Time Is Going Too Fast

Ginnie BakerI can’t believe it’s the end of October already and winter is just around the corner. My mom always said, “The older you get, the faster time goes by.” In the past, I never really believed her. Now I do!

The garden, for all intents, is history for 2014. There are still a few hardy herbs but everything else is gone.

I coordinate our Bellville adult Safety Patrol, making sure our elementary students get safely to and from school. Several mornings, it’s been on the cold side and it makes me shiver to think what this winter could bring us as we stand outside at 7:30 a.m.

Ginnie, time does seem to go by faster when we are older. I have cousins and friends that tell me that each day seems to drag by and take forever to end. Then they ask, "don't you think so"? I am always amazed at that question. It's always from those that are unmarried and haven't figured out what to do with their life. I'm a confirmed bachelor guy that doesn't have enough time in the day to get every thing done. I relish times when I can just sit quietly and enjoy listening to nature or reading a good book. In my humble opinion, days do not have to drag by nor do they have to be endured instead of enjoyed. It's a great time to be alive, don't you think? ***** Have a great day whizzing through life. :-)
