Eight Hours and Counting

As I type this last post for 2011 it brings to mind the wonders of how the time just seems to fly by.  Earlier this year we had a countdown for my grand-daughters wedding slated for June 5.   It has come and gone and she was a beautiful bride with a charming handsome groom and they seem to be madly in love like all newly weds should be.  My son Darrin a newly wed himself  and his wife were waiting for their first-born to be entering this world sometime in June.   Little Maria Helen did in fact enter on May 26th at 6 lbs at 1:02 p.m and she is Ms Millie’s eight grandchild.   I am just thrilled and thankful and Darrin is overjoyed.  Somehow in my heart of hearts,  I always knew he would be a great father in addition to be an awesome husband and it shows right up front, when you see him playing changing or just holding his daughter Mia (for short).   Life is good.

A few weeks back I turned 75 which sounds a little old but I read somewhere that today’s 70’s woman is like the old 60,  so I will keep bouncing around with my young attitude and doing my yoga practices just so I can walk like a younger person with a spring in my step and keep my balance, too.

My goals for 2012 are to help more children with their academics, encourage other seniors about how beneficial exercise is and  how it should become a mandatory part of one’s day.

To enjoy each day as if it were my last.  Compliment a stranger.  Smile and say hi to a person on a checkout line and be sure to hold a door. And above all to all of my readers and friends,  I wish you the very best of New Years.  I will be toasting my self at midnight as I watch my traditional Dick Clark in Times Square do the count-down.  No snow this year..but just a little brisk

…..Hey there———-Happy New Year.
