Hello my friends, another quiet, relaxing but stormy day today. We had much thunder and lightening with tons of rain. The air was balmy almost steam like but I loved it. Power went out again tonight and again I found myself setting clocks....one more time and I am getting rid of few....LOL
I went to Mass this morning, then spent my day answering e-mails, blogging, reading and talking on the phone with friends. Did I mention I had an hours nap this afternoon....heavenly. Talked to my sister, Sylvia, tonight for over an hour, wish you all could meet her as she is one terrific lady who is so kind and oh so funny. We always laugh so much over the dumbest things. Happy to say I am fully rested up now and my tooth doesn't feel like I need to have anything done to it, still taking the antibiotics and will go to the dentist on Tuesday as planned but hoping he will decide to leave it alone.
This is a picture of me, must be over forty years old. My sister, Sheila, (another sister I wish you all could meet, she is much more creative than I am and has a heart as big as the world) e-mailed it to me as I had forgot all about it. My husband carried this same picture in his wallet when he first went into the military and it was still there when he passed. I can't remember ever being so young but I do remember the day it was taken. It was pouring down rain (can you believe I was worried about my hair going flat!) and my husband came with me as he wanted a picture of me while he was away. I never liked my pictures but it was important to him so it was important to me. I only wish I had him have his photo taken as well but we probably couldn't have afforded two pictures back then. When I first saw it after all these years, I realized how much I have aged and I remembered I was once young with the whole world ahead of me. Oh if I knew then what I know now....would I have done things differently? Perhaps some things but not many. I think I am exactly where I am suppose to be and I love where I am right now. Even the sad times, the illnesses and the tears all have formed and shaped the person I was to become. The more things change the more they stay the same. I still have the same likes, same enjoyments and same interest. I still love to learn and grow with each new experience, and I still have the same friends from those many years ago. This picture reminds me of what was, what is and what is left to "be" Life has been good to me, I have been very blessed, known great happiness as well as great sadness but it has been my life and I am so thankful for it.
Now I know I have given you all a good chuckle so I am off to visit my favorite blogs and post comments, have a wonderful day tomorrow and as always..Good Night and God Bless.....:-) Hugs
