Beginning to blog

Hello World,

I have been told that blogging is the way to go to meet and greet the world. I am sure I am going to stumble around for awhile so I hope you all will be patient with me.

A motto I love:
Healthy things grow and growing things change.

I don't know if you are like me, but I have to constantly fight my tendency to choose to do the same thing over and over again just because it is comfortable. After all, no one likes to look like a fool or be dissapointed! However, I have found that when I have stepped out of my comfort zone I often am not only greeted kindly but find a wonderful new zest for life so won't you join me to try new things....Beginning today.
This picture was taken on a trip to xtapa, Mexico one of my many adverntures out of the box.

Monica- I am curious, what is a retired gun competitor? Should we be concerned? I grew-up w/a fellow that was national amateur .22 caliber champion. Later in life we sailed together, he could see a ship's name on the bow from 2 miles, without a scope, a real eagle-eye.

As you can see i am new to the blog thing as well. I hope it is a great way to meet people and learn many new things. One of my concerns is the rising cost of health care.

Good luck,

Hi Welcome to blogging, I started my blog a year ago when I retired. How did you stumble on me I'm curios?!

I just was blog surfing, I guess you could say. Was interested in older women trying to age gracefully:) Some seem so lengthy in words that the sites with pictures seems to stand out so yours caught my eye.
I assume you are happy you started blogging since you are still at it? What is the best and the worst thing about it?

Hi Mom! Donna & I viewing your precious blogs today.

For those reading, mom has that special presence that causes all to leave differently than before you met :).

Another phrase our family shares -"What you think, you eventually feel; What you feel you eventually do"

So dwell on these things 'whatever is lovely, true, honorable, pure, right, of good repute, and worthy of praise'. Philippians 4:8

Happy blogging :)
