I went to a wedding yesterday. The wedding of a special person. OK, I know that everyone is special in one way or another but for today I'm going to concentrate on why Marsha is special. I've known Marsha for quite a long time. Before she became the beautiful young lady she is now. When she was a beautiful pre-teen/teen. For the record I don't use the word beautiful simply or only as a physical attribute but to include beauty of spirit and personality. Marsha has stayed with me in New Zealand and has been one of the most delightful of visitors. She even played croquet! Big plus!
So today I am thankful for the new life that Marsha and Moe are making for themselves. May it be a long and happy marriage. If the rest of their lives is half as good as the wedding was then it should be a pretty good life!
We may be apart but when I look at the sky and remember that we are standing on the same earth, looking at the same moon, somehow you don't seem so far away after all.
Life isn't about dawdling to the grave, arriving safely in an attractive, wrinkle-free body but rather an adventure that ends skidding in sideways, champagne in one hand, strawberries in the other, totally worn out, screaming "Yee-ha. What a ride!!"
Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass… It’s about learning to dance in the rain. (With thanks to shabby girl ofA Travelling Fish)
But what are plans other than more restrictions? (With thanks to Pauline)

The trick to pushing 70, GB, is to push back -- hard!!! (A comment by Carol aka Canadian Chickadee who comments but does not blog)
Having lived the majority of my life in the Hebrides where my heart is, I feel I can now call myself a Hebridean. For nine years I lived half my life in New Zealand: a country I love. It was an honour being a part time Kiwi.
