This blog is my baby. It was my first blog and has a place in my heart. As life moved on I got away from blogging regularly and finally I stopped posting here at all. So much time has passed, life changes, I lost my Mom in January yet here I am today posting again. This year Lord willing I will turn 65. Woo Hoo!!!! To you young folks that probably sounds ancient. Perhaps but I’m happy as heck to be here. I still have a lot of goals and ideas and maybe I will fulfill some of them this year! I can’t promise to do this daily but you will here from me more regularly! Happy March! I’ll let you know when spring has really sprung. The darn groundhog that eats my garden will be seen soon. Then we know it’s spring!
I am not a football fan. There I’ve said it. The Super Bowl was on but I couldn’t tell you much about it. I enjoyed some of the commercials though. I did focus though on how excited people were about the game. In 2012 I figure that anything that gets our attention and isn’t negative can’t be all bad. So my suggestion is look for things to celebrate. Kid gets a good grade make cupcakes. Husband/Wife gets a new part/full time job – may not be your dream but it’s progress- make a special dinner. Anyones birthday, celebrate. Get the picture. Life it truly short and besides, I like a good party. How about you?
All I can say is that I’m blessed. Family was here for my 60th Birthday and even though they were only here over night I am always happy to see. It’s one of those days when I can only say be thankful for what you have. Hope you had a good weekend!
So I turned sixty today! That even amazes me. So here is sixty years of wisdom. Don’t look back. You can’t relive the past, and quiet as its kept as they say, you can’t change it! Let it go and concentrate on today. There is so much left to do and thinking about what you didn’t do just gets in the way. I am thinking about my next knitting/crochet project and what I can make for the kids for the holidays. I’m thinking about taking a class and there is always my teaching. So look in the direction you’re moving and make sure that’s forward.
At my age I’m happy to be able to get out of bed and get moving quickly. For many of you that doesn’t seem like much but folks my age and older get it.
Yesterday a helicopter crashed in the Hudson River in New York City and a young woman celebrating her 40th birthday died. Her father celebrating his 71st birthday survived. I felt sad when I heard it and of course her family and friends must be overcome with grief. It was my reminder that we don’t know how long we are going to be here. So don’t wait for birthday’s, anniversaries, graduations, weddings, I could go on.
Find something to celebrate today. Woke up, yeah! Didn’t kill your annoying boss, glass of wine at dinner, yeah! Baby used the potty and not the floor, yeah! You can read my silly post, yeah!
