I always loved those assignments-NOT-while attending school which said,

"In 100 words or less---describe yourself"

AS IF---I can't describe getting out of the bed in the morning in less than 100 words---AND I REALLY AM a woman of few words---I PROMISE!

So what does my present look like and what is worth celebrating today?

To start with---

I am still above ground and most of the time I am vertical.  Disclaimer--this was written a few days before publishing---SO I might be wrong.

Not ONLY am I still alive and kicking----BUT

I take NO prescribed medications!  NOW--perhaps you thump your nose at this---ask around--most of my peers are on some form of medication!  
AND to top that off----

I have all my own teeth--not even a partial ----DON'T LAUGH---this is more common than you would imagine! 


I have managed to avoid even a hint of fame and all the problems it causes.  Call me---A Wallflower!  I blend in with the best of them!  Watch the media--this is REALLY something to celebrate!

And then there is the miracle of raising three children

while doing all the wrong things-including putting them to bed on their stomach with cover.


I have avoided ever breaking a bone--even though I have spent a great deal of time scraping my rear end off the trail and roads I have dared to travel.

YES---I am celebrating the present good health, great friends & family, and giant laugh at life----It does not look much like I thought it would---BUT I somehow have managed to keep moving down the trail--putting one foot in front of the other---all forward motion counts--don't put off until tomorrow--it may never come attitude!  No life does not look like I thought it would---BUT---PERHAPS---MAYBE it could be much better than it would have been if it had followed my plan.  WHO KNOWS!

BUT I am blessed with today---and I will take that blessing---and 


 Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth.
Proverbs 27:1


  1. What a awesome post, Lulu...let's see, I still have my teeth, have broken a couple of bones, never everh (grins) had a ticket, raised a child, never ever been on pills of any kind.... prob. could go on and on. I would say, both of us are lucky. Oh good news to report, hubby has stopped cold turkey his prescription meds (for restless legs) --3rd week now. He has dropped a lot of weight and isn't so groggy and grouchy anymore. He said, "After 10 years, he had had enough of feeling so out of it all the time."

    ANYWAYS---enough babbling(more grinning).---Happy New Year Blessings to you sweet friend

    1. ALL GOOD NEWS, Linda!! The ticket thing---finally got one in my old age 3 years ago. I let some OTHER Little Old Lady get the best of me and lost my patience. As I pulled around her and gunned it to pass---I was staring down the barrel of the radar gun. SIGH!! I am with hubby--who wants to feel like someone else has taken up residence in your body!
      Blessings, Dear Friend!

  2. You have a lovely and refreshing outlook on life, Lulu. God bless you.

    I have always worried when it said in the Bible that there will be grinding and gnashing of teeth. What about those people who lost their teeth? Will they be given dentures to grind and gnash?

    Lots of things aren't clear in the Bible. For instance, why did Jesus say "Blessed are the cheese makers"? Why them in particular?

    I'm very confused.

    God bless.

    1. "Cheese Makers"- WHERE do you come up with this- my daily dose if laughing with Victor!!


Your comments keep my writing and often cause me to think. A written form of a hug or a pat on the back and an occasional slap into reality---I treasure them all!
