Me in the Middle Turning 75

Reflections on Turning 75



 February is Heart Month ….. and it’s also my birthday month! ❤



 My last Fabulous February‘s post in 2016.  It’s a month that has always held fond memories for me.  Have I really seen 75 Februaries!!  That’s 27,393.75 days!!  That’s 657,450 hours!! And 394,447,000 minutes ……. !!!!


February Twilight

by Sara Teasdale

I stood beside a hill
Smooth with new-laid snow,
A single star looked out
From the cold evening glow.

There was no other creature
That saw what I could see —
I stood and watched the evening star
As long as it watched me.


Last year I put together Me in the Middle of Revealing My Theme ~ #atozchallenge on Lessons Learned in my life.  I wanted to reflect on my life and draw from it the positive teaching moments along the way.  For 26 days, bloggers posted on a theme using the 26 letters of the alphabet to come up with creative posts.  It was very rewarding and I now have it in hard cover to pass on to my family.

So it’s all leading me back to the question of how I feel about turning 75.  Here I am ………and I’m still here ……… I’ve arrived to this point in time.  What an ‘interesting’ time it is for our country and the world.  I’ve never seen anything like it!  It reflects the ebb and flow of all the voices and lives that are  moving us along to, hopefully, a better world.  Now that I have time I want to write about it, learn about it, and maybe create art to express it.  I want to enjoy being outdoors and making the most of the good health I have.   I’m content with where I’ve come from and where I am today.  I’m grateful for the many blessings life has given me.  I’ve survived and thrived through a lot, and know I can come through what lies ahead of me.  Each year is the ‘best’ year of your life. 


The Best Years of Your Life

  1. Reaching 75 is an achievement. Age is all a matter of perspective anyway. To look at it another way you are a mere 3/4 of a century. Congratulations on a milestone year and may there be many more good ones to come.
