Yesterday…

Wednesday, February 12, 2014

Yesterday morning, I woke up and began going about my day like normal. Then I opened up my Facebook and saw the news that Shirley Temple passed away. This struck me harder than I would have ever thought. To explain this a little better, when I was a young child, before I realized that the people that I saw on television were not exactly the same age that I saw them portraying on television. In fact, at one point, I argued with my mother about how Shirley Temple was my age. If I am really honest with myself, I wanted to be her…or at least the “her” that I saw portrayed in the movies I watched. I was amazed with this girl. I wanted my hair to be curled like hers. There is a picture somewhere with my “Shirley Temple” curls. Yesterday morning, I teared up when I read about her passing. More research about her, confirmed what I already knew, that she was an amazing woman and accomplished a great deal. Her accomplishments remind me that I can accomplish my goals as well. I am not alone and there is definitely strength in numbers and with the support I have, there is no reason that I can’t. One step at a time, right?

    We feel our own age when someone we grew up with dies. For me the shock was John Lennon in 1980.
