Accepting Life's Challenges

by Ann Stareyes   Apr 13, 2006

Life's coming together
Emotions smoothing out
Excepting things I can't change
Or do anything about.

Now as I look into the mirror
I'm beginning to like what I see
A beautiful older woman

A few more little wrinkles
Tells the story of my life
Finally I've seen the beauty
Now it won't cause me strife.

My heart remains the same
It could never change
Inside it's beautiful
No more tears to fall like rain.

This little journey I've taken
We all are going to face
But I've learned to accept
Life.... I'll forever chase.

Today I have a few more wrinkles
Thanking God for every single one
He's given me strength and courage
To age with Pride and Grace.
