Time is such a peculiar thing... our clocks measure it in precise intervals but our experiences deny that fact... for minutes, even seconds can stretch into a seeming eternity, while whole years can vanish with hardly a distinct memory at all! How can it be that I am fast coming up on 60 years of life and four decades of marriage... yet I also remember nights with sleepless babies that I thought would never end.
As a task-oriented person, I tend to summarize the year in terms of projects completed, goals attained, and in general, items crossed off my "to do" list. Even now I am quite pleased to have all the year-end bookkeeping done and my 2015 photo yearbook complete and delivered. Perhaps that is why I was drawn to capture the above reminder at the home of a friend. I have in fact lived long enough to know the truth of that statement.
... and now I can cross one more thing off my "to do" list... a year end blog post!
Happy New Year and Blessings in 2016!
