Senior Spotlight for Aug. 18, 2009

Mary Jo Brown

When I get up in the morning, one of the first things I like to do is draw the drapes open and then look out and survey the scene.

This morning, I noticed a medium-sized branch on the ground. Its limbs were spread up and out, and glistening dew drops were hanging from them like diamonds strung out on each limb.

Yes, there it lay, a broken limb, but it still was beautiful, and still not giving in to whatever comes next. No matter what life hands us, we can and must still hope, for it is there.

Birthdays are also here. I have birthdays for Maxine DeJong, Betty Reece, Mary Deatherage, Judith Heflin, Pat Whitestall, Norman Gibbs and Joan Bailey.

Get well/speedy recovery to Douglas Wilkinson, Cathy Wells, Dale Kettle, Betty Rice, Rose Razzano and Karen Prince.

AARP Chapter No. 1418 hosts its annual picnic at noon Monday at City Park. Chicken will be served. Please bring a side dish, your own table service and beverage.

In case of rain, meet at the Craig Fire Station, 401 Yampa Ave. RSVP by calling 824-6231. Leave your name, telephone number and type of side dish you’ll be bringing.

The McDonald’s senior breakfast is Aug. 25. The noon potluck is Friday at Sunset Meadows I. Come see us and bring a friend.
