OK, this sums up what I’ve been experiencing and thinking for the last few years…

“How do you like being ignored, overlooked, undervalued — invisible?

Do you find it hilarious that young people think they invented sex?

Are you angry that so much of what you know, what you worked for your whole life, what you’ve accomplished, is now disregarded?

Just how much do you miss cute shoes?

Are you unnerved because most of your life is behind you?

Do you relate at all to the word “elderhood?” Beware — it’s coming soon from the mouth of a medical professional near you.”


Watch for it! About the time you hit your late 60’s!

I’m still fighting it!

      It hit hard in 2014.I had just spent 6 years taking care of my parents in my home. My mom had just died as they both had, in my home. They didn’t want home health, just me to care for them. I did. I guess I missed the ‘moving away’ of my grandchildren and my daughter. But suddenly it hit and hard.

      Just yesterday I was reading this blog and the author said almost the same thing I said in my poem: “Nice but irrelevant”

      Gotta find ways to deal with this new plateau.

      Hubby feels it too. So we enjoy each other and our friends at church. We’re happy. We both know how relevant we have been in our family’s lives, even if they don’t.
