Here are my responses:
When it is hot, I feel like I am melting. But, thanks to menopause, I also have really cold cold flashes. So, I get to be cool for a few minutes each day.
I am looking forward to something really big this month. I have waited for years for this. Drum roll, please!
My little sister, the youngest of my parents’ children, will turn 50! Being the good big sister that I am, I am going to make sure she doesn’t forget this one. Haha
The theme song of my life…Hmm, I am going to have to ponder this one a bit. One thing’s for sure, it wouldn’t be My Way. This version of Elvis singing brings tears to my eyes. It was recorded the year that he died.
Our kids turned us on to the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic series. I think one of the songs performed by Twilight Sparkle says a lot about how I’ve felt over the course of my life. Well, except for the whole princess bit. I’ve never felt like a princess.
There is no such thing as a life without sorrow and grief. It touches all of our lives, to some degree, at some point.
We need to get over this whole “be over it in two weeks” mindset. It takes longer than two weeks for a broken leg to heal, so why shouldn’t a broken heart take longer? If you have lost someone you love, and you truly loved them, you will be living with this loss for the rest of your life. Being expected to be over it in two weeks is a bunch of hooey.
Our daughter Maggie has a new blog for her furbaby Martha. You can find it at: Martha’s Daily Mews.
Have a blessed weekend, y’all!
