How did it get so late so soon?

By Carol Clark

To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under the sun.

                                                                The Bible

 

Why is it that time flies so quickly? When I was young a summer seemed to last forever. Everyday filled with hours of playing - and it seemed like hours! A week was like a month, especially if you were waiting for your birthday. I remember staying at my grandmas for a week while my mom and dad went on vacation without us. Grandma lived right across the street from us so I spent hours staring out her picture window at our lonely home across the street. Even though I loved my grandma, that week was like a year.

Today I almost can't remember summer even happened. It was only just the other day I was transplanting tomato plants and planting summer squash seeds (4 didn't seem like it would be too many).

I am resolving to slow down. Spend some quiet time outside, really see the beauty of the trees changing colors with the season. Go for a walk in the woods, watch the leaves dance and twirl, take photos along the way to preserve this time and enjoy.

Let your mind have time to relax and enjoy the autumn beauty. Before you know it, winter will sneak in and steal the fall away.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How did it get so late so soon?

It's night before it's afternoon.

December is here before its June.

My goodness how the time has flown,

How did it get so late so soon?


Dr. Seuss
