After more than a year, I am inspired to blog, prompted by two things. Or maybe a better way to say it is by two women. It’s been fun to read Denise’s two recent posts.
I’ve been feeling for a while that what I need is some visiting with an older, wiser woman. I had a short list (two), and chose my aunt Anna Belle Palmer Marshall over the other woman to whom I am not related. My cell phone tells me we talked for 33 minutes today, after planning for the conversation via e-mail over the last couple of days. Auntie is 81, I think. She does kitchen design at Home Depot near where she lives in Mission Viejo and this week she has a 35 hour schedule there. She is the youngest sister of my father. Married for 60 years and mother to 3 sons, grandmother to five grand daughters and two grand sons, and I think, one great-grandchild.
And yep, she is wise… and talking with her is fun. Glad I thought of it. I felt good after our conversation.
