Thinking about time…

Thinking about time this
Tuesday Chatter

I don’t know what happens to the day.
It seems I get up to the sunshine and in a blink, it’s the moon I see.
I think time moves faster when one retires.
I thought it would move slower and I would get a lot done.
Nope, not happening.

I’m not complaining!
I have been enjoying my days of doing what little I do.
I would just like the time to mosey along and not be in such a hurry.
You may not understand this if you are young
but I am pretty sure you do if you are old(er) like me.

Maybe the rush of time has something to do with
having more of your time in the past than what is left for the future.
I am learning that living in the moment is sweet
and tomorrow is perhaps nothing more than a passing thought.

Ten Things of Thankful


  1. I am thankful that I have lived another year and look forward to the rest of the time I have here, however long that may be.
  2. For the cards and flowers friends sent celebrating my day.
  3. The friend who treated me to dinner and the friend who took me out to lunch. I had a great time with both of them. Such a blessing to have them in my life.
  4. A call from my friend who lives in West Africa wishing me a happy birthday.
  5. Spending time talking with a neighbor while sitting outside in the beautiful weather.
  6. My friend had her baby, a healthy baby boy. Both are doing well.
  7. Got my taxes done and blessed to have a refund coming my way.
  8. I am thankful for Pandora. I can listen to continuous music without the interruptions of disc jockey’s talking and bothersome advertising. I also like that they have lots of choices of types of music.
  9. I am thankful that my niece survived a usually fatal illness and that she no longer needs dialysis and is back at work.
  10. I am so very thankful that my wants are few and what needs I may have are always met often in remarkable ways. There is always enough to see me through whatever the circumstances may be.

It has been an awesome week!
