July 4th~

Do yourself a favor and learn how to walk away...

 A long time ago my then sister-in-law and always friend
 told me something that at the time left me wondering.  She 
told me that she terminated a friendship she has had for
 over forty years.  When I asked her why she said, "it was
 not good for me anymore."  I always wondered why that 
would be so, especially after being friends for 40+ years.

Whenever we call each other I always ask about
 that friend of hers.  "Have you seen her?"  Have you 
talked to her again?"  Always the same answer, "no."  

She has told me several times that that friendship was
 toxic and although it hurt to cut ties, it was best for her. 
 I still didn't understand how that could be.  Today 
maybe I have a little better understanding.

Like many things in life, sometimes a friendship
 or a relationship has run it's course.  Always best 
for everyone involved to go their separate ways.  

That being said, we are soon ready for takeoff.  I am very 
excited this year, and that's all due mainly to three little 
girls I have the pleasure of calling my granddaughters.

To all a very good day.  There is not always a 
happy ending. Life is about the adventures you take 
and the memories you make.   I'm so ready.

There is no wisdom without leisure...
