In less than an hour, our house will be filled with activity with three grandkids and our daughter and son-in-law. At some point, we will light up the carrot cake above where everybody including my son and family in Missouri will sing happy birthday over FaceTime. Then tomorrow will come when I know I'll have to recalibrate my thinking about my aging.
My wife and I joined AARP earlier this year because of the discounts. In the process of pawing through their website, I ran into their focus on disrupting thinking about getting older. I'm attracted to what it has to say. Makes sense and it's an encouragement.
Meanwhile, I'm getting ready for a seven-year-old grandson who wants to blow up a bottle of dietCoke using Mentos, a 15 month old grandson who's in continual motion and an almost five-year-old granddaughter who has a curiosity that keeps her reading and asking questions.
