Joining In




I am way behind on the Encyclopedia of Me Meme that BellaDia has launched, but I was out of town and I do want to participate in this fun.
I am going to just Amble through A today. Some of my favorite things begin with A:Acorns, Asparagus and Artichokes. Oh, and not to forget that I also love Avocados.
I am Amazed at the following: The Abundance that is present in my life...family, good friends, space and time now to not be scheduled, my home that I love so much, the beauty that surrounds me every day, my health and so many blessings too numerous to count! I am Amazed to be the Age I am. How in the world did I get here? How did I Arrive at this stage in my life when it seems like only yesterday I was jumping rope, climbing trees and playing jacks. Only yesterday I finished school, got married, had babies and turned 30, then 40, then 50 and more. Here I am in Astonishment. Here I am getting Attention from AARP, from the Neptune Crematorium Society, from the Afterglow Funeral Home!!! I don't feel that Aged. I still Ask questions, I still don't know the Answers. I'm still Absurd at times and I am still taken Aback by this Adventure that is my life. Amen!

Best!

Dearest Ellen,
IT WAS yesterday that you were jumping rope and playing jacks!! Geesh, does the word Alzheimers ring a bell:-) I am teasing my wonderful friend and I hope she does not get mad at me and start cussing again:-)
I shall ALWAYS ADMIRE my ADORABLE, ASTOUNDING, AMICABLE, ASTUTE, ARISTOCRATIC ANGEL AMICA....!
Hugs to my bestest friend,

What a lovely post, and I was also just about to write about that beautiful acorn picture, I get so inspired by nature. You certainly have been busy in the garden too judging by that last post!

And your niece of 46 soon has been getting recognition from AARP for awhile now and I have thought the samething. "Why are they getting in touch with me,I'm not that old yet am I".
