Sunset

Sunset.


  
Sunset is the theme over at Every-inchie-Monday.  I didn't think of palm trees waving through orange-pink backgrounds or lavender clouds sailing across hot pink skies.  I thought of an older woman.  As the numbers of my age grow higher, I know what  kind of older woman I'd like to be.  One who can look back and laugh.  One who can look forward and smile.  One who's not afraid of who she's become.  And one who's not afraid to stretch out her arms to welcome the sunset of her life.

I am so excited to get such positive feedback on my sunset inchie. Most importantly however, I'm happy how several of you felt a connection with it.
Thanks for your comments. They mean a lot to me.
