It's simple reality Posted on Jul 15, 2013 at 04:38 PM

For those  (men and women alike) who are the older of the realtionships, how do you/will you handle the day when your mate decides the age is just too much of a difference. Frankly, I can't see this not happening unless you have millions of bucks and they stand to get a large chunk lol.

I know it has to be on your minds if you are in a realtionship. In most things I am a realist and know human nature for what it is. Tell do you cope or plan to cope when that day arrives? Because we all make promises to love forever and many times that is just not possible.

Time and children are so precious Posted on Jul 15, 2013 at 03:59 PM

Every time I spend a week or so with my gr-children, I have to marvel at each and every change in them. How some things seem to just suddenly click and others are things they have to battle on and off; maybe their whole life.

I hear other friends say how their gr-children are reminders of how old they have gotten and how did it happen so fast. I don't find myself thinking in those terms. I find I am thinking how grateful I am that I am healthy enough to carry a conversation with them and understand what they speak of. I can  listen to their music with an open mind and appreciate a good song and admit it. I can sit up till wee hours watching horror movies. I only watch horror movies with them other wise I have no paitience for the story lines. I can still go and enjoy a trip to the mall being drug  back and forth to the same stores 3 times because she can't make up her mind and laugh about it hours later.

I can't let myself feel old when they are around, how fair is that to them. We have fun, we make memories and traditions together. I don't want them to be afraid of growing old when it's their turn. I hope I can leave them with that, that aging is not a time of misery unless you choose for it to be.


Spoiling Grand Daughter Posted on Jul 09, 2013 at 09:18 AM

I haven't disappeared, I'll be back after I spoil her for a bit. Rare occasion I get to see her.

Have you traveled outside your country? Posted on Jul 05, 2013 at 11:52 AM

I love traveling meeting friends I have come to know over the net. If I had the funds, I would never be home I think. 

 I have went to England and met members of an online game that I played for years and I had an extremely great time. I would love to go again and also to Holland. I have been to Germany but just a week so I didn't get to see very much but the surrounding area.

Spain is also on the list as a must see.

Where have you been and if not where would you love to go and why?  Share some stories with us!

It Happened Posted on Jul 04, 2013 at 05:50 AM

You can be so commited to your beliefs at 20, 30 and into the 40's and stick steadfast to them and then you top that hill and see a whole new world. Sometimes it happens earlier or was just lying hidden deep within you.  

  Never ever, being the mother of sons, did I even consider seriously getting involved with a younger man. My friends would see a hot young man and say..  OMG, wouldn't you just love to.....  I would see a healthy young man who could be my son. That's how my brain worked. It just didn't go there.

  Then into my life came someone who grabbed my attention and my heart who happened to be 30 years my junior. Oh believe me I fought it, pushed the feelings back but it wasn't meant to be. Even at just being friend stage, we got looks, questions, jokes and some tsk tsk stuff. It's so hard for most people to see or want to see such age differences enjoying each others company. 

  I know since this man has come into my life I see things fresher and have become curious about things around me again. He has learned from me how to have more patience and tolerance for people.  It's not all about sex sometimes, but to most..that is what it has to be can't be anything but ...shame on her!

  Any relationship, no matter the ages, upbringing, race, gender, etc happens because that person fills something in your life you are needing to grow as a person. How you present that relationship to others is up to you. If you color it cheap and non-respectful then so shall it be. 

  I personally love my man and color him with pride, respect and my total belief in him.

Not in Kansas anymore! Posted on Jul 03, 2013 at 09:22 AM

  How did I come here, why did I come here?  Life used to be so simple, you met a guy a couple years older, fall in love, marry and have kids.....simple......perfect. 

  What the hell happened?  Did I wake from a dream or have I made a new one?  Somewhere along the way the roads took me other places and I met so many different people. I quit buying the fantasy of the "Perfect Life"

  Before I reflect on myself, can I meet some of you and share a bit where your life took a major change and why?
