A Letter from Aunt Janet

My Aunt Janet loves to send letters.  I get several a year.  Each one is a treasure that makes me laugh out loud in some parts, and contemplate my life in other parts.  I love to get letters from Aunt Janet.  And so, I'm sharing some of her latest letter with you in hopes that it will encourage you as it did me.  Please note that Aunt Janet's letters have lots of run-on sentences and mixed-up grammar, but that makes them even more precious to me.


"Your golden years are ahead of you just enjoy the years now to the fullest, ya hear?  Please do.  Roll with the punches take the roller coaster ride (ups & downs) with a graain of salt and give thanks for everything."  (Aunt Janet doesn't know that I have a blog called Life on the Roller Coaster, isn't that funny?)


When talking about being a stay-at-home mom, "I wasn't organized I just dropped everything and did kids first!  Remember that and know one day you will be thankful you did.  The memories are priceless."


I don't need to add anything, her words and wisdom are so special and important.  I hope they inspire you and they do me.
