Yesterday...( had been since Thanksgiving )...My how they change, He reminds of a very cute frog. :lol:
My recent turn in life has lent way to quiet reflection...

I held him up high, and he started to cry, and I blew air towards his face, and he stopped crying and smiled...

Quiet reflection goes deep in me, and I thought about " time "...
Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow...

Personal happiness, Financial happiness all relate to " time "...
Time on this earth...

The older I get, I realize time is our biggest currency...

You can have all the money you can have, unlimited...

Personal happiness flowing over your cup...
but...You only have so much " time "...

Youth has no such reflection of time...It's only with age do we start to reflect on time...

My Mother would say " when she was giving me the riot act "...In time you will understand...
In my quiet relection, Time is on my mind these days

Don't let " time " slip away, because " In time you will understand "

PS...I told you quiet refection goes deep in me :lol:

The older I get, the faster time flies by. I am sitting on the couch next to my Grandson watching him sleep......thinking about you and Damien and Carolina's friend's baby. Pass the tissues, please!

Nicely said Dan. I work very hard to 'live in the moment' and not be thinking or planning 'what's next' or what 'needs to be done next'.

BP, you'll spend lots of time with your grandson.

Your words are spot on...time is really flying the older I get. I try to enjoy every minute of it and hope you will too.
