I should have written this some time ago as many of my friends have already turned 59. I would like to invite anyone turning 60 within the next year or so to join me on this journey. I don’t know how much of it will be worth writing about, but here is what I am going to do.
|My friend Pam (at 50) and my|
pregnant daughter ran the half-
marathon in the 2010 AF Marathon.
My 59th birthday will be in July. Beginning in August, I am going to do something special for myself, each month, leading up to my 60th birthday. I am inspired by my good friend Pam B., who did this and capped it off with running a half-marathon on her 50th birthday.
Don’t expect a half-marathon, friends. Maybe I will do a Zumbathon!
These “special” things will be something that is different and out-of-the ordinary. Perhaps it will be a Christian Women’s Conference (think Women of Faith). Perhaps it will be a special night out with an old friend that I haven’t seen in ages. Maybe it will be a “road trip,” or perhaps, a spa day, or some other pampering treatment. I may skip December since I will be primping for my son’s wedding.
These do NOT have to be costly, that is not the idea. They just have to be special.
I don’t expect all of them to be worthy of a blog entry, but maybe some will be! I invite my friends “of a certain” age to join me, and comment on what THEY are doing for themselves.
Probably in July 2103, but not scheduled yet, is an Ohio Riverboat Dinner Cruise for the Class of 1971. If that works out in July, it will be a great cap to the year of “special” things.
I am….we are…. special!
