I stumbled upon Emily's blog the other day and decided I wanted to give it another try.  I wasn't sure I could even remember how.  So far, so good!

If anyone could pull this off it would be Margie.....

Can you imagine what a difference this could make.....

Getting our blog on!

Today Emily is coming over to teach Sassy and me how to get our "blog" on again. 
Both of us have had such trouble with "Blogger" that we just gave up....and I really do miss it.....and I miss communicating with my other blogging buddies. 
So, it's "blog class" time......just like back in the "good old days"!

(I promise, we do smile, once in a while)

To my daughters

My dear girl, the day you see I'm getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I'm going through. If when we talk, I repeat the same thing a thousand times, don't interrupt to say: "You said the same thing a minute ago"... Just listen, please. Try to remember the times when you were little and I would read the same story night after night until you would fall asleep.

When I don't want to take a bath, don't be mad and don't embarrass me. Remember when I had to run after you making excuses and trying to get you to take a shower when you were just a girl?

When you see how ignorant I am when it comes to new technology, give me the time to learn and don't look at me that way ... remember, honey, I patiently taught you how to do many things like eating appropriately, getting dressed, combing your hair and dealing with life's issues every day... the day you see I'm getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I'm going through.

If I occasionally lose track of what we're talking about, give me the time to remember, and if I can't, don't be nervous, impatient or arrogant. Just know in your heart that the most important thing for me is to be with you.

And when my old, tired legs don't let me move as quickly as before, give me your hand the same way that I offered mine to you when you first walked. When those days come, don't feel sad... just be with me, and understand me while I get to the end of my life with love. I'll cherish and thank you for the gift of time and joy we shared. With a big smile and the huge love I've always had for you, I just want to say, I love you ... my darling daughter.
