Well, folks... it' official now... the gavel has been passed to me as of Saturday, Novemaber, 4, 2000 to serve the Ohio Art Education Association as their President! I've just returned from the 5 day convention in Cincinnati, feeling refreshed and renwed for the professional development and social support!
I was able to visit with Aunt Mary with a couple of hours before I headed to the conference. She is just as perky and funny as ever! she is staying in what they call a "lodge" after falling, but she wants to go back to her condo and try living by herself again.
When I asked her how it felt to be approaching 90 years old, she said she did not feel any different and that she did not know what to expect because no one in the family has ever lived to be 90... yet! She also commented that when she when into the dining room, she noticed that there were "alot of old people there" and that she felt out of place! (some of them, however, were "just 85"!)
Aunt Mary said she would pray for the rest of us every day. Sheila, by the way, is not well at all and needs all of our prayers.
My best to you all. L, Jill
