“Age is just a number…… “


Recently,  as Alan and I were walking to the entrance of the grocery store,  we noticed the familiar red  bucket and person ringing the bell, at the front of the store. As I have written in a previous blog post, we always hold hands, so as Alan took his other hand and reached in his pocket to get out a donation for the red bucket… IT happened.

As Alan dropped the donation into the red bucket, the nice man looked at us and said, “You two are the second elderly couple that I have seen holding hands today.”

Shocked, we looked at each other, stopped in our steps and said, “How old do you think we are?” Good thing we have a sense of humor. You see, I am 56 and Alan is 58. Not elderly.

The man looked so embarrassed and really didn’t know what to say. We laughed and he laughed. Of course, we had to keep chatting about the incident.

We are blessed to remember that “age is just a number”.  So, if you see us and you think we are older, that is okay. Our hair is thinning and gray.

Yet, even if we look older, we will always be kids at heart. Kids who love to laugh at the simplest joys in life and find pleasure in simple everyday blessings from God.

Blessings of laughter, holding hands, meeting people in the parking lot at the grocery store, and things like me asking “Where are my reading glasses?” and realizing they are on the top of my head. Yes, the simple things in life.

Have a blessed day and find something to laugh about,

  1. Oh, that poor man was probably mortified. You’re right, Mimi, age is only a number. I feel better at 51 years old than I did in my early 20’s and 30’s when I was dealing with health issues. Any day we’re able to get out of bed and walk across the room…we’re young! Enjoy your day!

  2. Oh dear! This is kind of funny… Mr. Misty often gets confused for being Misty Nana’s husband… Oops! He’s getting gray, she looks pretty good for 70, but I would never confuse it. LOL. By the way, thanks for stopping by our blog today, it was great to see you!
