Ramblings From An Old Lady

I'm new to this blogging thing, but as I understand it, a blog is whatever you want it to be at any given time.
I know you all have heard about how the mind wanders more and more when you get older...well, believe me, it's true! Today my mind is wandering all over the place and just when I catch up with it, I find it's moving on to something else. LOL
You know, several years ago, I probably couldn't have put my thoughts into words on paper, or type as it happens to be here. But God works in mysterious ways... I had a stroke a little over 5 years ago which left me sometimes unable to make what's in my mind come out in words. Believe me I used to be quite a talker, lol. I figure this is probably God's way of saying "Jude, you need to be quite and listen for a while." Amazingly, He let me keep my memories and also gave me the ability to put my thoughts on paper. I've developed a love of journaling. I love writing about my pictures, somehow seeing my memories in print seems to make them all the more special. And I find that I can now write what I could never have put into words from my mouth. So from time to time you may see some of that come out in my passion for digital scrapping. I hope you enjoy the ramblings of an old lady and please feel free to leave comments right underneath each post.
