MY ACCEPTANCE SPEECH:

Oh my God, me? An award? I’m only writing this blog as a therapeutic tool to help me grow emotionally and spiritually as I get older! First and foremost I would like to thank my therapist, Laura, for opening up the doors in my heart that were closed due to to anger and hurt. She made me realize that you can choose to forgive and even love and value the people who have hurt you. It was a life-changing lesson. Laura also encouraged me to continue to write to express my feelings. I’d like to thank my mom, my husband, my kids, and a few special friends who continue to love me and encourage me despite my flaws.

Because this award is about best moments I’d like to say that the best moments are the times when you can connect deeply to some one else while being totally open and honest. Discovering the truths about a person enables the deepest connections possible and those are moments in my life that I cherish the most.

My “blog” is about the discoveries I am making about my self and my life while growing older. I am so happy to have touched a few people along the way.

I would like to thank my friend, my fellow chronic pain traveler, Dawn, whose courage and determination are an inspiration to me.

I am nominating 6 Bloggers who have made me feel their moments:

THE WISDOM OF AGE

We are almost them; the older generation

We are becoming the matriarchs, the sages

We are getting wrinkles and cranky backs

We are seeing our spouses die

We are seeing our kids have kids

We are wondering how we will live

We are wondering how we will die

We are considering our lives

We are looking back but our memories are fading

We are thinking about how we will be remembered

We are seeing jowls and wobbly legs

We are moving into smaller places

We are seeing with fading eyes

We are realizing the preciousness of life

We are counting every blessing

We are smiling at the small things

We are enjoying every sunny day

We love the sound of laughter

We are happy to be loved.
