I’m a 70-year-old woman who needs to learn how to let go of a lot of things. Material possessions, hurts and humiliations, the illusion that I am in control: these are some of the things I need to let go. My husband has Parkinson’s Disease, and as his condition deteriorates I have to learn to let him go as well. And I’m now past the age where friends start dying, and I must come to terms with the fact that at some point I too will have to let go of this life.
But that’s not all there is to me. I’m a mother of two, grandmother to one, retired secondary teacher, lover of books, and a lover of all types of needlework. I’m a happy and enthusiastic Catholic, a follower of Jesus Christ, and a parishioner at St. Jude’s, where I help with RCIA and coordinate the St. Jude’s Catholic Book Club, for which I blog as well. I’ve got lots of opinions, faults, and foibles, and I invite you to join me as I blog along my way. And please comment! I love comments! I’m interested to see what you have to say and I promise to reply.
