You might not know this but her husband received the best birthday gift ever seven years ago - twin boys. Yup, that's right twins were born on their dad's birthday.

Anyway we've been a little busy around here with all that celebrating, which in a round-about way brings me to my post. I've been reading the February O Magazine. There is a article in there called "You In Six Words." In part it says, "Sure, your life story could fill a thousand pages - but sometimes a few words are all you need."
It's a fun read and a fun thing to do. Here are some of my faves from the magazine:
- Still fit into high school earrings. Kimberly Kilroy - okay that might be my favorite cause it's too funny!
- Carjacked in the Tunnel of Love. - Cheryl Diane Kidder - perfect for a February issue.
- Recipe for failure. Changed my ingredients. - Antonee Boykin
- Survived the divorce. Learned to Live. - Laurel Hadley
- I've made all the best mistakes. - Jessica McKeen-Grabell
- I never say just six words. - Hayley Smith
- Attitude adjustment courtesy of Sara Lee. -Kathleen Olson
- Count my joys, not my woes. - Debra Smith
- Just ate lunch. What's for dinner? - Lynn Andriani (I think that describes my grandsons!)
- Life is short, buy the shoes. - Sara Nelson (Amen, Sister.)
- Aging sucks. Bangs better than Botox - Clarissa Cruz.
- You have always had the power. - Glinda the Good Witch (Wizard of Oz)
Love. Hate. Love. Hate. My elliptical.
- Looking for something. Found something else.
- My heart is pumping for love.
My ultimate six words are :
Most important accomplishments. My Three Kids.
I have a rich and rewarding life from my three children. I have their spouses and one soon to be spouse who I love to hang out with. I have three beautiful grandchildren and more to come, I hope! And I have grandpets to feed my pet love, without having any myself. I am a lucky, lucky girl.
Try out six words for yourself. It's fun and something of a soul searching activity to do.
