How old do you feel today?
Deep down inside, do you feel the age you really are?
Once my grandma asked me “How old do you think I feel inside?”
She was about 73 when she asked me that question,
I said “I don’t know grandma, how old do you feel inside?”
And she said. “Seventeen” in such a matter of fact way that I never forgot.
Maybe not this far back!! But I do remember baths in that nearby sink and a lot more things that most don’t remember so early in life.
In my lifetime, I have realized that a lesson is worth nothing unless you pass it on. My blog is a lot about learning lessons. Some I am still learning, some I would like to share with others.
I also feel that we all are going through stuff. And sometimes we feel as if we are the only ones. The truth is, we are not alone. There is always someone who will understand. Sometimes in the least expected places!
My goal for this blog is to touch one person at a time… to not try to be at the top of some search engine or to make a lot of money off of marketing gizmos. To just have the opportunity to share, to reach out and be able to reach back. To understand and not judge.
I have been through divorce and remarriage, deaths and births, empty nests and financial set backs, faith ponders and revelations and a lot of other midlife crisisey stuff in-between and I am here to say that it was all survivable! Join me on my journey…. as I write one word , one page, one chapter, at a time.
I have a little story…. of my own… a little more about me… that will help you know a part of my journey where I have come from… but I didn’t want to bombard you all at once… though someday, if you have a minute…click here to get to know me a little better….
And thanks for taking your time to get to know me!
Another blog I wanted to share is my daughter’s and all her whimsical wonderfulness she has done a 180 from her old blog & changed to: http://www.fernandbone.wordpress.com. UPDATE: she has since moved to another blog, instagram… @blynndarwin Tik Tok under the same.
in planning her wedding she discovered her love for mismatched china and in collecting it for her own wedding she fell into a little business and named it Fern and Bone!
(UPDATE: August 2017) By the way…. I have recently been asked to write more…. (I used to write a lot more frequently) but when I first started this blog, I really was writing for me… To just get it out because I had to! For those of you who are writers, I know you understand. I didn’t even know how to get other people to read my stuff and back then, when I first started this blog, don’t know if I wanted anybody to read my ramblings. But some how you guys have found me and I am blessed because of it!
sooo… my reason for this update is that, I have begun to journey back into other writer’s blogs and go through the backdoor into their archives and have found a lot of great posts. I actually have about 400 of my own posts so if I haven’t posted anything recently, feel free to go into my archives! I love to hear people’s thoughts on my early writings and appreciate the time you take when you go through my back door! Thank you for finding me and taking the time to join me on my journey! I am blessed by everyone of you!
