Getting Older

This morning as I was getting ready to go to church I noticed something on my head that I think I have been ignoring. What was this novelty? Apparently there are a lot more grey hairs on my head then I had been willing to admit to. As I combed my hair it was looking more salt and peppery than just plain peppery.

Why did I notice the grey hairs more today? I think part of it may be that I turned 53 on Friday. Don't get me wrong. I have known for some time that the grey hairs were coming in, it just didn't register that more grey hairs were replacing the dark hairs that fell out then dark hairs growing back in.

Here's why I am putting this in my "I Am a Work in Progress" blog. I'm okay with all those grey hairs that are coming in. I'm okay with maturing and "getting older". Some of those grey hairs I've worked hard to get by going through times of trials and testing, health and mental issues and spiritual growth and spiritual break downs.

The most important thing in all of this is that I am still moving forward. Some times I slip back a couple of steps but as long as I keep taking more steps forward and catch myself before I slip too far back, I know I am making progress and that's what counts in the long run.

I hope you have a blessed day.
