So tell me where does time go? And why is it going wherever it goes faster now than it used to? Is just because I am older? I know I am not busier than I was when I was young.
It is now about seven o’clock. I have been up twelve hours. I went for a walk, did some cleaning (sort of), talked to a couple of friends on the phone, ate, played with the cats, set up tomorrow’s In other Words, read the paper and did the puzzles, read and responded to emails, took a nap…just stuff. Doesn’t seem like twelve hours of stuff, does it?
So, where did the time go? My ditzy mind wants to know.
My grandfather, Pa, died when I was about two. Gramma and my aunt lived together. My aunt worked and had friends she spent time with leaving Gramma alone a lot of the time so I often stayed with her.
My favorite memory of her is when one night as she was tucking me into bed I told her the quilt was too heavy. That is when she told me about the Angels. She said it wasn’t the quilt that seemed heavy it was my Guardian Angel sitting there getting comfortable for the night. I had never heard of Guardian Angels! Gramma said everybody gets one when they are born and while we live they never leave us. She said that even when we are hurt or something bad happens they are with us so all will be well with our soul. And when we die they go with us on that last journey and make sure we know our way around heaven. Then they are reassigned and go on to meet their new baby. How awesome!
From then on I believed without a doubt that I have a Guardian Angel. I am sure there have been times I have given my Angel reason to ask for another assignment. I am just as sure there has never been a time my Angel has left me unattended and alone. I cannot imagine life without this blessing. I will always be grateful for Gramma telling me about Guardian Angels.
hi peoples! it’s me, teddy.
i have sneaked onto mama’s blog
because she won’t open mine and i have something to tell you.
this will show her who the smart one is.
i have this really neat toy
well, it’s jack’s toy, too.
it’s on a stick kinda furry like with feathers on the end.
really fun when mama swirls it around and up and down
though jack is a bother and gets in the way a lot.
before mama goes to work she puts the wiggler
in the drawer and hides it away.
She was in a big hurry and didn’t have time to waste.
They told her it was right down this hall and on the left.
There sure were a lot of doors and she was running out of time.
She couldn’t read the words on the doors and now couldn’t remember
which way was right and which way was left.
Oh boy, she really really really needed to go potty.
It is written in English.
I read, speak, and write English.
I have no idea what this says.
A mandelbulb is a three-dimensional analogue of the Mandelbrot set, a mathematical set of points whose boundary is a distinctive and easily recognizable two-dimensional fractal shape.
