I glance in the mirror.
I like what I see.
I’m staring down fifty like a semi without any brakes.
I look this way and that, observing the years etched across my face.
Half Century looming…
Full life blooming.
I can’t look away.
The reflection knowingly smiles.
I grin back.
No rejection or disgust, a first.
Only acceptance and love; an honest appraisal.
A glance in the mirror.
I like who I see.

  1. Love this Meg… and what a lovely picture of you!

    As one who has tumbled over the other side of 50 it is great to be content and happy with who you are in God’s grace and what he’s doing in your life.
