After an exhausting almost three days of HOPPING for HEALTH I finally managed to visit everyone. ALEX HOW DO YOU DO IT?
Thank you all for participating. Some of your really had some UNIQUE ways to stay fit. One blogger friend HULA HOOPS.... Now that's impressive.
Last week Morgan Shamy, a very close blogger friend, tagged me with MY FIVE HAPPY WAYS. I NEVER have time for most memes, but since I am a firm believer in EVERYTHING positive, I needed to post this. PLUS, how could I refuse the MORG.... LOL.
A little about Morgan. She is amazing. Not only does she care for four children, a hubby, a house, friends, and all her blogger friends, she still manages to keep up with all her writing.... Nothing short of MIRACULOUS! Another person I wish I knew HOW they do it! (That exclamation is truly for you Morg).
I am honored and happy to know Morgan because she has graced my life with whimsy, effervescence, old-world-charm and yes, MAGIC... Thanks Morg for selecting me with this meme.
And now for my five happy ways.
First and foremost, I am very happy and appreciative that I have mobility. "What?" You ask. For a very long time, years in fact, I was crippled with arthritis and even bedridden for one of them. This happened to me in my early thirties when most people are at the top of their game. After a decade of pushing myself, I am able to walk again. I may have some limits, but overall, I can accomplish what I need to do. The pain exists, but only as a whisper. I learned to live with it. NEVER take your health or mobility for granted.
Nature, is next. The birds chirping, bright flowers in a meadow basking in the sun, a periwinkle sky with a wisp of a white, fluffy cloud, a rolling sea crashing against a powdery sand, and even skyscraper propelling into space from a quiet shoreline, all make me happy.
Earthly Angels.... Those people that appear in our lives and do something so selfless and expect nothing in return. Thees chosen people are certainly sent to us by God.
The Arts: What would we all do without beautiful music, visually excited sculpture, colorful and expressive paintings, and of course for words woven so poetically into prose .... all can and have brought tears to my eyes.
And finally.... My blogging family. YOU KNEW I would mention you... HOW could I not. SO many, kind, caring, and supportive people. In all my travels through life, I have never met such a wonderful group of people that I have given so much of themselves. They game me TIME... our most treasured commodity...
SO, I would like to share with you some pics you may or may not have seen of me and some of my blogger friends ...
Starting with the most recent .... Nicki Elson and I celebrating our birthdays a few weeks ago...
And finally... for those of you who had missed it ..... ANOTHER BLAST from the past .....
Well, the sunglasses at least, vintage Raybans ...well they weren't back then ... LOL ..... Don't laugh too hard .... THIS one is for you MORG....
As for picking five bloggers to pass this onto... Well, I pass it to ALL OF YOU. Be thankful and show us all what makes you HAPPY!!!!
HAVE a great weekend everyone!
