So you worry then what?

The day is here...LIVE!
Smile, cry, laugh, scream, mourn, exercise and breathe.....then what?


Pick one foot up and move forward...
Pamper yourself and don't waste one precious moment!
Play with little children, become one again, go swing...on a swing...baby!


Enjoy family and friends, enjoy good food and drinks with them.
Inhale the fresh air and give all of them a big bear hug from you!


Never say Never....
Explore the idea of doing something you're fearful of.


Say...I LOVE you and mean it, otherwise it is just another Four-Letter-Word.


When one door closes........open another.........life continues.......don't miss the train.
ALL ABOARD....

Hugs,
Terry

Thinking out loud about pension plans.  Should we get want we want while we can or put it away for a day we may not see?

After my husband died in 2003, I was 57 at the time, I decided I would take Social Security widow's benefits when I turned 60.   This is my 3rd year getting them (? it ) and I must say I have enjoyed getting money in my account each and every month  AND since being dx w/BC, a nice bonus to pamper myself with.   Who knows if I will still be able to enjoy or use it when I reach age 66, my age required for FULL benefits.   I opted to take it early, at a reduced rate, but there was a very nice increase each year.   

Susie Orman had a program on TV the other night - she said to take SS at age 62, because the difference in amount is minimal compared to waiting 3 or more years.   And, the value of a dollar in 2009 may be a tad more than in 2111...   If any of this makes sense.

Spending more time with my extended family.  My gran died fairly young, at age 62, 14 years after BC.  I remember her most for her zest for life and not letting the grass grow under her feet.  Yet we always knew of her reverence for her faith.

I'd like my nieces/nephews to remember me the same way.  I write them letters, make visits as often as possible and do fun stuff on the spur of the moment.  I don't just talk about my faith anymore, I try to always live it.

Another thing I ponder.  If I say I only have one cup of coffee per day, does it matter if it is in a huge cup?

Hey..........I have blue skies..........and clean air........can even see the California Coastal Mountains...much to be thankful for.

My 2 year old grandson is walking by me and smiling........that means he probably went potty in his diaper......he is so sly.

Better go now...he is on his second trip around my desk as I type this message.

My grandson was born 8 months after my diagnosis....which was January 2007. I found my lump in January 2006.....so his birth marks the month that this journey began. He is my gift from God. We grew together.....each day a little stronger. In late April or early May I am being blessed with my second grandchild who will be a little girl. Her mother is my second daughter......so now both of my daughters have given me grandchildren. Children keep you young and they always put a smile on your face. One of the perks is you get to go shopping for baby clothes again.....so much fun.

Hugs,

My daughter is in réunion Island studying biology there. Her name is Marie-Lyne and she is 21 years old. She is the sunshine, the pearl, the godess of my life. She is away for only 6 months, but it seems so long. Yesterday, she told me that when she will be back in August, we will have lots of fun together for the remaining summer. Each day she lets me know what she is doing, I am sooooooo blessed to be her Mom.

ok..so I am getting anxious about this wrist surgery I have to have. Told myself not to be scared but I just hate surgery..any kind!! I dont like the being put to sleep part. Even so they say it is a ganglion cyst, the "C" word pops into my brain.I have a bone cyst and it hurts likes the dickens so I have to have it done. My hand is weak from it..don't have any strength to do much with my hand.

Popped in here for some reason. Looking for something else and found a little gem.

Each day is a real gift and Prettyinpink you will be around for those grandchildren. I have a lovely little granddaughter of five months, I honestly thought two years ago that I would never see the day. Bea ia an absolute joy and makes me feel really special. And yes Terry its great shopping for baby things.

Having decided that life was more than working I have time to spend with all my family and that precious little girl. I also am making time for me.

Here in New Zealand we do not get the pension until 65 but not working it seems to be OK. We have cut back on some things but so far so good with the finances.  Prettyinpink make it a huge coffe, that is one thing I am not denying myself.

It is a beautiful autumn day here and I have some things to plant.
