A New Year Begins
Wow, we're at the end of yet another year - my how they pass so quickly. Time really does fly by faster each year. I hear Winston complain about how long it's taking for him to grow up - he can hardly wait until he's old enough to have his own pocket knife and bb gun. I remember feeling this way as a child - that time was crawling by.
As a grownup, I'm so surprised by how quickly the weeks and months fly by. It seems that Winston was born just last year and not more than 5 years ago already. I worry about missing his growing up, which despite his complaints is happening at a rapid rate. There's a lot to be said for seizing the moment and stopping to smell the flowers - don't wait until you're less busy - time doesn't wait for you and you'll miss all those special moments.
I welcome this new year and look forward to all it will bring. I hope there will be more good kind of experiences than difficult ones, but will take all that is to come. I'll try my best to learn and grow and cherish each day. Happy New Year!
"How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and the strong because at some point in your life, you will have been all of these."
“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children...to leave the world a better place...to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
