My wish for growing older

Jamie Riddler posted a wishcasting question on her blog today and I thought it was intriguing....

How do you wish to grow older?

There are a few things that immediately come to mind.  I want to grow older with more patience and laughter.  Right now, those things are inextricably linked.  I think that if you can laugh more, both at yourself and the situations life presents you, then you can stretch your patience and things don't feel like they are gnawing at you as much.

I want to grow older and be more creative.  I really wouldn't mind being an old lady shuffling through the grocery store with bits of thread or paper on my shirt just because I was so absorbed in a project.  Right now, being a mama, my job, my relationship and my to-do list take up the majority of space in my day and I think more about my creative wishes than I do spending time to execute, so that is definitely something I want to change.

I also want to grow older with a continued sense of curiosity and adventure.  When I retire (or before that time if I can figure out how to swing it), I want to drive around the U.S. in an old RV.  I want it to be all decked out in crazy colors and contain old, silly pottery that we find at country road flea markets.  I've had this dream for a long time, and I guess with that is the wish to grow older in good health so that I can do the things that I want to do.
