Recently I was at the celebration of a nonagenarian! Yes, not a birthday party but truly a celebration because not many people reach the age of 90.
I searched my memory for another person of the same age and I couldn't!!
What is it like to be 90? If my Aunt Therese Fitzgerald is anyone to go by, then it must be wonderful. I watched her sitting so beautiful and poised at the main table and saw how she enjoyed all the family and friends surrounding her. The love and energy in the room was tangible.
I wonder what goes on in the mind of someone at that age. I see others, some even younger, in the Nursing Home who are physically and mentally challenged. Aunt Therese is still alert and shows a keen interest in everyone and everything. Is this the secret?
I don't know if I will even see 90 but if I do, I hope that I will have kept my mind intact and still be able to recognise all my loved ones. I also hope that I will have the ageless beauty and serenity of Therese Fitzgerald
A long way to go.........
