that Troy wrote about TIME for his introduction this week, so it gave me an idea to run with the same topic. Thanks, Troy!
I agree with Troy when he questions "Where has the time gone?" I think about this in terms of my life, the lives of my children and grandchildren, the fact that my parents are now gone and I'm the "next generation" to look forward to whatever comes next.
I think about Lorne and me and how we loved each other so long ago and still totally love each other today. Where did those years go when we were apart? I'm am so grateful that we're together again at last...for eternity now!
I think about my late husband and find it almost unbelievable that it has been 22 years since he died. He never got to see the Internet or all the technological advances of today's society. He would have loved it!
I think about the births of my daughters and it seems like it was only yesterday! But now they are both married ladies, one of whom is also a mother. I think about the births of these grandchildren and wonder how one is already in double digits and halfway through elementary school. I took this photo of them down at Centennial Beach when they stayed over for a few nights summer of 2012.
think about the pets I've had because life to me is not total without a cat or dog (which I prefer) to which I can give total unconditional love and from which I receive the same. Tegan is now our baby girl and I love her so much!
true that the older we get, the faster time seems to travel. With that in mind, I try to make a point of living each moment to its fullest. For example, today when I was tutoring my 10-year-old grandson, I lifted up his long curly hair to look in his ear and told him "Yes, you do have a brain in there!" and we both laughed! And I will never ever forget when my 6-year-old granddaughter Eden told me I looked like a "Princess Bride" on my wedding day!
thank everyone for all the good wishes sent to us through this blog! We may be well into the autumn of our lives now, but we are so thankful for all our friends who took the time to wish us well. We are still looking forward to a honeymoon and hopefully it's not in the too distant future since Lorne will be having his surgery on June 11th. Hopefully, he will bounce back and be well enough for us to have a "mini-moon" in September.
Thanks also to the trendy Mrs. Nesbitt, creator of ABC Wednesday and to the talented Roger, our administrator, without whom we might be terribly tardy with our contributions to ABCW. Have a terrific week!
PS: Did you notice that I used mauve for the highlighted words this week? That was the accent colour for our wedding! And did you notice that my shoes were mauve silk?

- I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.
