Okay, so I’ve been reading lots of these six word memoirs across the blogosphere lately, always thinking how creative people can be. How smart, not like me! All the time feeling pretty smug that no one would tag me. How quickly things change! A fews days back Colleen over at Meanderings surprised me with the challenge. Now I don’t have to tell you that I’m no poet, and I’m far too wordy at times (okay, most of the time)! And confining myself to six words is H A R D. What I’d write if I could use 13 words is like the old country song says, “I’m still a good wagon, even if I am starting to break down.” But Colleen said only six. She wouldn’t budge. So here it is, my six word memoir:
DECADES OF GROWTH,
NURTURING CHILD WITHIN CHILD AT HEART
Awful, ain’t it? Now, that’s done, even though I do so with trepidation and childish timidity, because I still worry about not measuring up to the best, I in turn tag: Mary Margaret (Rockbridge Times), Sharry (Embodied Aging), Marlys (Senior Writer), Granny Mar (Granny Mar), and Thoroughly Modern Millie (My Mom’s Blog). If you accept the challenge of this popular meme:
