Aches & Pains of Growing Old.

Good Morning, Friends.
In the last 2 days, I am experiencing pain & aches in my right arm. It just simply aches. The pain was so bad at 1:30am it woke me up! I took some PM medicine & went back to bed. Last night, my arm did not hurt if I kept it still.....but here's the funny part......Since I am awake, it aches when it simply is still. Weird.
The older I get the more I can feel all the pains of simply aging. I am getting more lines or wrinkles on my face. I am getting a ton of white hair (most people call it grey, but since I have red hair my "grey" hair is really white). Here's the kicker about aging: My Body is getting older, but I still think of myself as a 20-something year old. I heard several of my elderly family members and some elderly members at church who have said they were a Young Woman trapped in an old Ladies body.

Getting older is NOT fun, but gaining Wisdom with age is incredible.

What types of things have you noticed about yourself as you age?

Gray hair, achy joints, less stamina, saggy skin, skin is changing, spider veins, varicose veins and that's just for starters....
