And then it's Winter

You know, time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware of the passing years.


It seems just yesterday that I was young, married and embarking on my new life with my mate. And yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and I wonder where all the years went.

 

And I have glimpses of how it was back then and of all my hopes and dreams... But, here it is..the winter of my life and it catches me by surprise... How did I get here so fast? Where did the years go and where did my youth go?


I remember well...seeing older people through the years and thinking that those older people were years away from me and that winter was so far off that I could not fathom it or imagine fully what it would be like...  


But, here it is...my friends are retired and getting gray...they move slower and I see an older person now. Lots are in better shape than me... but, I see the great change...  Not like the ones that I remember who were young and vibrant... but, like me, their age is beginning to show and we are now those older folks that we used to see and never thought we'd be.  


Each day now, taking a nap is not a treat anymore...it's mandatory! Cause if I don't on my own free will..I just fall asleep where I sit!


And so, now I enter into this new season of my life unprepared for all the aches and pains and the loss of strength and ability to go and do things that I wish I had done but never did!!



But, at least I know, that though the winter has come, and I'm not sure how long it will last...this I know, that when it's over...its over....Yes , I have regrets. There are things I wish I hadn't done ,,,,,things I should have done, but indeed, there are many things I'm happy to have done.


It's all in a lifetime....


So, if you're not in your winter yet...let me remind you, that it will be here faster than you think. So, whatever you would like to accomplish in your life please do it quickly!  Don't put things off too long!!


Life goes by quickly.  So, do what you can today, as you can never be sure whether this is your winter or not!


You have no promise that you will see all the seasons of your life...so, live for good today and say all the things that you want your loved ones to remember...and hope that they appreciate and love you for all the things that you have done for them in all the years past!!


'Life is a gift to you. The way you live your life is your gift to those who come after.

 

Make it a fantastic one.'


BE HAPPY!!!----BE THANKFUL!!!!!

 

 

 I did not write this, but was deeply touched by the words and thought I'd pass it along.

It would be nice if couples could stay in love that long. Tender affection always gets to me. :)

When I and my husband were first married we'd see little old people holding hands. My hubby would point to them and say "That's us in a few years."

And here we are two middle aged married people still holding hands.

Yes, Diane. Time flies too quickly. lol. Wish I could slow it down a little. Makes me sad sometimes. Wish I had the energy I had twenty years ago.

I'm fifty, with two adult children and one who is twelve. She keeps my hopping and wears me out at the same time. :) Then three grandchildren.

Thank you for stopping by. I'm not much on blogging but I try at times. Happy Friday to you too!!

Great post! My husband and I were just talking about this and how it seemed like the years have gone by so quickly. We are both 60 and I'll be 61 this weekend. Where did the decades go?

You have a lovely website and blog! Have a Happy Friday, Lisa!
