There are, though, days in which the hours seem endless. I remember thinking that each day before Christmas seemed twice as long as any other day of the year!
I also remember “old” people saying that the older you grow, the faster the time seems to go.
We know that’s just not true, but honestly, at my age I’m looking back on 75 years. I have children ranging from 44 to 52! My oldest grandchild is 25, the youngest 13. I was 25 just a few days ago! When did I become an OLD LADY?
You should see all the cartoons of old ladies that are available online. This particular drawing caught my eye:
That blue hair! Do older women still like to put a blue tint in their hair to make it look whiter? Of course, nowadays, young women use every color in the rainbow in their hair. I actually think it’s kind of cool, although I would never do it myself. I’m too lazy to keep it up 🙂 This one is just a tad too extreme, even for me!
Just to show you how I lose track of time: About ten years ago, I purchased a printer to use in my counseling office. It scans, copies, produces awesome colored prints of photos–oh, and it prints nicely, too. The other week, I was looking for ink cartridges for it. The salesperson who helped me told me that they wouldn’t be able to order that size cartridge, because that printer is obsolete. Very few people come looking for that size cartridge.
I was astonished. “But, I just bought that printer. . . . .well. . . . . oy. About ten years ago.” I still think of it as my NEW printer. But the world of electronics is always coming up with new stuff, so that sometimes it seems that the day after you buy it, it’s obsolete!
So, all this rambling has no particular place to go. Just thinking about time, and how dependent we are upon our clocks and schedules. Has to be that way, quite a bit of the time, or nothing would ever get done.
One of the things I look forward to in heaven is that time won’t matter any more.
