I’ve been thinking about birthdays because I have several good friends who have March and April birthdays, including my friend Sandra, who is celebrating her 91st birthday.
In a book I bought for Sandra—90 and Proud of It, I found this quote from Doris Lessing: “The great secret that all old people share is that you really haven’t changed….Your body changes, but you don’t change.”
I’ve been thinking about that quote. I hope that I am changing—that I am growing a bit wiser! But, I hope that, in other ways, I don’t change.
