Wednesday:) Wild and Wacky Women

31 Mar

“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream”

― C.S. Lewis

A group of wild and wacky women, who also go by the name of the Unbiological Sisters, went to the movies today to see “Hello, My Name is Doris,” with Sally Field. It was a cute and funny movie, with a few sad but realistic moments. This related well to all of us 50/60 something ladies. No spoiler alert, if you haven’t seen the movie, but Doris shows us a lot about life as an older person in a fast paced high tech young world.

 After the movie, we went for a late lunch, discussing how wonderful Sally Field was in the movie. We joked about how we could relate to having clothes in the closet from the 70’s and not being able to part with old junk and our old out of date hair-do. But, the main theme of the movie was, it’s never too late to change, to grow, to enjoy life, and to have a dream.  

So, a lovely group of wild wacky women went to a movie about a wild wacky older woman, and laughed and giggled through a fun lunch. It’s nice to know that we “are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” (Or to have another fun day with friends,)


Theme Song Thursday: “Hello”

“for every goodbye, God also provides a hello”

I was packing up some dishes this afternoon, when I realized I didn’t have any music playing. I’m suppose to be dancing in the kitchen everyday, right? So, I turned on my ipad and played a little Sinatra, Carole King, and Michael Bublé. While I was scrolling, I ran across a few songs that my son Joe had recorded during his college days. Or, maybe it was earlier, not sure, but I listened to dozens of his songs. It was great just to hear his voice singing just for me. My boys are so far away, and I miss them so much.

Then, I smiled when I heard, “Hello.” I used to have that as his ring tone on my old phone, but I couldn’t figure out how to get it back on my new phone. (iphone challenged) The song made me think about my sons, my family and the things that make me smile. Joe is getting married next year to his lovely fiancé, Lindsay and I can’t wait. I’m so excited.

So, as I pack up my old life and start the next chapter of my old story, a new story will unfold, with new exciting chapters of hope and promise. Not just for them, but for me too.

“Hello, my friend, hello.” I hope all your chapters and stories have a happy ending.
