Looks like a wonderful trip. I envy you having your daughter all to yourself for a few days. The photograph is just adorable! Thanks Janice!
So true that one about the difficulty in getting it right around knowing when to push ourselves physically and when to go gently!
“Something to remember - doing and accomplishing new things builds confidence and self-trust.”
I need to tell this to my 92-year old mother. After my father died last week, she’s been commenting on her age (“I’m older than dirt”) more and more, as well as saying that she doesn’t know what to do. It’s concerning.
Thank you so much for sharing your journey and wisdom.
Thanks for sharing a bit of your trip, Janice. I think so many of us can relate to the concept of wanting to be able to keep up and not appear 'our age', and realizing that there needs to be a balance and some reality. (I love that you did Zumba!)
I hope your cold is better and the only lingering effects of the trip that you have are the wonderful memories.
I will keep that in mind. In a couple weeks two girlfriends & I are going on a 14-day trip to Greece. I’m so excited, but I’ll try not to overdo. Usually I come back with vertigo. 😊
You were in my part of the world! Not really but Prince Rupert is at least the same province. Glad you had such a good trip Janice! Get well.
Part of the reason that you do so well is you continue to be mentally and physically active. That makes a huge difference. Those who look at retirement as a pass to sit on the rocker on the porch don't last long.
Sounds like an amazing trip
Sounds like you had one of those "Perfectly on Time" experiences Janice. How beautiful to get to share such gentle, soul sustaining time with your daughter. I hear you loud and clear about this "aging business". My mentor Gladys has always said "it's not for wimps" - I tend to agree but I remain grateful to be able to do the things I do.
I suspect you would have gotten that cold from just being around people-maybe even faster from being in the elevator with them (smile) so I would just congratulate your self for all the boundaries you pushed!
How I look forward to your posts. You are a shinning example of what life can be if you put forth the effort. I am so envious of your accomplishments. Maybe some day I could be in your league of confidence. You always bring hope.
Thanks for taking us along. ❤️
I am also a natural follower, and my husband is a great leader. We work well together for this reason - very little competition. He’s been in cancer treatment this summer, so I’ve had to do more leading and decision making. Not my comfort zone, but I am putting on my Big Girl Pants.
