Welcome to My Blog

I Choose How I Will Spend the Rest of My Life

I am so glad you found your way to my blog.

Over the coming weeks, months and hopefully, years, I want to share with you all that  I have found about staying young in both mind and body.

Grandsons several years ago Now all grown up.

There is so much information available these days on every subject and I wanted to add my own experiences and comments to those sharing their experiences on the subject.


So please come with me on my journey.  My plan is write a blog most days but sometimes I am called upon to be Granma or G to my grandsons.  I may have to miss the blog on those days.

I would love to hear from you.  What you think about my journey and more importantly, about your journey.

You can leave a comment on my blog or contact me on judith@judithbaxter.net.nz


“Next time a sunrise steals your breath or a meadow of flowers leaves you speechless, remain that way. Say nothing, and listen as heaven whispers, “Do you like it? I did it just for you.” — Max Lucado

Look forward to hearing from you.

  1. Thanks for finding my “I am” blog entry. I have been ill for the last few days and am now starting to catch up on things. I have enjoyed looking at your photos and reading your entries. I love your gratitude list.

    • Jenny thanks for taking the time to reply. I d hope the strep throat is getting better. From so many years ago I remember how difficult it was with small children when one is sick.

      Take care I will follow your blogs from the other side of the world.

  2. The best part of blogging is dicovering other blogs. I’m so glad you found mine because now I can enjoy yours. Happy Mother’s Day!

  3. Congratulations!! You have been awarded The Versatile Blogger Award. Stop by at comingeast.com to see more details.

  4. Surfing the waves of the web I am pleasantly stranded in your interesting blog.

    I write under the pseudonym of Josè Pascal (a descendant of the great Colonel Aureliano Buendía).

    I invite you to visit my “italianglish” writing blog http://parolesemplici.wordpress.com/mytinbox/.

    I define this blog “In parole Semplici” as a “virtuacultural tin” box where they are guarded thoughts, memories, images, sounds, and simple stories”.

    I dream an intercultural blog. Already involves more than 100 authors/friends.

    If you want to participate and to have more informations send me a letter to inparolesempli@gmail.com

    Good life and I hope to soon

  5. Hi there Jose. I visited your bog and liked it. I have sent you an email as requested. Hope to hear from you soon. 🙂

  6. Judith! You are such an inspiration! To experience loss and go on to inspire others is a high calling. My regards – Terry

  7. Judith … just heard about an earthquake near Christchurch. I hope you and your loved ones are safe. You are in my thoughts.

  8. Hello Lenore Diane. Thank you for your concern. I have some of my family – son daughter in law and their two children about 300 miles from where the quake was centered. Cellphone coverage is not good where they are but I have sent them a text. No serious damage anywhere has been reported, no loss of life and only minor injuries. We in NZ are certainly being looked after by someone or something. The people in Christchurch and the surrounds must wonder when it will ever stop.
    Again, thanks for thinking of us at this time. 🙂

  9. I am happy to hear all is well – relatively speaking, Judith.

  10. I love your blog. Hope you inspire more people. More power!
