Never to late

As a grandmother who is recently retired, I need to get it together and increase my activities while getting healthy.

It's been over a year since I retired and I am really enjoying life. I can't begin to express how much I appreciate all the support and encouragement I have received from my Spark friends. I still have a ways to go but feel so great at the changes in my outlook and attitude since beginning this journey.

emoticon Daphne,
Are you feeling a bit shaken? maybe stirred, maybe fearful,
and doubtful and completely utterly, wildly terrified?
Good.
Keep going.

emoticon Take Care Of Yer Friends emoticon
Friend is a word that I don’t throw around
Though it’s used and abused, I still like the sound.
I save it for people who’ve done right by me
And I know I can count on if ever need be.

Some of my friends drive big limousines
Own ranches and banks and visit with queens.
And some of my friends are up to their neck
In overdue notes and can’t write a check.

They’re singers or ropers or writers of prose
And others, God bless ‘em, can’t blow their own nose!
I guess bein’ friends don’t have nothin’ to do
With talent or money or knowin’ who’s who.

It’s a comf’terbul feelin’ When you don’t have to care
‘Bout choosin’ your words or bein’ quite fair
‘Cause friends’ll just listen and let go on by
Those words you don’t mean and not bat an eye.

It makes a friend happy to see your success.
They’re proud of yer good side and forgive all the rest
And that ain’t so easy, all of the time,
Sometimes I get crazy and seem to go blind!

Yer friend just might have to take you on home
Or remind you sometime that you’re not alone.
Or ever so genfiy pull you back to the ground
When you think you can fly with no one around.

A hug or a shake, whichever seems right
Is the high point of givin’, I’ll tell ya tonight,
All worldly riches and tributes of men
Can’t hold a candle to the worth of a friend.

—Baxter Black

LOVE
your crazy, unbelievable, challenging
side splitting, spontaneous, improbable,
unpredictable, big hearted, absurd, delicious,
abundant, inspiring, joyous, daring,
jaw dropping, beautiful
LIFE
