Just stepping on the porch to say that I'm still a porch member! We've been to the beach this week and had such a lovely time. I'm welcoming the beginning of a little cool weather today.
Praying for each friend here--especially for Chrissy's family in the loss of her dil's mother.
Congratulations, Allison!

In this day of scams you can't be too careful. Have any of you been contacted to ask permission to set a poem to music? I recently received such a request through my Faithwriter "Messages" and doubt it's validity. Any information you can provide would be helpful.

Thank you! I can't believe I lived this long. I asked John tonight "How does it feel to have an
80 year old bride?" He laughed and said he would advertise tomorrow to trade me in on
4 twenty-year-olds.

I purposely didn't put it on Facebook. I was afraid if they knew I was the oldest person on FW or FB they'd quit talking to me. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Oh shoot! I posted last night to wish my dear friend, Happy Birthday, and it never showed up! Please know I WAS thinking of you and praying your birthday would be as special as you are, Mariane.

It was a special day for us as well. It was our 46th wedding anniversary and my dear hubby took me out for a very special dinner. He is so good to me!

Happy Anniversary - Day 2, GreenLeaves! Keep on celebrating!

:party

Good thing I'm related to Nancy Drew, BeachGrandma. I went to your FB page, yesterday, to wish you a HB there, too, but when I noticed no other greetings, and no birdie alarm that it was your birthday, I thought better of posting. I figured you were worried about identity theft, or something. :wink:

No, Edy, I didn't feel comfortable on Facebook with its overwhelming population of people under 55 years of age to reveal that I was 80 years old yesterday. Our culture is unlike the Far Eastern cultures where old age is revered, where the elderly are treasured and their wisdom passed down from generation to generation. I once received an Email which was intended for someone else but as it sometimes happens, it was sent to the wrong person. It was in a chat room I belonged to. Two young women were talking about a project they wanted the chat room to take on and one of them said, "We ought to bounce this off Mariane before we present it to the entire group but on second thought, she probably wouldn't have much to contribute at her age." I don't know if the gal ever discovered her mistake in sending it to me. I decided to ignore it and it was business as usual. No one ever mentioned it.

I don't mind at all telling my buddies on the porch my age because I am grateful to the Lord for surviving that awful head-on collision years ago which by any measurement should have taken my life. But it seemed prudent not to broadcast it on Facebook. Some who have known me all my life did mentioning my age on my timeline since it was a milestone, but that's ok. They deleted it after I explained it to them.

So I've reached that age that many never reach and I thank God for the extra years he has given to me. I would have missed seeing my beautiful grandchildren who indeed light up my life and I would have missed meeting all of you, my dear friends..

If only the younger crowd knew all that we "over 65" folks have lived through, first hand, not just read about in books! And, with the wisdom of the ages in our backpacks, we're still the same people we've always been, since (as one wise young lady once told me) "You are a person, not an age."

How short-sighted of that chat room woman! If anybody would have something to contribute, Mariane, it certainly is you. I imagine you are younger at heart than any of them, with a mind full of mature wisdom they obviously lack. So, hold your head up and don't let the ignorance of some give you anything beyond a good laugh. They will surely be caught by surprise as they have to learn to age the hard way. :P The way age creeps up on us all, it's inevitable.

Sorry I'm late. Its been a very busy week and tomorrow is Jenni's funeral. You know, I was so blessed to have a my son marry into a loving family. It's rare to say he had a lovely MIL and that she was. We all got on like family and even after just 2 years of Jo Jo & Ken's marriage we have all done lots together. Now sadly, Jenni is gone. To be with the Lord, yes, but she will be sadly missed by us all.

Now... no more tears here.





HAPPY BIRTHDAYS & HAPPY ANNIVERSARIES are the reason for my visit.:)


Hope you had a great day!

Chrissy

I just want to say "Amen" to all Edy said, Mariane. I'm so grateful The Lord spared your life whiches blesses us so much. I have personally been inspired by your words and attitude.

I too, according to emergency personnel, shouldn't be here, nor our daughters. Our accident happened about 23 years ago. And then for health reasons about 9 years ago. God has been good.
