    Be a Woman of Grace

    In this world of Kardashians and Kardashians wanna be’s, be a GRACE. Doris Day I was night I just happened to be watching A&E Biography. While working at my computer, I looked up long enough to watch the biography of Doris Day. How I loved watching her in musicals and comedy love stories. I learned some interesting facts about this star who I admired a lot. She was the wholesome, girl next door. She was even referred to as the forever virgin. I understood what they meant. If you’ve seen as many of her shows as I have, you’d understand as well. When Movies Were Prim and Proper Remember when…

    Granma or Glamma?

    I have observed many women in my age group (over 50) who don’t look the way grandmothers looked a few years ago. To be honest, when I think “granma”, I picture grey hair, wire frame glasses, wearing an apron, and oxford looking shoes. That was my grandmother. What happened? Let’s explore. Pre-Granny When I was many years younger than I am today, being a grandmother seemed thousands of years into the future…..really. I remember being in conversation with a much older co-worker, talking about kids. I said, I will be so glad when my kids are grown up! She looked at me with a smile and replied back, “oh no–cherish…

    The Wisdom of a Classy Lady

    I’ve known knowledgeable people who were able to disseminate that knowledge with wisdom. By the same token, knowledge does not mean one has wisdom. Arrogance or immaturity can block the way to wisdom. Age and experience may bring one wisdom, and if you are a wise person, how do you pass on this wisdom for the benefit of others? Wisdom Is the Principal Thing Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. Wisdom is principal; therefore get wisdom. In all you acquire, acquire understanding. Taken from Proverbs 4th Chapter They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh…

    Forgotten Money

    This post is not just for my Senior Sisters.  There are still people who don’t know about money being held by the State of California Controller’s Office. Since no interest is earned while being held, you might just as well know about this and get what’s yours. It’s not complicated The whole process is very easily done. I’ll give you the name of the website later. When I looked up my information, I entered my last name only for the search. When I did that, the system not only found my funds but my entire family because I used only the last name. If there’s any variation in the listed…

    The Lady and Her Shoes

    OMG! I love, love shoes shopping. I’m a Senior lady but the passion is still there. Granted I no longer wear the 5-inch heels anymore, but I’m holding steady at 4 — maybe 41/2.  How are you ladies handling wearing heels….if at all? In Remembrance Do you remember your first pair of heels? I remember my first pair vividly. They were beige with a one inch heel, and boy, were they snappy looking. From that time forward, I looked for the unusual styles. Back in the 60s, we had to wear dresses or skirts to school. Some girls wore some of the most stylish clothing. My clothes were mostly used…

    Be a Giver

    Giving to others in need is so simple. Even kind words or a smile can make someone’s day. I know this from my years in the Outreach Ministry of my church. Besides the tangible things people may need…being treated with human kindness and dignity goes a long way. Love Thy Neighbor Outreach (LTNO) That is the name of the Outreach Ministry at my local church, Abounding Grace Ministries, COGIC (AGM). The Bible tells us that it does no good to simply speak over a person’s life by telling them to be warmed and filled and not give them the things necessary to be warmed (clothes,coats) and filled (food). LTNO, strives…

    What’s Under Your Clothes?

    What we wear under our clothes is just as important as what we wear when covering our bodies. Many of us are not as firm as we used to be which means, we have a little jiggle here, some sagging there, and a pooch in the mid section. Actually, I was being kind. Nothing says Class like an outfit that fits and looks graceful on a woman of a mature nature without all the bulges. Let’s talk about the things that lift, tuck, and shape. Wear A Bra Bras with an underwire give lift and support when you feel like you need it most. If your cup size is on…

    Activity Tracker Watch

    Hello Sister Ladies…I have a question for you, even though I’m pretty sure of your answers. .  Here it is:  do you track your activity during the day.  I personally measure my activities by the house work I do, how long I stand doing dishes and cooking, and shopping.  I wonder if that’s enough to keep me fit.  I can’t keep a straight on that one, I know I need to do better. One Amazing Watch I’m talking about a watch that can track your every step.  I was familiar with the concept, but I did not know this watch also tracks your heart rate.  It makes sense…after all it’s…
