257 Years of Experience.

Are you satisfied with the stage of life you are in? The reason I ask is I got a call from Mom today.  She wanted me to know she had gone to lunch with two of her lady friends and between the three of then they have 257 years of life experience.
I really don’t know what to say about that.  These three women have been through so many experiences, enjoying the loves of their lives, devastating losses, the joy and heartbreak of raising children, economic downturns and boons, think of all the technology they have encountered during this time, think of all the dinners they have prepared, how many times they have dusted the living room, how many times they have said, “I love you.”
Mom says her friends are leaving one by one, sometimes she wonders about being the last one to go.  Mom won’t have to worry about being the last friend to go as she has so many friends some decades younger than she.
At the end of the day these ladies are good friends who enjoy spending time with each other, talking about old times, they laugh about how much fun they are having with less responsibilities, and more free time to read and have lunch with friends.
For today they seem to be satisfied with the stage of life they are in. 
I am inspired by these wonderful women, they teach me to be the best I can be, that life is worth living at each stage, we are blessed with the ability to participate to engage others and make our mark on our little corner of influence, even if it is as simple as staying in touch with old friends and having a bite to eat.
