This morning I called a dear friend in Canada to chat. I was not able to understand his words at all. I could guess at what he was saying. How times have changed. A person – once so perky – once such a sharp business man – once enjoying driving the car – once enjoying playing golf with my husband – once – once – once.
Life has a way of not necessarily passing you by but slowly, occasionally, ripping at the seams of your “other years” – “other times”, when life was not full of slurps – when life brought challenges – when the good times arrived and you wondered if in later years, you would be able to remember them.
It is the later years now for me. I have so much to be thankful for. As my day continue to progress slowly, the dumb, the stupid, the ignorant continue to fade and the good days – the good times are there in the heart and mind. How long will they be? Who knows. Only my Lord knows that. But for what He gives me today – I know I am so thankful.
May your day be as blest as mine.
In His Loving Grasp ~~~ Marge
