Day 139 – About Time

This is a watch my grandfather gave to me. It no longer works, but it reminds me of my grandpa. We all think about time; and time seems to change as we age. I remember when I was in junior high, sitting with my friends on our front porch, being bored. It was summer break and the days seemed to last forever, the summer, back then was a very long summer. Now, flash forward many years, very many; it is mid May now but it seems like we celebrated the New Year about a month ago. The summers now seem to be two weeks long and then it’s autumn. Learn to enjoy each day as if it were the last.

Day 77 St Patricks Day in Frankenmuth

 

Wow what a gorgeous St. Patrick’s Day in Frankenmuth! We hit the 80 degree mark today! Although there isn’t much green yet, it was a beautiful walk along the Cass River. This is the view from the dock where the Paddle Wheel boat is parked during the summer months. Looking up the river, you can see the covered bridge and a cloudless blue sky. The only thing missing is the green grass and the leaves on the trees, otherwise this was a perfect summer setting on this late winter day. Happy St. Patty’s day to all! I leave you with this old Irish blessing,

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
