What matters most to me..

by Brenda
(New Hampshire)

Hello, After just joining Elegant Woman, I'm looking forward be with you, and hoping that I can contribute something of worth.

I learn my manners and social graces from my paternal grandmother. She was lovely, serene and absolutely one of the most put together women I've ever known. I'm sure this is a legacy that she carried to my generation and now beyond.

I'm 69 years old, and perhaps am much older than most here. My philosophy of life has changed over the years. Married to a military man, traveling very much of those years with our five children, was one of the most enjoyable and yet difficult times.

Now my husband and I are blessed to have our children and grandchildren nearby. I love being a Grandmother and try to be a good role model to our 5 granddaughters and 5 grandsons.

Being a lady in the most trying circumstances is a Gift. I've learned over the years that having a relationship with God and reading His Word, has given a calmness and serenity that I'm helpless to attain on my own. To speak a kind word or share another's burden is a humbling and uplifting experience.

It's relatively easy to learn the basics of being an elegant lady, but putting them into practice and touching others lives is another thing entirely. It's God who takes us through and refines us so we have the qualities that matter most.

Hello Brenda,

I enjoyed reading your 'post'.

Firstly, I wanted to say how lovely and serene you look, I think your gran would be extremely proud of you.

Secondly, I'm sure with your rich experience of life you have plenty of experiences to share.

I'm a 31 year old English woman just embarking upon my journey towards Elegance. I feel there is something missing in the world and I hope my journey with Eunice who is now a role model along with the beautiful Kate Middleton will change this.

I've just finished reading "Secrets of elegance" and have already made some massive changes in my life. I have even started to reap the rewards with kind comments and observations from others.

I have a lot to thank Eunice and this site for.
