My Life Is My Masterpiece ~ Lessons Learned

My theme ~ Lessons Learned.  I’ll be posting a word that begins with each letter of the alphabet that fits my theme.   This blog/website has become one way to share about myself to my children, my grandchildren and my extended family who are scattered all over the country and the world.  Hopefully, anyone who reads this will be in some way blessed by my throwing my words out onto the World Wide Web and into the Universe.  

 My About Page gives me the focus so that, as I age, I don’t forget what I worked so hard to learn.  It’s going to be fun and challenging!   I hope you’ll stick with me as I strive to meet my goal!!

Masterpiece and Work in Progress

******************** 

ARRIVAL ~ I’ve arrived at a place where looking back on the good and the bad along the way brings me a sense of peace and contentment.  I recognize the girl, daughter, sister, woman, wife, mother, aunt, grandmother and friend who traveled down these paths to be a strong human being who had her own sense of self always at the core of her life.  A human being who decided to face life’s challenges with an attitude of hope and perseverance.  It’s good to look back and to see that you’ve arrived at a good place in spite of those times of self-doubt and wavering.

As you grow older
You become wiser
You mature and realize your potential
The greatest gift of time, however, is that you discover your true inner strength and beauty which was
always within you but hidden before.
Look back on your life as the story of you.
Look forward to new adventures.
You’ve worked hard and prepared the way for some of the best days of your life.

Me in the Middle of A to Z Theme Reveal 2016 (#FlashBack)

        
It’s FlashBack Friday ~ A time of the month where you can republish an old post of yours that maybe didn’t get enough attention, or that you’re really proud of, or you think is still relevant etc.  This Blog-Go-Round is hosted by Jemima Pett and originally introduced by Michael D’Agostino from A LIFE EXAMINED.  That’s where you’ll find the rest of the participants or to join up yourself.

The post I’ve chosen for this month first appeared on ME IN THE MIDDLE on March 21, 2016.  Last April was a month of non-stop blogging and commenting even though I had pre-scheduled most of my alphabet posts.  I was seeing  alphabet letters in my sleep and would wake up early in the morning to make sure my day’s post was delivered as scheduled.  The many blogger friends that I’d meet each morning became my little blogging community as we encouraged each other and praised each other for the amazing ideas picked for themes.  This year I really will miss this part of the Challenge.  I’ll still be visiting A to Z Bloggers and hoping that I’ll continue to make new friends.  

All 26 posts for the A to Z Blog Challenge, along with the comments, can be seen by clicking HERE ~ or by clicking on the Title below.
