In history the Middle Age is a period characterized by the fall of a great empire, merging of ideologies, and an age of discovery. I believe it is a fitting way to capture the experience of living as a middle aged person. A few years ago my mother in-law told me that I was in the “prime” of my life. At first I didn’t quit get it. However, as the years continue to pass by, I am fully awake. Now this is one of the little nuggets of truth that I have held on to tightly. She was telling me that I won’t get any younger, that my body will start to ache and have limits, that time and energy are at a premium, that tomorrow is not promised, so make the best of today.
