Suddenly we find the children are grown up and ready to graduate – where did the years go? We aren’t twenty-year-olds any more. Somehow we’ve become the “older generation.” And then marriages – and we are grandparents. How did that happen?
The moral of this story is: enjoy the now. It will be gone and buried under so many suceeding nows that, before you know it, you’ll be looking in the mirror and saying, “Who is that I’m looking at? Where did the years go? I’m old!”
When that day comes you’d better have racked up some good memories to look back on – for all those years that flew by. Just stop and pick a few roses, daffodils, pansies or even dandelions occasionally, don’t just smell them. You’ll be glad you did some February night when you hear the wind howling and the snow is swirling outside.
