My daughter is 41 years old!!!
Which, by my calculations,
makes me a touch older,
truth be told.
It seems unlikely….and yet…there it is —
I am in a new age category, and gee whiz
though I feel grateful as I write this text
because I like seeing what will happen next
I’m also kind of a ‘fraidy cat
so I peek around the corner to see where I’m at
and although nothing is ever quite crystal clear
it turns out I’m standing, still standing right here
in the middle
of the beginning
of the rest of my life
A good place to be
