Happy Monday Everyone...!


No post today, my friends! I'm going to take the day off...

Instead of a regular post, let me just ask you to do me a favor if you will! It's just a couple of small things that I guarantee will make your week seem a lot more fulfilled!

Find someone to hug! Doesn't have to be for any particular reason, you don't even have to say anything...just give someone a heartfelt hug!



Next, find some time today to gather with some of your friends! You know, just like we have coffee together in the mornings. Nothing can make you feel better than to know that your friends are there to help give you support if you need it! But remember, you need to be there to support your friends as well...after all, friends offering support to one another is what life's all about, isn't it?



Lastly, look around and see if your special friend, the one you don't ever have to doubt, the one who just knows when you need some closeness, the one who accepts you just the way you are...is anywhere close. If they are, then take the time to take their hand, smile a bit, and silently take a peaceful walk together!

That, my friend, is tonic for the soul!



Now, let's get some coffee and sit together for a bit...OK?

By the way, unclehermitjim, i read your previous post, re "women over forty"...wonderful time of my life, when i reached 48, and that's just this year.

it is at this point in time when both good and bad memories are well-taken, pains are considered lessons to be learned and mistakes, opportunities to grow...

i love being the "sandwich generation" , being daughter to my mom and mom to my daughter (yehey!)and learning lots from this. it teaches me to be more loving to old folks, and more understanding to the younger generation. when i see mom, i see where i'm going. when i see daughter, i see where i came from. isn't it wonder-full?!! blessings come in all forms, colors, sizes and shapes. at this age,it's just so beautiful to look back at life and heave a big sigh and thank God for everything, as in EVERYTHING past, and look forward and still remain grateful for whatever...at this age i continue to grow in beauty and wisdom...

let's have another cup of that great coffee you have there!

w.w.

Hey WW...
Always good to see you, my friend! I'm glad you are finally getting a bit of sunshine...and I hope that the coming storm is not as bad as the last!

You are at an interesting and ebjoyable time in your lie, indeed! It's important that you hol on to all that you learn from Mom and pass it on to daughter!

Often lessons learned at our mother's knee are the ones that guide us the truest in life!

Thanks so much for coming by!
