Contemplating life

I have been thinking a lot lately of my life. I have been blessed in to many ways all my life. I have never gone hungry, I have always had a roof over my head and I have always had people to love me.

As you get older you do think more of your life and what has gone before you, and my prayer is for my family and loved ones that they will enjoy their life, make God their first priority and appreciate all that they have been given.

My baby just turned 40 this week, so when things like that happen you do start to feel older.

I have a few health issues at the moment and am looking forward to them all being finished, praise God they will be one day.

I am walking with a walking stick at the moment (hope it is only temporary,) but it does feel good except it gets in the way and I am frightened that I will trip over the stick and break my leg or something. This stick has a compass on the top of it so at least I shouldn't get lost. It will show me the way to Dubbo.

I heard a lady speak this week at our National Seniors meeting of her solo tripping all over the world. I think she started when she was 60 and has been travelling all of the place for the last 16 years on her own. She says she has had a ball and encouraged all us oldies in the meeting to get up and go. Wish I had her enthusiasm.


  1. You DO have her enthusiasm!! Love you! xxx

  2. Good blogging Nanny! I love you and I hope to see you this weekend! ;) xoxo

  3. Love you Mum, wish you felt better. Praying for you and looking forward to seeing you.
