EEK, (Pulling out my hair) Computers should be banned

Not that I'm upset or anything . . . but YES!! I am. Something is wrong with my computer and it has taken me forever to get to where I'm at, at this moment. I think I have a slimy worm.chewing up the inside of the hard drive. But enough of that, let me get on with what it is I would like to tell you.

69 years ago, today, April 10th, 1943, a baby girl was born two months early. She weight 4 lbs. 3 oz. She had no fingernails or toenails and looked like a skinned rabbit, so her father claimed. She wasn't supposed to live, but a special blessing was given her, and she was placed in an incubator, where she lived  for close to a month, and she survived.

That baby was me, if you  haven't guessed, already, but when I think about that moment in my life,  I'm reminded of the power of that special blessing, and I find myself asking the question, what is my purpose? Why did I live? and that thought makes me want to be the very best I can be at what I've chosen to do,

Whatever we choose to do in this life, takes us on a path that is almost invisible to us in the beginning. Then, as we continue on that path, it becomes more visible to us in our hearts and in our minds. We begin to understand what it is we want to become. And, we have become authors and authorship brings with it a great responsibility . . . a fun responsibility . . . an exciting and joyful accomplishment. And isn't  it great!!

Because it's my birthday, my husband is taking me to my favorite restaurant, The Red Lobster.

Another note. I really don't mind being 69. It just means that I'm still alive.

Have a great day.

Enjoy Red Lobster. Be sure to run Malwarebytes free version on your computer. It will get rid of any nasty worms that plague you.
