Life is a Journey…come along for the ride.

S M 2 la gordadonexxI recently met a guy who I have gotten to be friends with on FaceBook. He told me that he was so excited to meet me because he loved all my posts. My husband, Fred, and I had just gotten back from a 6-month driving tour of Mexico. I posted some of this on my blog, and lots of it on FaceBook. He told me that he was “getting older and not too happy with that” but that I made him realize that it might not be so bad. (He is in his early 50’s, I am almost 72.) It hit me that there aren’t that many role models for successfully adding the years to life and life to the years. While I write about all sorts of things in my blog, my first and foremost mission on both my blog and in my life is to enjoy myself and other people, keep on learning, do what I can to look and feel good, and just have fun. So, yes, that YOUNG man’s comment really made my day. And, it also made me realize that I can, in fact, not only enjoy this journey but bring others along with me. So, here is 71, going on 72, and it just gets better. Come along for the ride.

  1. You really have inspired me and have made me look at things differently and I thank you for that. I will continue to look to you as an example of what life can and should be.
