Sixty years of Wisdom


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.

Find Something to Celebrate Today


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!

Happy Wednesday.

It’s Friday – I’m Still Here


I am afraid I don’t have anything inspirational to say today. Not feeling particularly well. I do feel however that I should say something here every day. Today I am just putting one foot in front of the other, hopeful that tomorrow will be a better day. Don’t get me wrong I am happy every day I can navigate on my own knowing how precious that is. I don’t take it for granted. Even when I’m not particularly chipper, I’m grateful. Let’s see what tomorrow brings.
