T is for Time

That precious thing we often take for granted
I mean how did it get to be October already?
This month baby girl will turn 6 months old and we will celebrate her 85th birthday with my Mom!
We are so blessed but so often we don't take the time to appreciate all we have.  I am as guilty of this as the next person.  Rushing from one thing to another.
Time to take a moment and reflect on where you are in your life.  Where you want to go and what you want to make sure you don't miss while getting there.  
Time to take care of me and not just everyone around me.  It is something I need to remind myself to do often these days.
Take time to enjoy my home.  The things I love that surround me in my home; books, pottery, photos, memories and my sweet Charlie Kitty.
Time to reflect on life's challenges and also all the rewards.  Time to enjoy the life I'm living.
Time to remember where I've been and 
where I still dream of going!

What a great post Linda! Very thought provoking! I hope you find "time" to do whatever your heart desires this weekend. Hugs, Vicky

Sometimes time flies, other times it seems to stand still. Wishing your mother a happy 85th, that is a milestone that needs to be celebrated!

Great post! You HAVE been taking care of a lot of people lately, and you can't forget yourself. Always remember what they say on the plane. If/ when the oxygen drops, use if for yourself, first. You need it before you can take care of others. We tend to forget that. Our first impulse would be to get that mask and make sure everyone else used it first. Be sure you take care of you!!

Love this post Linda. I am always short on time and have very little for myself. I wish there was just one more hour in the day.

I just want to know how to stop or slow down time, or better yet--turn it back. I would like to be younger with my knowledge attained!

I like to think I use my time carefully, but in truth I let a lot of it slip away. I try to concentrate on making the most of time with my family and friends.

You are so right!!! Time is flying!!! This is my favorite month of the year and wish it would slow down!!!
Happy Birthday to your Momma and your Grandaughter!!

What a coincidence to be reading this post right now. Just a little while ago I was listening to the Rolling Stones song "Time Waits for No One" Thanks for sharing this, Linda. So true!

Sarah said...

Linda, this is a very thoughtful post. Love it! Guess which is my favorite clock? ;-)

EM said...

What a sweet meditation, Linda. Thanks for sharing!

Shelia said...

Hi Linda! I hope your week is going well for you. I've meant to tell you how I like your new little Parisian snap of you.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

At this time of year, I feel pressured by TIME!!! As much as I enjoy fall, it seems like we get cheated by it...such a short time...and then Christmas....ahhh!!!!!

Donna said...

What a great reminder, Linda! It's oh so easy to take time for granted, and want to rush from one thing to another. And then we look back and see all that we've missed from being in such a hurry. Love your Paris photos, btw!

Time goes by so quickly, such a reminder to be still and appreciate all that is around us! Love clocks! Blessings, Cindy xo
