Times Flies By

Boy oh boy...Can you believe that the month of January is just about over? Where did this month go? Seems like it was just the beginning of the new year. And now here it is almost February!

Is it just me or does time seem to be going by faster and faster the older we get? I remember as a kid thinking, man I can not wait to become an adult! Now I find myself thinking the opposite! LOL Guess that is why I will never ever grow up. Or at least never loose the child that is still inside of me!

Still though I find it hard to believe that Valentines Day is just a mere 19 days away. You know it will be here sooner than we think! That the days will surely just roll by in a flash. Yet there are probably some who will disagree and say that time goes by way to slow. Especially when they are at work or doing something they really do not want to be doing!

To me you sort of realize more how time passes you by so quickly when you run into people that you have not seen in years. An example would be like yesterday for my husband Mike. See he had to go to a funeral for an old friend he had worked with. The company they worked for has been closed for 13 years! Yep, that long and Mike did not realize it till he seen all of his old co-workers at the funeral and they got to talking. When he got home, he really looked down trodden. That they all felt bad how they had lost touch with each other, etc. But did exchange phone numbers, addresses, e-mails, etc. Plus the promise to keep in touch. Hoping that another 13 years do not pass by or a funeral happens to bring them all together again! I truly do hope they keep in touch. Which leads me to say this. Though time appears to fly by, we can stop and enjoy it. Plus try not to forget your friends, family and anyone who may have made a difference in your life! More so before they pass away!

So here is to not wishing or trying to hurry your life along! Blessings to you all. And know that I am not going to be watching the clock today! LOL Instead I am just going to enjoy listening to my Lucky lay here snoring the day away. Plus watch Sadie Bella run in and out of the doggie door chasing whatever catches her fancy at the time!

That was lovely. Time does seem to just fly by ... which makes it so important to enjoy every single second. And thank you for the wonderful reminder to not forget the people in our lives that have made a difference.

Have a wonderful day!

Hi! Thanks for popping in and commenting on my blog. You'll quickly realize that I LOVE to talk about my pups! The poor cats really don't get equal time (of course, they don't do as much, either...).

You're right about losing track of time, though. It amazes me every time I stop and think about how long I've been in my house, or how old my animals are. It doesn't feel like its possible that Belle will be 12 this April. After all, she was a kitten just yesterday. Wasn't she?

How true this is! I can't believe Josie is about to be 4! It's crazy. Plus the older I get the younger everyone else seems. :)

so true! Life is going by so fast and YES before you know it--all of us will be gone. I know that--and that is why I want to get out of the full time working outside the home. I want to be NOT tired when I see my grandchildren,,,and I want to have time for my friends...camping etc. It really bothers me how much life is moving on.

Yes, time does fly by as we age. I remember being a kid and it would seem like eternity if you had to wait an hour. Now...
