Sagging Eyelids, Too?

Okay, I've got another little thing to deal with about growing older. The problem now is sagging eyelids. They're drooping so much that I'm thinking it won't be too long before they blur my eyesight! I know everything else sags but, please, does it have to include my eyelids?!!

I can use a little dark eye shadow to try and hide the eyelid landslide but that doesn't help the fact that they are about to cover my eyes. I knew your eyesight got worse as you got older. I just never realized it was because your eyelids had slipped!

Aside from plastic surgery, I don't really know what to do. Since I can't afford that, I have to come up with another way to solve my problem.

I did consider propping them up with toothpicks but nixed that idea. Too painful.

I bought some crazy glue the other day. Maybe I could put a dab on the top of my eyelid, pull the sagging part up and connect them. Only problem is, I'm afraid I'll wind up with permanently open eyes. Then I'll have another problem!

So, I'll let them sag. When they get down past my eyes, I guess I can read standing on my head. That way they won't get in the way. This old age business is a real challenge!

Life is full of challenges no matter what our age. Yours may be more extreme than sagging eyelids.

Here's some wonderful news. God is with us in every challenge, no matter how great or small!

Some days I rise above my challenges with confidence. I think God and I can conquer anything! Other days, I wonder if God has forgotten me. Oh, deep down I know he hasn't. But, the challenges seems heavier, harder to bear. I question if I'll be able to rise above them. God is faithful. I survive that day, and the next, and the next . . . just like he knew I could. So can you!

Thankful for a God who is with me in all my challenges, Gloria
