a “Senior Citizen,” and often there are discounts allowed for certain pleasures.
Sixty is the time we approach retirement and (hopefully) expect to slow down a bit. However, I sought a new career at age 60 and embarked back into the world of business to work another 10 years.
Seventy is very close to the allotted time that God says he has given to us for our days. I have joked that possibly at this age, I may be officially considered an “old lady.” NO, said one of my friends at church, 70 is still young.
Eighty is a rather large number and I cautiously approach it. However in my spirit I am still young although my body does not always agree.
Some may reach 90 and even 100. Certainly, milestones indeed
The Bible tells us that as our days, so shall our strength be, and I am claiming that scripture for myself. Body, soul and Spirit !!
Long life to you all, and may you enjoy good health, happiness and the treasures of many friends and loved ones all of your Birthday celebrations.
