Whew, where'd the time go?
I am amazed by the travel of time it moves without you knowing it. Marking that passage in some way is what brings it's movement into view.
As I look around and think about my family and life, I couldn't be happier. There has been sadness but there has also been great joy. I know there is more sadness ahead as we age, as my parents and siblings age but the joy of this moment is fulfilling and as I mentioned, I'm blessed and I thank the good Lord daily for what he has given me.
Being thankful for all the parts of life, even the not so pretty parts, helps us appreciate and recognize how lucky we are. Today the sun is shining, the ground is covered with snow, my nephew is celebrating his 11th birthday with cake and ice cream later this afternoon, how could it be any better?
