Midlife Perspective is a personal blog where Generation-X meets Generation Boomer. The purpose is for readers and the author to connect through reminiscing, interesting discussions, and sharing our unique life experiences.

about-page-meHello! I’m Ann Marie…a 56-year-old mom to two adult children and a grandma of six awesome grandkids. I’ve been divorced twice but have been single and not dating for the past 20 years. I enjoy the solitude and not having to worry about another person. It’s just me and my cat.

While I love the peacefulness of my life, being alone does leave me with a lot of time to think. About all sorts of things. Which is why I started this blog – to write down my thoughts even if no one reads it.

Also, I’m a Christian believer which is where my current values come from. I’m not good at it and mess up all of the time, but I am trying. If this bothers you, it’s okay. The choice to believe in God or not is up to each individual person.

What I Like:

  • Drinking ice-water and different flavored hot teas. No coffee.
  • Creating digital graphics and quotes.
  • Recycling. It’s one small thing I can do to help the environment.
  • Planting flowers and decorative grasses, and keeping my front porch tidy.
  • Meeting new people with whom I have things in common.

What I Don’t Like:

  • Crazy drivers! Road rage and people cutting me off.
  • Littering. Unbelievable that some folks are too darn lazy to walk to a trash can.
  • Rude, entitled, and snobby people. Being kind isn’t that difficult!

This is all I can think of for now. I hope it gives you a feel for who I am. As I add more content I hope to meet some of YOU in the comments!

Thanks for reading…
