Once upon a time in a land far away lived a lovely lady, who had three very lovely girls, all of them …oh wait! Wrong story line.
Once upon a time in a land far away lived a lovely lady. She and I started our blogs years ago about the same time. I remember messaging her about widgets, something she had conquered and something I have long ago forgotten about.
The land far away is New Zealand and her philosophy and classy ways attracted me right from the start. She has been more dedicated about her blog, ‘I choose how I will spend the rest of my life’ than I, and we have continued our friendship over the years and miles. Through thick and thin, of which there has been a lot.
Some of what she has survived, with great style I might add: the sale of her home, a fire in a storage unit, a trip alone to Europe, a broken leg, the loss of a dear love, a head injury (which took months) and now another fracture.
She is a life coach who lives what she preaches, except she is not preachy of course, but maintains a positive outlook. She sets an example of a life well lived.
A few years ago I had commented that to me she seemed a lot like the character JB Fletcher on Murder She Wrote. Style, beauty, common sense.
Anyway, on her blog you will read about her latest adventure caused by lunch no less. It seems there was a fall, in a chair, the leg of which had been attacked by a rug posing as No Threat. This had followed a previous number of earthquake shocks which were unsettling but survivable for her.
I think in addition to Angela Lansbury she reminds me of Reba McIntyre who sang, ‘I’m a Survivor.”
So keep on keeping on my friend. Get well, and continue to inspire! And a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS from Canada
