What Personally Brings Me Joy

November 5, 2020

There’s a lot of things that I do for myself that are also done with other people, but I get so much enjoyment out of it that it really makes me happy. And the one big thing is I love to listen to hymns and I play handbells. I folk dance, I’ve taken Zumba classes, and I play the ukulele. I’ve just started this in July. And later on, I’d like to do something for everyone because I’ve got an assignment from my ukulele teacher. I also love to look through memorabilia.

I hate to throw memorabilia out, that’s one thing. My place that I feel so content, which I’ve mentioned before is like Geneva George Williams college. And I love to sit on the pier or rock in the rocking chair. I volunteer through Special Olympics and Rainbow Hospice. One of my favorite things I’d love to do this summer is to sit out on my patio in the back. And it just became so peaceful this summer. I’ve been in this house all my life, but I’ve never sat on the patio as many times as I’ve done this summer.

And I also love to do jigsaw puzzles, and I particularly like to do them on my iPad, then I don’t lose any of the pieces. I put puzzles together, too, and I framed them. And when we go down to Florida, I always have to bring a puzzle for the group to do when we’re there for a week. As I mentioned, I’m taking ukulele lessons. I’ve taken them since early July, but the assignment is to play and sing a song when you’re not looking at the music out of the 14 songs that we worked on.

So I picked one of the songs and I played it once before for somebody. And then I’m gonna play for my cousins before December when we have to announce what we’ve been playing. And the other thing I wanted to say is I really am a very shy person. And so these Zoom meetings have been so wonderful to let me speak my stories and all the things that I do. So thank you very much.
