There comes a time in life when you get old enough to really speak your mind. Maybe this isn't something that you would have done when you were younger.
This has happened to me. Once a quiet (when controversy, Gabby the rest of the time) I shunned to not get involved. I was afraid of what would happen or how someone might feel. Now it isn't that I don't care it's is just something comes over me and I have to speak my mind. Much of this came into play when my Parents were in the hospital and they were going to be treated right and with dignity.
It is not that I am that ol' grumpy woman. I am happy with myself inside so therefore I am at peace. All that goes on around me it only here for a time.
I see it this way nobody knows what you are thinking if you don't let them know. Women's rights these days are under attack.

- If somebody cuts in line before you, "Excuse me the back of the line is (and point).
- Your boss is asking you to do more than you can do. Ask him if it can wait until you get other jobs completed.
- Your children are actin up, let them know. Explain, talk to them.
- Walk with your head held high! You are a WOMAN!
