G : Good Attitudes

AtoZ2019tenthAnn

I don’t want to sound like a Hallmark card, but to be able to wake up each day with food and shelter, that alone is good. Forget aging and the fact that my butt is becoming a little more familiar with my knees than my tailbone. If you are six feet above ground it’s a good day. So, give me more!

Thinking back about the laughter that we looked at on our ‘D’ day, for Dyeing Laughing, I caught myself chuckling as I read this with the part about her butt becoming more familiar with her knees than her tailbone. I thought of how many cards and jokes my friend, Connie, and I have shared that relate to the same aspect, except…ahem…another part of the female anatomy. (Another body part that is also becoming more familiar with our knees than we’re always comfortable with.)

But all humor aside, the attitude Faith shows here is pertinent to embracing any age – not just the numbers in the decade that begins with a ‘6’. Whether the first digit in our age begins with a ‘3’, a ‘5’, a ‘6’ or even higher – any day that we wake up and we’re alive is a good day. Whether the ‘girls’ or the butt are perky or droopy doesn’t matter in the least. Food, shelter, and life (and I’ll add the love of family and friends) – that’s the often unappreciated blessings that are important.
