A favorite car
1955 Chevy, I borrowed one (it was new) to drive to Sherry's house to ask for the first date..
Now:That old song came to mind, Ain't it Funny How Time Slips Away!
Most of you women (and some husbands) know this feeling except some of us did not know the gender of the coming child.
Quote from SARA:
Sometime this week, I will finally get to meet my baby girl! I am so excited and overwhelmed. This journey has felt like a million years and yet as if it just began.
I cannot wait for the next stage of this journey!
(facebook page of Sara Baker Cannon.)
Our Sara is a doll. An award winning school teacher and now a dedicated wife and a darling niece. She waited, waited and waited until John Cannon, Mr. Right a great guy, came by. They make a beautiful couple and now the baby girl is due next week.
I am seldom on facebook, I go mostly for birthdays. OR if I hear there is a new picture of the family.
So I stumbled across Sara’s statement and right away knew the feeling of TIME. Sara said it seems like a million years. And immediately things started rolling thru my mind.
Remembering how long it took Christmas to get here?
Shucks, I thought I would never reach 16 and my driver’s license.
When Sherry said YES for the first date, it seemed like weeks until I got to enjoy her company.
Yeah and I thought Boot Camp on Parris Island would never end.
Then the enlistment would never end.
When it did I thought I would never find a job!
Many things seem to take forever, BUT once over, the wait wasn’t all that bad. On my first home sale, I though the closing date would never arrive.
Presently I am better at waiting, but still not very good. I have learned to fill the voids with ‘something.’ I try not to waste time.
MA reminded me, Abe Lincoln once said, “Wasted time can never be recovered.” I agree with that, but would also add, “NO TIME can be recovered, not even a second.”
Do you wait well? What do you remember most when waiting was so anxious?
