As I See It

There are all kinds of magic in the world
“I’m sorry my son turned you into a frog . . .” is how my daughter, Beth, recently began a text to her youngest son’s kindergarten teacher.
Getting old helps you gain perspective
I am now officially old. As of Sunday, I qualify for every discount given to old people. I also qualify for Medicare.
Comfort of socks has improved with time
Socks. For some reason almost every pair of socks I put on last week had holes in them by the time I took them off in the evening.
Hiding in books helps her avoid the past
I finally sorted and put away much of the paperwork I brought home from Mom’s last year.
Working outdoors perked up her mood
January is almost over. Paperwhite daffodils are blooming merrily in their containers and filling the house with the sweet smell of spring.
Plans can change at a moment’s notice
It has been said that man plans and God laughs. This past weekend illustrated that perfectly.
Granddaughter’s personality is emerging
“I’m not a little girl. I’m five!” my granddaughter Emma exclaimed when I wished her happy birthday.
Show kindness and tolerance this year
Thank goodness last year is finally, blessedly over.
Togetherness is the most important part
It is Christmas evening. Presents still linger along with stray bits of wrapping paper. The cat is staring at me.
Holiday traditions can evolve and change
It is only a few more days until Christmas.
Godspeed is wished for hero John Glenn
Godspeed, John Glenn.
Memories can provide a rosy glow
I found a note from my brother, Michael, on the computer this morning. It said he didn’t want anything, that he was missing me. He was also missing his mom and dad and the way things used to be.
Christmas is what you make of it
If the weather cooperates this week I hope to get the Christmas decorations out. Now that Thanksgiving is over it is time to get serious about the upcoming holiday.
We otter be thankful for blessings
There is much for which to be thankful. Our niece, Jane, the marathon runner, is pregnant. She is still running on a regular basis and absolutely glows with maternal love and good health.
Life sends a message, loud and clear
I must be getting old. I signed up for Medicare last week. How is it possible that I am old enough to do this?
