What? Suddenly I'm old...

I have lived quite a long time, not as old as some but a good deal older than many.  I was born the 6th of 8 children in the hills of Southeastern Missouri.  I have outlived 3 sisters and 2 brothers.  They all died in their sixties except for one of my sisters who lived to be 73.

I grew up in a very poor family.  Daddy moved us all (7 kids and mom) to Illinois when I was 3 years old.  My youngest brother was my only sibling born in Illinois.

I am not sure where I am going with this blog. I will decide that as I go along.  beth


  1. And it happens just like that, doesn't it? One day you are a child living happily with your family and the next you are finding you are not as young as you used to be. Just take comfort in the fact there are a ton of us going down the same road with you. We will keep each other company along the way. HUGS!

  2. I totally agree, there are a ton of us to keep you company in your journey here. Love ya to pieces Sis..XXOO

  3. Yes suddenly I am old too, dwelling too much on the fact lately though, so this will be the only time I actually put it on here in black and white :)


I am happy that you visited me and I would love a comment from you. I mean for this blog to be taken seriously and your input will be greatly appreciated.
