Yesterday I was growing really antsy, with all this white stuff around, the dark dreary days of winter and having to be cooped up in the house, so I took a walk down to the gardens, and then on to the beach searching for snowy owls. It was super to see the sun shining after the 12 inches Mother Nature dropped on us the day before.
As I walked about checking for damages, I couldn’t help but imagine what will be here before we know it! Only forty days left!! And in my mind I stood there envisioning what will be added to the gardens this year, and what I’ll do away with… but in all honesty, as much of a nice sunny wintry day it was….. I’d much rather be seeing this!! S P R I N G!
Hold on– did a decade, or two just pass me by? Uh? What exactly did I do with the last year? Or this past week for that matter. It did. Somewhere between life, work and the everyday things we all do, someone must have hit the fast-forward button. Time may march, or ebb or fly, or simply just creep on by us, but for me it’s simply escaped me. But today, it was a very different one for me… I reconnected with dear old friends that I hadn’t seen in what we calculated…over twenty years. And we’ve known each other for better than sixty..but who’s counting?
We shared tea and recalled many of the ‘old days’, re-visited old photographs and tried to catch up on everyone’s lives. What a fun afternoon it was! Thanks so much Marylou and Lissa for reminiscing and such a nice visit back at the Clock Farm. I promise…it won’t be another twenty before we visit again.
Happy and healthy New Year all!
This Christmas Day, celebrate the loved ones you still have in your life and allow yourself to believe that you will see all those you love again one day.
Buon Natale! Merry Christmas to all!
May 2014 bring you peace in your heart and joy in your days.
