Til Death Do Us Part

Hello All, I never could figure out just what those words mean. For me, because I loved my husband and we had such a good relationship, happy, content, I cannot imagine that it could come to an end. Yes, we are parted for now, and I live with the hope and desire, even need to be with him again and t...

Re: One of the Happiest Memories

Yes, I have had some wonderful , not fancy, experiences, and I am so thankful for that. And my daughter who survives remembers them too and is glad of the experience. We had nature all around us. Lots of stories about wildlife and it was a good life. Here we lived almost one mile from downtown and s...

One of the Happiest Memories

Years ago, when we lived on my father-in-law's farm in NH, my kids and I did the haying because we had two ponies and a horse. It was the most fun you can imagine. My husband showed my daughter how to operate the tractor so she could tether the alphalfa, bale it too. He was busy on the property runn...

Re: My Mirror is Not My Friend

Thanks, Rob. I can't help but laugh sometimes. I call the physical "adjustment" that occurs when we're older, at least for most of us, SAGGOSSIS. Things droop and sag, sway, and don't seem to give up! It's not fair but it happens. Glad you chuckled. The joke is on us. We thought we were so "spiffy",...

Re: My Mirror is Not My Friend

Brenda, For me it took some time of course, but I finally convinced myself it's not all bad. That now he is safe, nothing more can happen. No bad marriage, no banktruptcy, no disease, injuries, war etc.. and that he is simply safe and will carry on doing what he always did, helping people, caring ab...

Re: My Mirror is Not My Friend

Hi Dawn, You know it just horrifies me that TODAY in this era, young people have almost everything money can buy. I have a huge problem with that. It makes me wonder what is there to look forward to, what is there to bring happiness, if it's just store-bought stuff, trends, fashions, the latest gadg...

Re: My Mirror is Not My Friend

Hi Dawn, you do have to laugh, and we always did. We actually teased each other but all in fun, not in a mean spirit. Give and take. Haaaa! Music has been my stand-by having grown up with 3 brothers, and through age 9 to 19 lived on a small farm just outside of town. I didn't follow the boys so had ...

Re: My Mirror is Not My Friend

Yup, it's funny but it's NOT. haa!!! I guess if I was the only one who drooped and sagged then I'd get my dander up but this seems to be the norm for a lot of us. And ya, I don't have the problem some do of no appetite. I still like to eat but since I'm alone now, it's not the same fun. When I burne...

My Mirror is Not My Friend

Something is strange when I look in my mirror, I don't recognize that person looking back at me. I see green eyes, and that's what I knew I had, And I see light colored hair, and ya, that was me. But things are sagging, wrinkles are showing up, And the body, we won't even go there, who is it? Now I ...

This Morning God Reminded Me

This morning God reminded me so clearly, so beautifully, As I looked out at the green grass, flowers budding and blooming, The sun coming up and the peaceful atmosphere around me. I realized how good it is to be alive, to see beauty, simple things, All so important and comforting to almost anyone. I...

Re: Never Burn the Popcorn

I Have a history of burning foods. My daughter says she never knew potatoes were white until she left home. Burned carrots aren't the best either. Ribs on the grill don't do well and rubber eggs are not too popular. My husband was a Saint to put up with my cooking for years, also he had no sense of ...

Never Burn the Popcorn

I'm saying don't burn the popcorn because that's just what I did. Now ask me how could I do that and the answer is so simple. Why would anyone read the directions to the microwave? Why would anyone bother to become familiar with the panel, And so it's easy and it happens at least for me, time and ti...

It Was In New Hampshire 1969

One of my fond memories is on the 4th of July, 1969,I packed a lunch, for my husband and myself, and the dog...... and I remember what the food was. Tuna sandwiches, homemade spice cake, and iced tea, and biscuits and water for the dog. That was Penny, our Golden Retriever. My two children were visi...

Re: I'm new and from ME

Thank you, Eva. I've been busy outside doing work I had to delay but I am so slow. Can only do a bit at a time. Aha, it is looking good though. Love to hear the birds singing and the plants coming alive and perky. This is the time of year I just love. I often sit outside and listen, look, and apprec...
