    2. I am not tall either. But I would wear heels, just for your benefit Shelly! You might have to catch me if I wobble in them though, as my husband did once in Wally world:)

    3. Jenny: Even when I'm 80, I'm going to be wearing heels, and please join me! We'll wobble together~

  11. Dear Shelly, I am not a believe in the importance of differences. I do believe in looking for what connects us. By the way, I left a comment on your January 6th blog. It looks like you and I took a breather from blogging about the same time, but you came back a week earlier than I. The important thing is that we both came back! Peace.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Dee: I'm so glad you're back! It is good to take a breather now and then. I headed back to the earlier post- and thank you!

  13. Dang it, Shelly, this is hard! I have typed and deleted, over and over.

    I am not ... finished ... I am not a finished product. It continues to surprise me, in late middle age, how much I am still learning and changing. Some people are adults at an early age. Some days I feel like I will never be one.

    1. jenny_o: It is hard, and that's why I haven't put mine in yet! I totally agree with yours- I don't know if I'll be a grown up even if I reach 100.

  14. I am not . . . I am not . . . I am not lifeless. I decided on that because X used to tell me to get a life. I had one all along.

    Love,

  20. Cute idea, Shelly.

    I am not going to stress or worry this year like I've done in previous years, but really try to trust God more.

  22. Dearest Shelly;

    "I am not TINY in my heart." Haha, I had been teased my tiny physics (sometimes still am) . When I was young, I wished to say it out loud p;) Lots of BIG WARMTH from my heart to my dear American friend from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

    PS> SO sorry my belated comment lately. My husband had a bit of cold, but got better now(*^_^*)

  23. What are YOU not?

    I am not cool.
    It's really humbling actually.
    I'd like to think I used to be.
    But now, I'm older, have 6 kids, priorities are different, I guess.
    I'm OK with it.

    Someday I'll be a cool grandma.
    I don't have to be a cool mom.

  30. a stickler for bedtimes and an enforcer of rules. If my children ever want to snuggle with me at later and later hours, I let them, because the laughter that comes in the moments before bed is sometimes the only laughter I hear all day.

  35. I am not fighting my body like I used to--LOL! My body is the boss of me and has been for over a decade now. I have adapted to that and am much more at peace with that fact than I was several years ago. I am content. Sometimes restless...but content. :)
