I know where I’m going is going to be beautiful. After I’m gone, I want my followers to know that. I’m not afraid, and I want to thank each one of you for what you’ve meant to me.
When I started my journey with Face Aging MN, I was surprised when little old me gained a loyal audience. I’ve been proud to know all of you and be an advocate for seniors. I haven’t taken it for granted.
I knew at 12 years old that I loved to tell stories. It began at school recess. I’d use my voice and wasn’t afraid of the spotlight. Then a school mate of mine froze up singing “Molly, the Milkmaid” at a Girl Scouts event. Without hesitation, I continued the song and didn’t miss a beat. It wasn’t the plan, but it did save the show!
I’ve learned that everyone, and I mean everyone, needs help (boots and help, for us Minnesotans). We seniors need a little extra help, and I’m thankful for the support of my family, the staff at Woodbury Senior Living and those fighting for seniors across Minnesota at the legislature and beyond. My faith has carried me through everything. I’ve asked God for help daily and he has never let me down.
I almost have a hard time believing it’s all happened. It’s a neat feeling. I don’t go bragging too often, but once in a while, I do! Relatives, caregivers and friends have kept up with my posts, and have called to remark on them. I’ve appreciated every comment and kind word.
As I look back, I’m amazed at how life really does knit together beautifully. Thank you for being part of mine.
