Days go by

For me, the count-down is always on….. 5 more sleeps until the weekend, 9 more sleeps until I go to Georgia, 80 more sleeps until Meagan comes home for a summer holiday, 87 more sleeps until we go to Las Vegas, 208 more sleeps until Christmas...... Days go by……

It seems the older I get, the faster time flies. Time didn’t seem to fly by this fast when I was growing up, time seemed to stand still especially when I looked forward to something. It seems like just yesterday that I was in England for the summer but that was a year ago…. Where did that year go? Where did the last six months go? I have accomplished a lot in the last 6 months, I’ve made over 50 baby blankets, 3 quilts, dozens of scrapbooking layouts, 3 albums, 20 cards, read 3 books. I don’t want the days passing me by without accomplishing at least one productive thing in each day.

"We talk about forever, but we’ve only got today"… so take some time today and do something that makes you smile.

“I'm changing lanes and talking on the phone
Driving way too fast.
And the interstate’s jammed with gunners like me
Afraid of coming in last.
But somewhere in the race we run,
We're coming undone...

And days go by...
I can feel them flying
Like a hand out the window in the wind.
The cars go by...
Yeah it's all we've been given,
So you better start living right now
'Cause days go by...

So take them by the hand,
They're yours and mine.
Take them by the hand,
And live your life.
Take them by the hand,
Don't let them all fly by!

We think about tomorrow then it slips away.
Oh, yes, it does.
We talk about forever but we've only got today”...
Keith Urban

Many days have gone by since I lived in this beautiful old house in
Scotland, but I still hold onto all of the wonderful memories it holds.
