Yes, I am old! To be exact I am 77 years of age and oh, life has taught me so many lessons. I hope you will let me share bits and pieces of my life with you.
I have always been shy, quiet and somewhat plump. I love to bake, knit, crochet and eat. Speaking of eating, my mother said when I was a baby I was a wholesome child. A kind way of saying I was chubby. That has never changed! Maybe as you get to know me, you and I could even share a recipe or two but if not we could at least talk about food once in a while.
Recently widowed, I’m learning to walk the path of life without my husband of 57 years. Perhaps many of you have lost spouses and you know well what it is like to move forward on your own. I have learned that the grass does not cut itself nor does the snow automatically disappear from the sidewalk and I am learning that eating alone is no fun. I miss not having someone to say good morning to and kiss good night but I have many wonderful memories and I hope together we can take a walk down memory lane now and then.
I was fortunate to have three children; two daughters who live close by and a son whom I lost to cancer two years ago. Also, I have two beautiful grandchildren who help me keep their father’s memory alive and that’s another story.
I have never written a blog before so I hope you will bear with me. There is so much to talk about, I’m not sure where to begin. Perhaps we could just share a cup of coffee; I will have mine as I write and hopefully you will have yours as you read and most of all I hope this will become a regular meeting place for us.
Would love your feedback and I’ll try not to burst into tears if you have to tell me that I am not very good at this!!
Lastly I love to rhyme! I do not write poetry; to be honest my rhythm leaves much to be desired so I write in rhyme. I will end this with one of my little gems and if you need to take something for a headache afterwards I apologize.
Thank you folks for letting me become a part of your life
I hope I can bring a smile to you and melt away some strife
My humour is a little strange but my stories mostly true
And if I have a “Senior Moment” please be patient do
