Yesterday at dusk I went to visit the lovely Janet. We talked about all sorts of things that have made us happy. You know like finding bargains, having friends over for a waffle breakfast, family, being spoiled by a husband who builds jewelry cabinets, old historical buildings, building the home she lives in from scratch, traveling and most importantly Janet coming home from the doctor's office after passing a physical with flying colors. I think that is quite remarkable that a women who is eighty-ish doesn't let very much slow her down. Already, since I have gotten to know Janet I can tell that some of her secrets to looking & feeling so great come from having a sense of humor (you should request for her to put a rose petal in her mouth & pretended it is her lips), serving (don't turn her down when she insists on giving a foot massage) & I kind of think her large "secret garden" has something to do with her vitality. Her garden has brought her such joy...even the hard work of tilling the garden has been therapy, she says. I'm taking notes and I think I would like to include some of her secrets into my life....even a secret garden.
Thank you for being my friend Janet...I hope I look as good as you when I am 80.
