Thats it then......

Can't say it hasn't been an interesting decade...
Been married
rode spotted horses on mountain tops
drove Pontiacs & Cadillacs
spun wheels at 100mph
found myself alone
discovered loyalty that lasts for eternity
Discovered the ecstasy of being a Nana
learnt to be a party girl
loved being foot loose
hated the loneliness
but loved being alone
learnt to follow my heart
danced like a gypsy
feared being homeless
lost loyal friends
gained timeless love
found me deep inside another
rekindled a true love
soared over the oceans
walked barefoot through paradise
rode full throttle into bushes
raced with the wind
Opened my eyes
reached out for a goal
started a journey
discovered a lifestyle
My last night in this decade will be just another night, with training and cooking and normal everyday stuff, I did a bit of housework today, a bit of gardening, ended up helping Hubby clean a couple of cars.... nothing wild and exciting to mark this day....
And really apart from the breath taking days when I watched two of my Grand children arrive into this world, none of the other days seemed particularly amazing when they happened either ..
Now looking back I can see how lucky I was to experience the good, bad and the down right terrible because without everyone of those days I would not be who I am or where I am today...
but now I am
Holding my breath and closing my eyes
ready to jump
reach higher
work harder
love deeper
and have more of the best times ever!
