Hello my friends, happy Fall and welcome to Share Your Cup. The party where you share the things in life that make you happy.
Thanks to all of you for your support and for filling my cup. If you are linking for the first time, so happy to have you! I hope you feel welcome!
Today I am taking dinner into an elderly lady who lives up the street from me.
Bertha Is a young ‘103’, yes I said ‘103 year old that lives in a little white house all by herself.
She is an amazing woman. She gets me to thinking? What will I be when I’m 103?
I just wanted to share some of what I have seen when I go there to visit:
Now mind you, I have only lived in the neighborhood for 4 years. Not an old time Alpiner like a lot of people who visit. Still, she knows who I am every time I go there.
One time she was writing a letter. She told me that one of her grandchildren had asked her how she was feeling. She was writing about how thankful she was and asked me to read a bit of it. I was amazed at how legible her writing was.
Another time she told me that she had been to the Dr. for a check up. She said, “I don’t know why I had to go, I told him I feel better than I did at 73”.
She has an astonishing memory and loves life.
She always talks of how blessed she is. Never complains or wishes that the good Lord would take her.
I may not make it to 103, but I sure could learn a lot from this wise woman!
Now let’s jump into features from SYC #74. I missed partying with you all last week and can’t wait to see what you have to share this week!
Remember, if you want to pin any of the features, please do it from their blog.
Debby from My Favorite Things shared her love for the month of September.
Deidre from Simply Simplisticated shared her Fall box that she made from a pallet she picked up alongside the road.
Bliss Ranch made this ‘Rocker’ dresser for her son for the 2nd time. Yes, she has already made one once. I can see a rock star in the future.
Kathy from A Delightsome Life just remodeled her kitchen. The entire thing is darling. One of my favorites is the wall paper inside some of the cabinets. What a fun surprise!
Jeanette from Creating a Life Now made this darling shade to cover an existing light. You won’t believe what she used!
I love custard, so this custard cake shared by Make Mine Lemon was right up my alley!
