To Everything There Is A Season
You may be wondering about the title of my post. Well, Monday is my birthday and I have been reflecting on my life. Do you do that? A while back,Linda Rudman, Behind My Red Door, did an awesome post, called the Winter of My Life. That post stuck with me for some reason. So, with this birthday coming up, I realize I am in the winter of my life. Does that make me sad or depressed? Not at all. Winter is a long season and has seemed to have gotten longer. Anyway I have been reflecting on the seasons of my life.
As you know by now I was an only child and only grandchild, so I guess I was a little spoiled. I was very loved too. I had a happy child hood and loved school. I married young and never regretted it. I had three children and life was good. My kids were so much fun. I remember one year when Deb was ten she had organized a surprise birthday party for me. It was at our house and it was a surprise! I think maybe my mother was in on it too.
Come to think of it, my youngest son planned a birthday party for himself one year when he was seven. I wouldn't have known it if a mother hadn't called to see for sure what time! We had a birthday cake, but had to scramble for the rest of the stuff! No wonder birthdays are scary here . You never know what to expect.
I have always enjoyed life and expect to continue so for a very long time. I have been blessed with lots of experiences. I went to the International Special Olympics one year and attended the Kennedy luncheon. Met Maria and Arnold, that was a happier time for them. I met several other celebrities and it was so much fun. I did a TV commercial, my home was in CS, as well as my friend Carols, and Debs is going to be.I have been blessed with so many unexpected blessings. The top of my blessing list,other than serving God is my family and friends.
I am blessed with lots of friends.I play dominoes once a week with a group of beautiful, Christian ladies. I play cards with a group I have played with for 28 years. We have lots of history. I have a group I play cards with on most Friday nights. You see I am very busy.
So To Everything There is A Season. I may be in the winter of my life, but it is still summer in my heart. To all my blogging friends I say a big thank you for your visits, e-mails, and comments. It makes me happy you come Through My back Door where life is good.
ps There are several celebrations coming up for my birthday. Have already had one party. Next time I'll share those with you.
