Around the time I add a year to my age, I find myself
taking stock or thinking about life a bit.
You know, the regrets, the wonderful moments.
So much to be grateful about.
I recently read one of those articles posted to fb that talked about women
"over fifty" and what they should or should not be doing. Most of it I take
with a grain of salt but I did appreciate their encouragement for women to
"dress their age." How beautiful an older woman can look when she is not
squeezed into a mini skirt or trying to look like a teenager. I loved
how Vanessa Redgrave dressed in Letters to Juliet.
While I continue to grow, and learn new ways,
I have figured out life a little by now--haven't we all?
Here's my list of things I hold in value for each day living:
Stretching and exercise
Time with God
Drinking lots of water
Eating no or little sugar, low carb, lots of veggies and fruit
Taking time to read a book
Writing notes of encouragement
Working with my hands
Looking outside myself for people who need help
("It is better to give than to receive")
Taking time to cook a nice meal,
set a pretty table, and sit down for dinner with my Gardener.
Don't go to bed late.
If I do all these, it's bound to be a good day.
