Thinking of my mother and maternal grandmother today. I can never remember who’s birthday is on the 7th and whose is on the 8th, but they always celebrated the days together. Just my mother, my grandmother and my aunts and uncles — no kids allowed in any of the sister-brother-mom gatherings. So we grew up at a distance from our aunts and uncles and their kids — our cousins. Now, most of the aunts and uncles are gone and the kids are grown, married and have kids that are grown. Only a couple of the cousins maintain any kind of friendship. It’s just the way it is.

So today I’ll continue sewing and trying to get things finished up before it’s time to leave for Arizona. The days fly by so quickly anymore. The older I get, the quicker they pass.

Be safe, be well, and please be happy. And be sure to tell those you love that you love them. One more day before the big “E”, and then perhaps my phone will return to just being my connection to friends and people I want to speak to or hear from. Blessed be…

About tehachap

The easiest way to define myself is as a very happily married woman with two sons and two grandsons. My hobbies include reading, writing, sewing, trains (watching, photographing and running them in G scale), and travel. My husband and I are retired and we spend our winters in Arizona. I used to own a secretarial and desktop publishing business, but closed it when my husband retired in 1999. We have truly enjoyed our retirement years, and have fulfilled one of our primary goals in life and that is to own a home overlooking train tracks so we can watch trains 24/7. We are sincerely blessed in this life.
