We do most of our grocery shopping at Top Foods, and I have noticed that they have the best shopping music playing. Many times I just can’t help myself from bopping along as I’m pondering the brand of olive oil to choose, or trying to remember if I need green beans. Being fifty has given me the freedom to dance in the grocery store if I feel like it.
Sometimes I don’t feel like I’m fifty, in fact sometimes the inner me still feels like a child. Yet I can remember a handful of times in my life when I distinctly had the feeling that I was an adult. Here is a list of a few of those times.
- Sitting in the backyard of the first home I bought all by myself realizing that I owned it
- When Gerry and I bought our first “real” bedroom set. It’s solid wood and a classic design that I absolutely love. It’s made for adults only!
- Holding my baby granddaughter for the first time
- Receiving word that my Mom had died
How about you? What moments in your life made you feel like a grown up?
