Summing it Up...

Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

The word for today is kindness. Yep, I was reading O magazine again, while getting a haircut/highlight today. That Oprah gal is on the ball, or at least her writers are.

Life is tough, feelings are fragile, and as we age, being kind to one another is key in absolutely every aspect of our lives; whether it be between siblings, spouses, our children, friends or aging parents. My brother Mike and his wife Carolyn live by this rule. It is so apparent in everything they do. My Mom and Jim's Mom do as well. This is going to become my mantra from today on. I am going to be kind, at all cost, and try not to "react" to things, people, events around me. Not exactly go into a bubble, but instead, to think positively, and slow down internally, so the emotion that I would kindness. Tall order, and eventho Jim and I are nearly 56, daggone it, I'll give it a whirl !!!
