And it's Winter before we know it...


You know, time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware of the passing years.

It seems just yesterday that I was young, just married and embarking on my new life with my mate. And yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and I wonder where all the years went. I know that I lived them all...

And I have glimpses of how it was back then and of all my hopes and dreams... But, here it is...the Winter of my life and it catches me by surprise... How did I get here so fast? Where did the years go, and where did my babies go? And where did my youth go?

And so, now I enter into this new season of my life unprepared for all the aches and pains and the loss of strength and ability to go and do things I wish I had done but never did!!

But, at least I know, that though the Winter has come, and I'm not sure how long it will last...this I know, that when it's over...it's over...

Yes, I have regrets. There are things I wish I hadn't done...things I should have done, but indeed, there are many things I'm happy to have done. It's all in a lifetime..........

Ah, yes where did they go?????

I am so mad at myself for not checking you out sooner. Not a very good way putting it was it. What I meant to say I wish I had read some of your work sooner. You are wonderful. I will be reading you from now on. You have a flow that is fantastic. I am sure you have had a very interesting life so far and much more to come. Veta you are beautiful. Sass

You are right. How quickly the seasons pass...

I hope your "winter" is filled with beauty and comfort.
