The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Feb. 1/2020. Choice.

It is the First Saturday in February and LindaGHill said: ” Your Friday for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “choices.” Base your post on the subject of making small, uneventful choices. Enjoy!”

The Hoosiers and Choices, what has that got to do with my post today.. Not a lot really apart from the Title and the strange Japanese style video, (our Linda lives a Japanese group called Buck Tick)

Choices can be large or small and you never know what affect they can have on your life. Let me give you some examples. Fifty four years ago I went to a youth club with my friend Anne. I met a young man there … I was thirteen he was seventeen, had I not chosen to speak to him I would not be living the life I am today with three sons and two grandsons. Yes he became my husband.

That was a small choice that led to a big choice, to say hello and then later the choice to say yes.

Another small choice to help a blind lady by taking her guide dog, who was only sixteen months old, out for her free exercise . This choice let to Ruby becoming a permanent member of our family after her retirement.

If I had not chosen to write out my feelings after breaking my back a second time and finding bit so hard to recover, I would never of started blogging and I would never of met all these beauties!
