Words
I was reading the paper this morning and one of the headlines read "Elderly Woman Dies in Home Fire". When I started reading the story, one portion read "The woman was only identified as being about 70 years old".

I said yesterday that I was old, but ELDERLY did not come to mind when I think about where I am in my life. Elderly makes me think of canes, walkers, powered scooters. I may have medical issues going on, but I'm not disabled. I asked Siri the definition of Elderly and her reply "(of a Person) old or aging". I guess that puts me in the category of Elderly. Roll with the punches!

I received a text this morning from a cousin in North Carolina wishing me a Happy Fathers day. It was nice and made me think about extended family. I've tried to keep in touch with a few of my cousins who I grew up with. We've all gone out separate ways but it's nice to hear from them occasionally. My father and father in-law were both very family oriented and wanted to keep the families close.

Today being Fathers Day, I'd like to wish anyone who stumbles onto this blog a Happy Father Day to you! I'm looking forward to hearing from my 4 children and will be waiting anxiously near a phone in hopes that they all call. You want to make sure they know they're still part of the family even if we're not there in person.

Life is Good - God Bless
