Life is short, I seem to say that every day now......but it's true, even if I live to be 100 years old. This week has been a golden opportunity, for me to think and re-evaluate my life. I suppose we all do this from time to time.....
we get a wake up call, a scare, a bucket of cold water thrown in our face. I tell myself that I am making every minute count, but then, you know the drill........life happens. There are fires to be put out, friends who need a shoulder, plans and dreams are put on hold......and you go along until one of the fires is you.......then you know
it is time to re-evaluate, to be honest and truthful to yourself,
and hopefully you will have friends and family in your life that will lend you a shoulder.
Today is July 1st.......that is impossible! 2011 is half over, this cannot be! See how short life is?
Unless you're twenty-one or three, and then time is dragging by, so slow, will it ever speed up? When does the curve and a switch in lanes happen? One day you're looking out the window of a high school class room, praying to leave and spread your wings, and in the blink of an eye.......you're on a roller coaster going so fast it takes your breath.
It has been a beautiful day, a sky that was so blue and cloudless it looked like a technicolor movie, warm and low humidity. I had wonderful classes, Jordan spent the morning with me, I got a phone call that made my day, Rick picked Ingrid up from the car doc. Little things maybe, but today......those little things were incredibly special. I am not going to wear my watch this weekend, I want to savor the the minutes, and hold them dear, because you know.....life is short, even if I live to be 100.
