MAY 1, 2019: I lost another friend this week. It’s the worst part of growing older.
I won’t complain today about my aches and pains.
MAY 2, 2019: Our poetry group, the James City Poets, met today.
I wrote a poem about pollen. Maybe poetry is “stuffy” after all.
MAY 3, 2019: I’m self-employed as a Mary Kay Cosmetics Sales Director.
If you hear me talking to myself, I’m in a staff meeting.
MAY 4, 2019: I won three awards at the CNU Writer’s Conference.
A 1st in Poetry, a 2nd in Non-Fiction, and a 3rd in Juvenile Fiction. So happy!
MAY 5, 2019: I gave my daughter a t-shirt that says,
“TOMORROW…a mythical land where everything I need to do is done.” Amen!
MAY 6, 2019: A reminder for difficult times…
Just when the caterpillar thought its world was over, it became a butterfly.
MAY 7, 2019: Saw a beautiful turtle today – orange markings on shell and head.
He sat in the sun with me for a while, then crawled off on his journey to somewhere.
MAY 8, 2019: The zinnias I planted are up, waving their little green heads in the breeze.
Nature’s magic…brown seeds last week — pink, yellow and orange blossoms soon.
MAY 9, 2019: My granddaughter, Emma, broke her wrist at school yesterday.
Her sister, Adaline, broke her arm two months ago. Hoping grandson, Zachary isn’t next.
MAY 10, 2019: When my daughter asked what I wanted for Mother’s Day, I said,
“I have two loving kids with great spouses, three amazing grandkids,
a grand-dog and two grand-cats. I have everything.”
