Yesterday — on another cold and rainy May stay-cation day — I saw my old friend Ada. We shared many memories, hopes, and a cup of tea.
Be proud of who you are, even if
- you forget to take a picture of your fabulous friend Ada,
- you fall asleep before answering all the comments on your blog,
- the universe conspires to give you miserable weather throughout your long-awaited May stay-cation,
- you make mistakes every day,
- your memory and your endurance fade as you age,
- you go for walks when other people have the good sense to stay inside,
- you dance and sing out loud in public,
- you sometimes forget the words,
- you let your childhood piano go untuned for over 15 years,
- you’re living with a guy who collects snow globes,
- you haven’t done any of the cooking, cleaning, or laundry since that snow-globe-collecting guy moved in,
- you make messes,
- you have trouble making some decisions,
- you get impatient sometimes,
- you show and express all your feelings, including fear, anger, sadness, and joy, and
- you can’t always explain why you snap and share the photos you do.
I’m proud of who I was yesterday, dancing and singing out loud to this:
Be proud of who you are, no matter how you respond to this post.
Proud thanks to all who help me blog every day and to you — of course! — for being proud of who you are (I hope).
I’m very proud of you for the photos you take, Ann. You offer us a great “slice of life” that is so enjoyable. It makes perfect sense to me why you “snap and share”. ❤️
