I am a 3rd generation performing marionette artist. I am learning to live life to it's fullest, no matter what comes my way. My childhood sweetheart & I are still loving each other & the world, since High school! I am Blessed!!!!! I have found ZUMBA & have joined the PARTY! A bumper sticker said, "Zumba changed my wife!" YES! It has! Also, Flash Mob..... what a blast! My body now REQUIRES movement! I am a better performer because of Spark People! I thank God, the Angels, AND Spark People, daily for my amazing life!

My life is taking a new lovely turn! I am performing my marionettes for "Angel Workshops"! I love it, so rewarding & healing. A perfect place for me to grow & focus on goals. They happen about 1 time a month. Also, I maybe performing for the Wetlands, in their Nature Center (my favorite hiking spot) using my marionettes to teach about nature! It IS magical! I am so Blessed & grateful for these experiences. I am enjoying watching my life unfold in this new way!

My 'regular' job is helping my DH with his lovely small business. I am learning SO many new things & thrive because of it! I love him so much!

    I know what you mean about cleaning things out before decorating. It is amazing how much stuff accumulates year to year. I am glad for a purge though--and it feels good to clean things up.

    Greetings - good to "read" you ....... don't apologize for the length - you had a great story to share and I'm glad you did so! 94, eh? Bless your MIL (and you and yours, too)!

    Had a b-d yesterday (a milestone, no less) - but I've never fretted those, especially when I think of so many in my life who didn't even come close to making this age (I'm particularly thinking of a 13YO in my DD's church community who passed tragically back in the summer)........nope, you can leave me out of that "cranky aging" category, thank you very much!

    That's a great idea that you're giving the way you're doing - such a refreshing change from the crass materialism that has pervaded what should be a special time of year........

    I wish you and yours the very best for this season!
