Some days I feel like the luckiest person in the world.
I try to live every day in gratitude
for my life as it is TODAY,
right now,
in this very moment.
I'm retired at 69 and still paying my bills (barely).
I've been married forever (FIFTY TWO YEARS!)
to the man of my dreams (most days),
my high school sweetheart.
My 3 children are all grown,
as happy and as healthy as I could make them.
(So sad to add that my dear younger son, Patrick, 50, father of my three grands, died in November 2020 after battling colon cancer for four years.)
I finally became a grammy in 2009!
Now we have three little darlings.

I just sold my beautiful second home on the sweet island of Anguilla and moved from a little condo back to a three bedroom house (up-sized!)

I LOVE to exercise and meditate.
I also love to eat and drink!
Time to get rid of these extra 50 pounds that have crept up on me in the last 20 -30 years of living the good life.

    A brave son -- and a very very brave mother!! I would have been terrified for sure: as I am when I think about my own son's far north bush pilot job. But they don't listen to us, do they???

    Thanks for all the lovely comments on various photos. Yes, I do believe that I am getting younger!! I feel incredible. Better than when I was in my 30's! I attribute it to weight loss, mediation, and positive thinking, as in, not complaining (much! LOL!), not jumping to conclusions or the worst possible outcome, refraining from knee jerk reactions to life and taking a beat to consider the positive aspects of any given condition, ALSO lots of time outdoors.
    Yeah, those glasses are totally retro, eh? My mom and granny wore glasses shaped like mine, but back in the 60's they were more ornate (carved roses in the metal), and not pink!
