Who, Indeed, Knows Where the Time Goes?


Some days, it's hard to know where the time goes.

We have so many things to accomplish, so many errands to run.

Before we know it, the day is done.

Worse yet, before we know it, life is done.

Yes, life goes by so quickly, doesn't it?

Sometimes I want to stop the years from flying by. 

It's easy to want to re-live a few days when my kids were little, when their hugs and kisses were payment for being a stay-at-home-mom.

The kids are gone now and grand kids are here.  

Where, indeed, did the time go? 

We cannot stop the passage of time but we can enjoy each precious moment.

Judy Collins sang a most beautiful song that still pulls on my heart, all these years later. 

It was titled, "Who Knows Where the Time Goes?"
It was such a beautiful song.

Enjoy today. Now. This moment. It's all we
have.

DO YOU SOMETIMES WONDER WHERE THE TIME GOES?

AngelsWatching


Have you heard the song, "Angels Watching Over Me?"

Part of the words are "All night , all day, angels watching over me, my Lord..."

The lyrics are quite comforting.

I don't know about you, but thinking about angels is not something done frequently.

However, I do believe in them and also believe they have certain protective powers, given to them by God.

A dear, life-long friend, Patti, gave me the beautiful, chippy angel that's shown in this post.

As mentioned before, she's had a rough go, health-wise, this past year.

She's getting better and stronger every day, though, and today is her birthday. 

May angels continue to watch over her (and all of us) and make miracles in our lives.

WHAT, IF ANYTHING, DO YOU BELIEVE ABOUT ANGELS?

The Beauty of a Fall Arrangement


One of the best $8 purchases I made at a yard sale last summer was a big, bursting-with-color arrangement of fall flowers.

Even the metal container in which they were arranged was attractive.


Come fall, the bouquet fit in perfectly on the front hall table vignette.

Flanked by old-fashioned amber glass lamps, the whole scenario has been a welcome sight for many weeks.


The flowers and lamps will stay on the table until right after Thanksgiving.  

Then, they will be whisked up to attic storage to make way for, you guessed it, the magical Christmas holidays!


WHAT IS ONE THING FOR WHICH YOU ARE MOST GRATEFUL THIS THANKSGIVING?
