So Much Forgotten

posted this picture.
It brought back a lot of memories.

She is eating a choclate cake I baked.
I believe she is one year old.

A picture can bring about
a flood of memories.

A totally different lifestyle then
one I lead at the present time.
Never would I have imagined the
lifestyle I lead at the present time.

Life is truly a journey.
Sometimes we think we know
our future
but we do not...

40 years makes a lot of difference.
I realize more and more how fortunate
I have been to have lived
a number of different lifestyles.

I have not been surprised at where I have ended up. My life has not been that dramatic after all.

I guess I am back where I dreamed years ago of being. But a lot of drama before I arrived. If what I am saying even makes sense.
Tabor, thanks again for reading my rambling..

You are still a beautiful woman. There is a line in your profile, I am more myself at this time of life than ever before. Life circumstances conformed us to adapt many times over. All those experiences make us what we are today. Woodhaven is your safe haven. Birthday wishes were already extended to Jamie. Milestone good wishes are extended to you.

I've had a very similar journey, OWJ, and have wound up where I never thought possible, on the ocean by myself with my trusty canine and more friends than I can count.
Lovely recollection for your daughter.

It is fun, to look back, isn't it. Seems like forever, seems like yesterday. Pictures are wonderful. You are a pretty lady.

in some ways i was surprised to find myself married to an east indian man and living in the pacific nw though my attraction to mediterranean "type" men began when i was a teenager, and my fascination with seattle started about 25 years ago. i manifested this life in some kind of way without realizing it. we create our reality in the choices we make, little by little, without understanding what we are doing, i think.

great pic of you and jamie. :)

What a lovely lady you are inside and out.

I want to be more content and relaxed with where I am at any given day and time these days. I am thankful for the gift of each new day.

Have a wonderful weekend there in your woods.

Hugs ~ FlowerLady

Such a beautiful young mother and baby girl!

I guess I never had any plans for my life, but was glad to get back to the country; and I guess I have no plans for the rest of my life, just hoping to slow down the work load.
