Goodbye September

Leave a comment

Scary how time gets away from you. Not like I didn’t live and appreciate each day of this month though. It was a wonderful month. I learned I was going to be a grandparent which is enough good news to carry me to the end of the year alone easily. But I also had a week of vacation. Felt like I had a good effort at the job and made contributions. And as usual, suffered a number of trials and tribulations at the same time on the job and off.

I survived numerous trips to and from work which is a daily miracle. I have my health, pending some test results but I’m optimistic. And yet the month seems to have flown by. A month is a substantial period of time. And while I’ve posted every day but 2 this month I somehow feel like I should be doing a lot more.

It weighs on my mind about how I use time. What I accomplish. What I do towards leaving this world a better place than I found it. And I’m finding I just have to keep reminding myself of these ideas and goals. It’s so easy to get absorbed in the minor details. I have to keep that big picture and not let the little stuff get to me and waste time.

Random Thoughts of the Day

I punished the body this weekend. And it didn’t break. Its sore but it didn’t break.

I’m reminded of the smile on my mothers face about the coming of the fall season and colors.

Wishing for some normalcy to return. But what is normalcy?
