A Rare Occurrence


I thought I'd show a picture of my daughters and I because it's a rare occurrence for us to all be together. I'm sorry this picture if a big blurry it was taken with a new camera before we got the hang of letting the auto focus do its thing.

Leslie, on the left, was here for a week from California, her birthday was in the middle of that week. I'm not telling her age but the next one if a big one. My birthday follows in a couple of weeks now and then Rachel's [on the right, of course] is a month later. We're all getting old enough that we don't announce the numbers. I figure I'll wait until 90 to announce the number proudly -- that is well in the future. And I'm not tattling on them either.

I was chatting with a couple of women this morning -- all over 60 -- and we all agreed that numbers actually tell nothing about the age we are. I'll be pondering this subject in greater depth in the next couple of weeks. After all I started this blog to hold myself to a certain level of truthfulness. But fudging is always a temptation that I sometimes give in to.

June -- what a lovely group of women! How much fun to be with daughters (and sons too).

I have a big family get-together coming up soon -- my children, grandchildren and a son-in-law -- all but one from other states.

Age is wisdom and beauty.

Msny thanks to all three of you -- it's wonderful to be together and to be aware how much we have in common even though our lives as adults have been very difference from one another.

The daughter on your right looks a lot like her Mom. Being about the same age as you I think I may know how old two daughters might be.
Cute picture June.
