How old do you feel inside? Have you thought of exactly how old you feel today? Are you the age you really are today, deep down inside? 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.” So matter of factly, I never forgot. I actually have a photo of the time we had this conversation. These pictures are about the age I feel right now.
I guess it could be worse… I talk a lot about our inner child. Maybe this is stretching it a bit… But as weird as it may sound, I remember laying on this counter! I know… freaky… huh? I remember getting baths in that sink too! Of course I was 14… just kidding! But I do remember!
I’ve been told I dwell too much on the past… Ya think? Okay perhaps something a little more recent might be more appropriate…Okay, well maybe not… this baby is now ten years old… lets try again for something more recent….To be honest… still not quite recent… but this is as good as it gets for now!
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!

And the last one is… by a friend from church and yet someone I haven’t had the pleasure to personally get to know until we bonded wiith our writing. She is my Cyber buddy who I feel I know so well in her blogs and yet am looking forward to getting to know on a greater level in reality as well. Follow her as she updates you in her own struggles and triumphs as she shares her life and faith!
