For my outfit today, I have to tell you honestly the pictures may not be as perfect as I wanted but the outfit was. I loved my look today, a flouncy floral skirt, tights and over knee boots… a true fall outfit that made me feel feminine yet was comfortable enough to walk to a meeting ( thankfully I had a big umbrella as the skies opened up)
Letter to My Future Self
In ten years time I will be sixty (6…0…) O.M.G. but I will also hopefully be retired and enjoying benefits of retirement while experiencing great health and happiness. When asked to write a letter to my future self I struggled a bit, I mean seriously I am not a 15 year old without any true idea of what life can dish out. I am not in my 20’s and just starting out dreaming about husband/family/career. Technically I am in the period of life where I am once again looking at closing one chapter and opening another but hopefully with a far more realistic view and approach.
Dear Future Linda,
I love you because you have continued to embrace life, to treat each day as if it was to be your last, you have continued to give unto others and share your zest for life with all of those around you.
I am proud of you because, you have retired and are now dedicating your free time to helping those who need you, You have continued your volunteer activities and expanded those activities to help more people and more organizations.
I am sad because there are so many friends and family members that are no longer with us but I continue to believe that they are all there watching us live our lives to the fullest.
I forgive you for changing your mind so many times about when you were actually going to retire, where you were going to live and if you should stay in this house. I understand that when the time actually came you retired along with Kent when you were supposed to and that you have been enjoying the last two years traveling and enjoying life. I know you miss the house but I also know you are loving your new place.
I hope that you are enjoying the Grand Kids and that Ryan, Nic and Carly are all in the best of places and that they, their spouses and their children come around frequently enough so they know you well but not so often that you and Kent cannot still enjoy your lives together.
I am thankful for good health and happiness and for the fact that Kent and I have had so many wonderful years together.
I wish for health and happiness to continue for many more years. ( And that Nic and Ryan are on their 4th Platinum Album and success has not affected them at all)
I will show my love for you by continuing to embrace my life and all that is in it.
