Good Morning my friends, I hope that today will be a good one for you.
I have been asked many times why I call this blog Chatty Crone. Well for one thing I am kind of chatty - I admit that, and to tell you the truth the blog is one place I can be chatty, and no one can stop me!
No matter who comments or who doesn't; it's still an expression of oneself. I think it is important in life to be able to express yourself. It's a double blessing when you get a comment because that means someone is listening to what you have to say.
I believe the greatest gift I can conceive of having from anyone is to be seen by them, heard by them, to be understood and touched by them. The greatest gift I can give is to see, hear, understand and to touch another person. When this is done I feel contact has been made.

Some people think of crones as old, wrinkled, and dried out . Sometimes crones are made fun of by younger people; however, these are the ones that will miss out from the gifts of the crone. Crones might have wrinkles and look old, but they can be fun, vibrant, and spicy - and while the skin on the outside may look dry - the inside is not! Think of the wrinkles as badges of courage, however not every older woman is a crone.
The crone is a woman of experience and because of her age she has become wise. Wisdom comes though living loving, fearing, hoping, sorrow, pain, and joy. They could be a mentor to the younger woman if allowed.
A crone has had MANY joys in her life - and the older the crone gets the more she appreciate those joys.
The crone hopefully has found to be grateful for not only the big things in life, but for the little things in life as well.
A crone has also experienced sorrow - and if they live through it and come out the other side - they become very strong.
"The secrets of life and death and the mysteries beyond this world" - means the older a crone getting closer to the end. The older they get, the closer they become trying to make peace with what is to come.
For me personally I've developed a closer relationship with God.
It's true - the more you see death - the less afraid of it one becomes. So while a crone is living her life on earth - she also has her eye on Heaven - knowing what's to come is inevitable; yet not concentrating on it because there is life to be lived and lived fully to the best of their ability. Which is my quote in my heading.
Crones like to see new places and do new things which at times they can't physically or financially do, but they can always dream.
Well, these are just some thoughts I've been thinking about. If Jack reads this I guess a male crone is a croner? They have a lot to offer as well. ☺
What do you think about older people? Honestly. Do you have a crone in your life or are you a crone to someone? .
Have a good week.
