I celebrated another birthday yesterday ... well, for a few days really, you know how we believe that everyone should have a whole week!
The thing I’ve been thinking about is that I like this woman now. I spent a lot of time trying to be a different kind of person, trying to fit in and trying to blend into the background at the same time, trying to find my way and trying to understand life. Now I see it pretty much for what it was~ childhood ~ and all that comes with that and from that.
This woman who sits with you today has a heart as big as the mountain that she lives by and is working on having a forgiving nature, looking for a balance with the warrior side. She has a shy but quick smile to greet any and all sharing her space but a habit of protecting that space when needed. She is a very good listener and an elder who feels confident in the advice she offers.
This gal loves hot, spicy food, cold beer, rock & roll and slow dancing with her honey. But also has a deep regret that the chance to live close to grandkids never happened and hopes that there will be developing relationships to come with these young adults.
This is a woman who loves color, who gets emotional with certain combinations of turquoise, reds and golds
but tends to wear shades of grey, brown and black with her daily jeans and boots, maybe a bit of sage green sometimes, always silver earrings! If her friends were ask to describe her the first word would probably be quiet, but really, it’s more of a sense of choosing words wisely and being selective about conversations ~
there can be some whooping it up when that cold beer & rock music are flowing!
And this woman likes being of this certain age ~ 63 years young, as they say ~ and looks forward to obtaining more wisdom and grace, hope and understanding.
