The Stills of Life

Still proud ~ of my Elly

Still thinking ~ I’m 30 in my head

Still grateful ~ for life, love and friends

Still enjoying ~ meeting new friends

Still wondering ~ what I am here for.

Still hoping ~ to be a grandmother one day

Still working ~ out what life is all about

Still facing ~ life one day at a time

Still pleased ~ about lifeโ€™s little pleasures

Still trying ~ to learn something new everyday

Still glad ~ I started to blog

Still amazed ~ people read the rubbish I write

Still eating ~ a little of what I fancy. Never mind the Doctors!

Still dancing ~ round the room on rainy days

Still breathing ~ works best when not chasing Toyboys!

What about You?

    That’s my lot! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Still proud: Of my children and how they have made a great success of their lives.

    Still thinking: Of writing that book that everyone says I should write.

    Still grateful: For my happy marriage of 58 years.

    Still enjoying: Life in general;my husband and friends in particular.

    Still wondering: How much longer I will live.

    Still hoping: It’s a long time;for me and for my husband.

    Still working: On writing all the stories of my family for my children and grandchildren to read and enjoy and pass on to their children and grandchildren.

    Still facing: Like my good friend, Grannymar, one day at a time.

    Still pleased: That I did not let computer technology pass me by. I bought my first computer at age 70 with no one to teach me how to use it. It was all trial and error (Mostly error), and quite a few calls to Mujibar and Serijul in New Delhi for advive.

    Still trying: To make new memories to share with my children and grandchildren.

    Still glad: I have a keen sense of humor and find something funny in almost any situation. It’s pulled me through a lot of rough times, as you can imagine.

    Still amazed: That my body is still working pretty well after all these years. Also amazed that I’m still working on this thing.

    Still eating: Not a lot of food, but all the wrong things. Cheeseburgers, ice cream, mashed potatoes.

    Still dancing: In my dreams. I used to be a fairly good dancer but now I use that energy for other things.

    Still breathing: HURRAH !!!!!!

  7. This is my first visit to your blog. I enjoyed reading the still ________. When I have a little time, I might try them on my own blog. It is the kind of thing that I write best late at night when my perspective is best.

  11. Currently, wondering what more life will give me. Understanding what had never occurred to me about sickness. Wondering how so much can take place in the body and you still go forward. Wondering when do you give up or if the spirit takes you forward no matter what? Hoping I’m able to understand whatever the message is for me for I know there is one.

    My best,

    remember to call gram
