I looked on FB and saw a friends son had turned 14 and felt this sense of shock go through me. Surely not!! Wasn't it just yesterday he was born? 14 years has passed in a blur of activity. Did I enjoy those years and could I savor their memories?
I realize we live so much of our lives in a time that is not "now", but rather yesterday or tomorrow, next week, next year. I felt a jolt of the realization that hope formnext year is somewhat (lol) more limited than before. How would a person go about living every moment to its fullest? Maybe some of you have thoughts on this you could share with the rest of us. My first thought was "that sounds like a big job to me". To consciously grab each and every moment and draw from it the sweetness. Yet I desire to do just that. My moments might last 30 minutes with a sweet grandchild(ren) or a walk in nature at the changing of a season, but I shall breathe in deep the joy of the activity.
Speaking of activity, LOL, I will be at the Clyde W Roddy Library in Dayton TN this Thursday afternoon from 4-6 p.m. I would love to see friends and readers there. If you already have a book and want it signed, i will be glad to do that. There will be books that can be purchased for $10 each, and I will be signing. Just come by and say hello!
