Good morning, Annette.

Your writing was a wonderful start after ending my morning prayers. I'll be quoting you in my journals if you don't mind; "This act of patience is kindness to myself."

I'm glad we are not part of this influencers-age, glad that we are "each other's."

My opinion on your last sentence? *****

Enjoy your August.

Love you, Mary Fran

Thank you! I'm so happy we've reconnected for a wide variety of reasons, but mostly to learn from each other. Love you!

You nailed it. Thanks for the beautiful perspective on how we 'crones' are coping with our world.

Thank you again for another thought provoking read- just returned from church and was thinking how your “patterns” thought truly does articulate how women live their lives. I am still not very wise in my 4th phase but do need to slow down and let go of my perceived control…… and sometimes just “spin” and do it……. Wish Megan Rapinoe had done that this morning!!!!!!!!!!❤️

Thanks for reading this friend. Perhaps consider thinking of yourself in the third phase, with a fourth yet to go! That's where I am, and I think you are there too. Let the great world spin! And darn it, I should have changed the name of the player in my blog, perhaps then they might have won!

There is so much in this post! I love it. You know how I feel about what's going on. Especially since so many that are fighting to remove rights are enjoying the rights that feminists provided for them. Talk about anger inducing :) Keep fighting!
