My mother turned 80 today!
Lets throw a bash
Eight decades of living
Living life 
Making history
Oh yes!
So much crammed into this life
The Children
All eight of them
One for each decade
eighteen grandchildren 
Representing a good life
All surrounding mom
On this day
That we celebrate her
And the day 
The world was gifted with her
Spirit for life
Wit and charm
Her zeal for life
All wanting to know 
Her secret to life
Her petite little frame 
Sitting in her favorite chair
Spinning the tales 
Of her youth as we 
sit surrounding her
With eyes gazing towards her 
As each hang on every word spoken
To learn her secret
The secret of
Living a full life
Of love


Well....I went over once again. This time 25 words. Maybe next week!

Do you have a secret to a long life?

Ankle After Work
Below is two fundraiser links to help with medical bills. 
We have no medical insurance to cover medical.
As I have just started back to work there is still not much of an income.
I will not see a pay check until mid January.
I also am not working the jobs I once had as I am unable too.
I was also released from one of my jobs that paid a bulk of the bills.
Through much prayers and through encouragement of some friends they suggested I give these a try.
Though only two people have responded.
God has been faithful in other ways.
Medical bills are piling up.
Just the few that have arrived already are near $30,000 plus.
And still coming in.
God is faithful and I trust this is alp going to be paid in full;
and every need meet through Him
Thank you!

Long life.. hmm... I think abundant life is what I'm aiming for- and the secret to that is falling madly in love with Jesus, I think. Love your post here- beautiful words.

25 extra words? Well, we don't care! We loved it!

Oh, your poor ankles! The only time my ankles swelled like that was when I was pregnant(see my Alphabe-Thursday for last week on Jenny's blog).

Sending you a prayer and a hug for healing. That must be incredibly old for you, sweetie!
