To whom do you express thanks? Family and friends.
Do you recall a special teacher you had in school?
I am grateful for Mom and Dad and my grandparents.
It turns out that our first teachers are our parents.
Do you still hear their voices telling you of their love?
Do you smell that apple pie baking in the oven?
Do you hear the piano being played and Mom and
Dad singing their songs? Those memories linger on..
I am thankful for our four seasons, the birds and
gardens. Golden beets and greens still grow and thrive.
When our two children were born, a friend told me
not to blink. Before you know it, they will be in school.
Life has a habit of passing quickly when we blink. True.
Just look: our two are done with college and married.
We are empty nesters. Life intervenes. Never stuck
in the mundane, we remain active and hopeful. We
blinked and now will become grandparents. Tempus
fugit. The young wish they could be older and vice versa.
That’s life. Accept it and be joy-filled. Try not to
blink too much. Give of yourselves. Love will increase.
