getting older

Just when did I become the older woman??
Don't get me wrong, I like being a know-it-all. But when people start coming to me for advice, that means I've arrived somewhere, and I'm afraid to name the place. Sure, my hair is coming back in grey. Yes, I have 7 children. That's my husband retiring as of Jan 1.
But! Sputter, cough. I'm only 32! I *can't* be the older woman teaching the younger ones.

Hi, Misty! Hi, Marline! Love you guys. I'm glad to help, really. I'm just gonna have to get over not being the young one in the group anymore.

It's not that you're older.

But whenever you've done something that someone else hasn't yet done, then you become an expert on it. :-)

I have older people ask me for photography advice on a regular basis, computer advice, etc.

You happen to have a few particular areas of obvious expertise. :-)

You're not that old. Believe it or not you're only 4 years older than me. I just waited a long time to get pregnant and am completely oblivious of all things baby related.

I appreciate your advice more than you know and if wisdom means you're old than so be it.

Thank you!!! :-)
