Yes, I'm blessed, over the years I have been continously blessed with good health most of the time..Oh sure, now I put up with osteo arthritis, hearing aids, glasses, but...I can still participate quite well in most things I like
to do, and I like to do many things. I have done many things over the years.
I still try to use as many of the talents, God gave me, There was a time I called myself a "jack of all trades"..actually, I found I could accomplish
most things I put my mind to..!
As a young child I loved competing in races at picnics. I loved to draw, tell stories, loved to write stories and act out stories with my friends. I guess that was the beginning of my interest in crafts
and acting..which I did a lot of as a young woman and as a not so young woman.. I used my craft talent for pleasure and some business.
The acting and singing talent was a very fulfilling time in my life..starting in grade school,
singing solo's in the yearly programs, then as young woman doing on-camera TV commercial work. I was an actress/singer, in community theater (also became the director of many plays with community theater.) The frosting on the cake happened later
as I was cast in numerous feature roles at the Melody top theater and starlight theater. Being paid as a union actress!.
Oh my...what a great time that was. I had the pleasure of working with known actors like Mimi Hines, George
Chicarus (of West side story fame) Orsen Been..to name a few..
I do not waste my God given talents, I still do some crafts, with what energy and what my hands allow..I love to write and share interesting articles that help improve daily
living..mainly healthy living, travel hints, also motivational, inspirational articles through my blog, and encouraging others near or nearing my age (as you all may be some day) to stay active
I also was in sales and became the
PR director for 11 Holiday Inns. And started a concession business..(I loved being with the people enjoying a fair or festival.)
Besides being aware of the talents and energy that I've been blessed with by my father in heaven, I was blessed
with a father, and a mother, here on earth that encouraged me to always strive for the best and the next! They were my best coaches, encouragers, dispensing love at all times.
Be that to your children and always look for ways to help all
children of the country and world.
To say I did not and still don't let the "grass grow under my feet" (as my dad would say) I stay active and involved in functions at church, my community.
forward to new and more challenges in the future. I advise everyone to just keep on doing and sharing, that's what keeps years added to your lifes/story I know...I'm still doing it!!!
This is the day the Lord has made, I shall rejoice
