I was visiting one of my favorite blogs, A Romantic Porch, and Rachel was speaking of time. Time is a subject that stays on my mind much more than I want it to and much more than it should. I left a comment and while I was doing so it occurred to me that I should put those thoughts on my blog too. I need my family and friends to understand me and what is important to me.
I'm going to be 62 in September and every single day I have thoughts of time going too quickly. There are so many things I'd like to experience; so many people I'd like to meet and love. So many projects I'd like to begin and finish. So many kisses I need to give my children and my grandchildren and my friends. So many smiles and hugs I want to share. I so enjoy my life now and what I do with it but I experience feelings of guilt when I'm checking my favorite blogs or find myself at a standstill, gazing out the window at God's beautiful world and its creatures.
Am I using my time wisely? How much more time do I have? Do I want to know? These are questions that undoubtedly have been asked, by millions, for eons before me; none have been able to come back and give us the answers!
This I can tell you: As you grow older, time passes faster and faster. It's Monday morning and then it's Sunday evening and you find yourself spinning through time so quickly that it is frightening! So hold on to all of the moments and they will add up to a lot of life truly lived. When my time comes to an end, I hope I have run out of kisses and hugs because I know I do not want to take any with me.
Have a wonderful day and enjoy your time!
