I’ve been sitting here at the kitchen table eating biscuits and gravy, trying to decide how comfortable I am with self promotion.  And I’ve concluded that I am not.  Modesty is what I’m comfortable with, even if sometimes I come across as anything but modest.  However in this instance, I am not being modest and I admit it.

As plenty of you know, I am in daily contact with people who are at that stage of life where the eternal is but a step away.  Many of my friends who are in the line of work dealing with the elderly and those on hospice know, we are constantly blessed by their presence in our lives, and no matter the duration of our acquaintance, they have made an impact.  Now here comes the boasting.  I feel really appreciative that the online magazine Blog Nosh has decided to use one of my posts that deal with death, today.  You can read more about it here: #mce_temp_url#.  It is titled Embedded in Time.

Thank you for allowing me to brag a little.

    hmmm, i don’t know what to say to you dear Angie about bragging…:0

    maybe this will help… i heard a sermon on sunday about us keeping account of the blessings and abundance of God. i thought how incredibly beautiful. Angie you have a beautiful gift for writing and inspiration.

    and i read a poem that says God is pleased to hear our songs… and i’ll add our writings and paintings …..

    i read your piece in blog nosh! i like it so much. your words tap into my love, appreciation, admiration and respect for lovely elder persons.

    congratulations and well done! i hope you’ll celebrate. i’m so into celebrating everything now.

    sending congratulatory hugs to dear You!

    Brag away, sister-friend! I’m off to read your post that was in Noah, but I just wanted to say that I really appreciate what your friends do, because it does make such a difference. You think that it is you that is doing the favor when you spend time with the elderly, but I find that it’s the other way around. My son and I go to the “home” in our village and visit all the time - what started out as total strangers and have become our loved ones.

    Being aware of the limitations of this lifetime of ours is a real blessing. There is nothing more precious than that, I find. Worrying about our eternal dwelling. Trying to be in contact with the One who made us. I try to keep all that in mind, no matter how caught up by the pleasures of this life I could get. Because this will all pass away. the eternal not.

    I love this piece. The first time I read it was soon after losing a good friend. I cried and cried. This time I cried again.

    Congrats Angie!!! I read your article and it was so beautiful! I love it! Thanks for sharing! I am a modest girl too, but a little bragging can always be fun if the time is right! This is certaintly one of those times! :)

    I meant to add more…It is inspiring because I felt grateful and appreciative of life, all it’s gifts. I think age is beauty, too. It offers so many more memories, accomplishments, and wisdoms over youth.

    Congrats! That’s tough, staring that in the face every day. I don’t know if I can do it. I work with quite a few middle-aged people who are getting close to retirement and I think a lot about how one day that will be me…and I’ll look back and wonder where the years went.
