Ice pellets began hitting the kitchen window last night– a not so subtle reminder that nature has its own time schedule. This morning, despite the calendar reading “spring”, 10 inches of snow covered the tiny crocus blossom recently discovered in our yard. At first I resented the fact that I would have to shred my “to do” list for the day. But later, as I watched our puppy bound through the drifts, I realized how beautiful the day is. Getting older is like this too. We think we have a plan, but then life throws a few surprises our way. We can either be frustrated and cry, “Why?” Or we can find the good, adapt, and go on. Sometimes it takes the disruptions to remind us to stay flexible, and to cherish our part in life.

A Message From Gail
Through my blog and website, I hope to share beauty, laughter, inspiration, aging & midlife lessons and advice on dealing with menopause. I will also devote time to integrative health and healing tips and news. I want feedback and questions because, while we may be sharing the journey, every woman has her own experience and her own story.
