Back again

Looks like I have been ignoring my Grandparent's Voice much too long. Time slips away and no matter how hard we look, it is no longer there. True also for the size of the grandchildren and the time that passes in this process of getting older. Perhaps I need to have this grandma's voice for myself.

My oldest granddaughter Sydney is turning 16.  Her sister Gabby just turned 13. The twins will be 3 in July. And.....well, let's just say that I will be half way between 65 and 70 in June. Seems we blink an eye and changes take place everywhere we look.

Since I last wrote on a regular basis, I have switched jobs and am thankful to have a job. I moved and am blessed to have a lovely place to live. That said, I am tired of working and my feet and body ache and my lease will go up $400 the end of the year. Ah, the good with the bad. However, I can't really think it bad since with each change I learn to adjust and find change comes with growth. I learn more about myself with each year of life and each life change. I get to figure out how to tackle adversity and turn it to a positive. I find that this old brain of mine has a great deal of unexplored territory in it and the adventure of exploration is exciting. The more I use it, the more it likes me.

I don't know what you have been doing in my absence. I hope life has been good to you and your families.  I don't have a lot of wisdom to impart today except for this: The world is a scary place. Every day a new crisis fraught with fear and anxiety. So let's toss out the fear and anxiety. If you have followed my blog, you know that I believe that positive begets positive. Rising above the negative absolutely gives us all power. A power to embrace others. A power to heal. A power to make this world better.

Yes, I am back. I will try to be consistent in my writing. I hope you will continue to join me in this journey of life. I return with love in my heart and hope for us all.
