Has it Been a Year?

It has been a year since I posted, and what a year.   It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...  :)  What a year.
But this year is better and different so I promise to be better and post more often.

Boy George (you remember him?) had  it right... Time won't give me time.  John Lennon said, "All we need is love."  But we all need more time...or do we?  We are all given 24 hours to each day.  It is the only "thing" in this life that we are all given equally.  It is what we each do with this 24 hour day that defines us, that makes us who we are, that makes us happy.  Then there are things we "have" to do each day, that we really have no choice of.  But that doesn't take up all 24 hours.

So do you, like me, fill all the awake hours with "doing"?  Or do you find time in your busy day for "being"?  Now that sprummer is upon us ~ not a typo ~ as we don't really have a spring here.  Our spring is basically wind blowing us right into summer.  A few days of moderate weather then HOT, HOT, HOT, hits us.  Where was I?, oh yea, now that it is warmer, I sit on my porch in the evening and just "be" a little.  Just breathe in and out and Just Be.   It is a wonderful time.  I have to admit the first few times I try it, it is hard.  The "I Shoulds" keep trying to butt in, but as I practice this a little each day, the time gets a little longer, the "I Shoulds" get a little quieter, and I feel more refreshed.  And ready to start my 24 hours again.  Life is good.

 Ah, life.

      Yes all is good in our world and we have a new granddaughter, or she will be "ours" legally next month. So now I have a Sweetpea and a Rosebud! My "grandmothers flower garden" is growing. And I will be on the Big Island in November!

  2. Yes....the old saying "Take time to smell the roses" is sooooo smart....

    Glad things are well with hubby.

    1. Yes it is Barb, it is a beautiful way to live. And thank you!
