2013 has been a year of ups and downs along with a better understanding of life and how to deal with all the drama and finally learn to let go. This has been an eye-opener and stress reliever for my tortured soul as I have tried to please and change everyone I love. Now, I have learned they have to change themselves and it is not my job but to love them in spite of what I don’t like. I also found that pleasing myself is easy as I certainly put in enough years as a single parent raising and loving my three sons to have earned this reward. In the middle of the year (June to be exact) a little bundle of joy appeared and Joava is her name. She is the darling baby girl to my son Joe and his wife Chanipa and she makes number 10 for me as a grand-mother. How wonderful this is as I have the privilege of hugging another new-born and young one.My other little sweetheart Mia that lives in Brooklyn has captured my heart and gives me such wonderful joy when we are on Skype. By far she is the smartest cutest two and half-year old. We had so much fun the five days I spent with her Thanksgiving week along with my son and other family members.
When I was very young I just wanted to be 18 so I could conquer the world and be my boss. But love interfered and I married instead and so my conquering days were on hold, Fast forward to 77 years of age with sons at fifty-five, fifty and forty plus years, and ” I am more than ready to say it has been a wonderful journey and I am grateful to have had the joy of motherhood.” The love of my sons along with the respect could fill volumes and my heart overflows with gratitude. My goal is to spend 2014 with friends at Yoga stretching and keeping our bodies flexible and strong along with peace of mind.
To spend more time with my sons and families and to just enjoy Life!
Happy New Year everyone near and far!
