End of October of 2014: Wow! What have I accomplished this year? If it isn't sufficient, I only have 2 more months to make this year worthwhile.
*I have learned that I make a difference to many people. That is comforting.
*I have learned that I have developed an infectious sense of humor as attested to by the laughter I generate when I speak. Friends and relatives from my early years would be surprised with that bit.
*I have learned that I can still project an appearance of beauty, just not opting to be a calendar model anytime soon.
*And I have learned (it has been a bad year for injuries.) that I can mend, and rehab myself to be able to still play tennis.
*Mostly, I realize that I have a responsibility to work hard to be healthy, wealthy and wise. Maybe the wise should go first in that sentence.
Anyway, I have rededicated myself to be all I can be next year. I might have to slow down a bit to do that; but I hope to be looking at 2015 in October of next year and satisfied that I was still actively involved in "life".
I will be looking for people who want to stay healthy with me. Jump on board and let's make next year an adventure.
I frequently speak to various caregiver groups, and would love to see as many people as possible. Come share your stories with me and the rest of the group.
