A Blessing We Rarely Consider — Delilah’s Reflections

ThinkStock

It’s hard to go day in and day out without being in fear of getting older.

However, Delilah explains that maturity is a blessing we often take for granted but that we should be thankful for every day.

Earlier this week I had a listener call in who didn’t want to go to bed because in the morning she would wake up another year older. This got me thinking…as I approach another birthday, I realize I can live in the fear of getting older, or I can live in the delight of things I have overcome and achieved. I watch my kids growing up and think of how many experiences they have ahead of them still – some good, some challenging. And it makes me think…how grateful I am I don’t have to do that again!

Every single day, every new year, and every new decade will bring its own trials and triumphs.  Be thankful for all of it, because every new experience adds a piece of armor to your life, equipping you with the wisdom and strength to take on what comes next. To put it simply, maturity is a blessing we often take for granted. Something to think about as you conquer another week.

~ Delilah
