Where does time go?

Time seems to slip away faster each day.  I make a concentrated effort to get here at least once a week.  I used to come daily but time gets away on me now and I have a hard time just getting here now and then.  Are things in our lives so important that we can't find time to do the things that give us pleasure and a chance to vent?

The past couple of weeks have been really emotional for me.  I have attended 3 funeral services and have had 9 clients pass on since the beginning of the year.  I keep thinking that as part of my job I have to be able to accept that my clients are now in a better place but it still tugs as my heart each time I get a call to say someone has passed.  The funeral services were for friends and family of friends.  We lost a member of our TOPS chapter to cancer, she was only 65 and the most wonderful person.  I am so blessed to have known her.

My SUV decided to spring a water pump leak so that taxed my finances.  These things are not cheap to repair so after dropping $1500.00 on the repair bill I'm thinking now might be a really good time to trade it off before anything else goes wrong.

It's really busy for me at work right now so was totally exhausted when I got home tonight.  Actually slept for 2.5 hours and I'm ready to head back to bed now. 

Take care my friends and know that even though I am not here all the time you are never far from my thoughts.

For Skippy

1. What is you favorite childhood memory?
My favorite childhood memory is on Sunday's we would get together with family and head out to Jackfish Lake for fishing and swimming.  Two years ago I took all my mom's home movies and had them transposed onto DVD's and the best ones were of family gatherings.

2. What is your dream job?
My dream job is the one that I currently have.  I love being able to help those that have physical and mental challenges by allowing them to remain in their homes rather than being institutionalized.

3. Who is your best friend?
My best friend is the love of my life, the one I am married to.

4. Have you ever been finger printed? Why?
Nope and don't wish to be.

5. Have you ever been at fault in a car accident?
Nope, never been in a car accident.

6. If you could be a citizen of any country other than your own which would you choose?
I'd like to be a citizen of Scotland so that I could live in a castle.

7. If you could have one talent which would earn you money, which would you choose?
I'd love to be able to sing gospel music.  As it is only God appreciates my voice ....hehehe

8. What thing do you find to be highly overrated? Why?
National news coverage of funerals for super stars.  The world is so obsessed with knowing what is happening at these events that it has become way overrated.  I would like to see these people be able to have a peaceful event with family and friends in a private setting rather than having to have it broadcast before nations.

9. Who did you like better growing up - your Mom or your Dad?
Was definitely a Daddy's girl, still am and love every moment of it.

I've never really thought about it.  I would hope at least a half dozen times a day cuz laughter is good for the soul.

Christmas most definitely.  I love the colors and the food but most of all I love it as it celebrates our dear Savior's birth.
