Nine years ago I wrote my first blog post. Who knew I would keep writing, not daily, but often.
On Monday I attended a memorial service for a man I have known more than 40 years. His life parallels my own. We were the same age. We got married within a couple of years. He worked in his first career (grocery store) for many years before deciding to return to school and get his teaching credential. I taught high school; he taught third grade, both for 21 years. The speakers talked about his ability to talk to anyone. He laughed at life and enjoyed it to the fullest. Made me stop and think.
None of us have any guarantees. But, I will guarantee this: as long as I can connect to the Internet, and my fingers can tap these keys, I will write this blog. It’s been fun. I’ve met so many wonderful people and become a part of your life as you have mine. You have all added meaning to my life. Thank you for reading.
