It’s funny how the things that matter in life change overtime. When I was 20, it was all about how much fun I could fit in a day……Partying, drinking, fast cars and whatever else I could get into.
In my 30’s it was more about the American Dream, Homeownership and trying with everything I could to create an income to make sure my babies had what they needed, even if it meant working day and night. Whew!
40’s I began to settle down, but still trying to make sure my bank account was never empty and my closet was full.
50’s.…clearing my throat….all this stuff doesn’t mean too much of anything. I don’t need a big house, a 2 bedroom condo is big enough as long as I can put some flowers in a small backyard I’m good. I surely don’t need a big car, just something that will get me the farthest distance with the least amount of gas. And what do I need all these black dresses and shoes for anyway?
So, what really matters? The smiles on my families faces when they dig into a slice of my homemade pound cake. The morning sun as it shines down on my face…..a hot cup of Java before anybody else is up….grandchildren who can’t wait to be in my presence…walking up and down the aisles of DSW and not needing Anything…. the impression that’s left on the hearts of the people who mean the most to me and more than anything me!
I really matter! I am the most important person in my life. I Matter!
Peace….Ms. Ellie’s Girl!
