I decided not to write about Weddings since I have already touched that subject in my other scribblings. Instead I decided to do a self inventory. Now you might ask yourself why would I want to make a public confession of my faults. I think it’s because my main fault or flaw is that I am perfectly happy being a hermit and find that interaction with other people is a necessary evil that I try to avoid like the plague.
I just recently retired. I was Vice President, Chief Operations Officer of a nice size corporation and had to deal with people on a daily basis. So it’s not as if I’m not capable of talking and dealing with people. I think it’s more that I am tired of dealing with people. But as a Christian I know that it really is my duty to be a light to others and to show them God’s love. I must continue to be salt
My husband and I cared for his mother before she passed away, and we are still caring for his Aunt and my Aunt. It is so hard to see your loved ones age. Someday I will ask God why we can’t just say “Beam me up Scotty” instead of going through such an undignified aging process.
My other confession is that part of me wants to give up writing on this blog. It makes my mind hurt. It seems as if I don’t want to do anything that taxes my brain, but if I don’t then the synapses might stop working. Is it laziness or is it because I have always been ADD and it’s just getting worse.
My husband and I just recently joined the local Recreation Center. We try to go swimming at least three days a week. I know that once the weather gets cold he will have to drag me out of this warm house to that cold pool.
Someone needs to write a book about life after 60 to help people understand why all of the sudden doing simple things like making the bed or scrubbing the kitchen floor seem like monumental task.
Now don’t misunderstand me, I love life. I love my family, especially my grandchildren. I have become lazy and this is a new experience for me, one that I think I better shake before winter gets here.
