And So This Is Fifty by CliffMama
~:: CliffMama ::~
The strangest thing happened to me a week ago. I turned 50 years old. I don’t know how it could be possible. There’s no way I could be 50. I don’t feel it. I don’t look it. I don’t act like it. So where did the years go? As I reflect on how blessed I have been and ponder the upcoming challenges in my life, I come to the realization that my passion for rock climbing not only has given me much joy and blessings, but it also will help me overcome those challenges.
ABOUT JANNETTE: Since 1981, Jannette’s passion has been rock climbing. So after having children, she incorporated them into her climbing life as well. She formed a local family climbing group as a way for climbers with kids to find other families to climb with. With over 80 families in the group, she’s learned a lot about climbing with kids and created a blog about that subject on cliffmama.com which also features information for visitors to the Gunks in New York, where she climbs. Now awesome self-assured teenagers, she and her daughters share a special bond and they would rather be climbing with Mom than going to a shopping mall. When not climbing, Jannette is on the board of directors for the non-profit Gunks Climbers’ Coalition and works at a digital marketing agency.
