Then comes Ground Hog Day......can you remember how you thought about that furry animal coming out and seeing or not seeing his shadow.......I mean it never occurred to me as a child that it was 6 weeks of winter regardless of shadow or not......in fact I was beginning to think I was slow-witted because one day it just dawned on me about that silly ground hog, lol
I look back on those simple thoughts and remember the innocence of childhood and how the minutes, hours, days and weeks would crawl.......and how somewhere along the line of being an adult my life's gears were switched into fast forward and now on speed dial. I believe it happened some time when my daughters were in college, I don't know, I was so busy then just wanting them to grow up to be responsible adults, and be on their own.........then came the empty nest........I miss the meals around the table, the endless piles of laundry, the places to go and be, the things needing done, the homework, the quarrels and "MOM!", "MOM!", "MOM!" It all happened, but now it seems like a dream........
