Lady Traveler celebrates 71st birthday -- traveling!

Lady Traveler celebrates 71st birthday...traveling!

Winter deco lingers at my house through January
"Happy Birthday to me,
Happy Birthday to me,
Happy Birthday, dear Sharon,
Happy Birthday to me."
And many more....
Christmas is past,
so winter rings in my birthday with a shout,
"Another year older!"
Actually, I'm one of those gals who don't mind getting older.
It's better than the alternative.
(you've heard that famous saying many times, I'm sure)
When people ask what my secret is to a sassy senior life, I whisper,
"I won't let that old lady in."

One of my favorite Christmas gifts:
You know me and my coffee.
We've walked hand in hand through life for 55 years. 

My 70th year was one of my favorites.
In a nutshell:
I celebrated early with both my son and daughter here to 'party-down' with me.
Summer of 2015, early 70th birthday celebration with Shawn and Jacquie
Boating on Lake Murray, karaoke night, and lots of cafe hopping.
Then in January 2016 Rob and I took a leap and bought a beautiful
American Tradition motor home.
Our motor home, Moon River
(ornament: gift from daughter Carrie)
 We hit the road to Hunting Island, SC, then to Dreher Island.
In February I met some wonderful ladies when I spoke at a women's brunch.
In April I went to the hospital and came home with a bionic knee (replacement).
Since May we have traveled through 22 states, at last count.
Okay, as I'm writing this, I can see that this is going to be more than a nutshell,
so you'll just have to read my previous blogs of 2016 for more details.
I love campfires!
As I write, I'm back here at Dreher Island for twelve days,
enjoying God's beautiful creation,
Writing. Remembering. and Hoping.
Writing:  blogs, 'thank you's' to birthday wishers, and my book, LADY on the RUN.
Remembering:  the wonderful memories of my 70th year gone by.
Hoping: for a better tomorrow, a brighter future.
Hoping: to do my small part to make America great again, hand in hand,
with all my fellow Americans.

Rob and I are in the process of planning my 71st year.
Lots of traveling involved.
Places to see.  People to meet.
I hope you are part of my journey.
You can follow me on my Facebook page and my blog.
Or just hop in Moon River with us and travel to places unknown!

I wish you oceans of 2017 blessings!

Seek ye first the kingdom of God,
and his righteousness;
and all these things shall be added to you.
Matthew 6:33
