Like Sands Through the Hourglass . . .

The hourglass in the photo reminds me of the soap opera, Days of Our Lives. “Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.” 😀 Such a true statement.

My husband and I went to a high school football game tonight, the Homecoming game to be exact. What a great reminder of how old we are. LOL Seriously, where did the time go? I guess since Antoine and I don’t have children, it’s easy for us to forget we are old enough to have them. LOL We are so old that we could have grown children with children.

Although I don’t think we had one, I remember the rotary phone. I was taught how to type on an electric typewriter. I grew up during a time when it was perfectly fine to drink water from the tap and the water hose (best tasting water ever!). There was no internet or cell phone. I remember when candy bars were bigger and only cost a quarter. It was a big deal when the price went up to 35 cents and then 50 cents. Pay phones were used frequently. If you didn’t have a quarter, you called collect but you didn’t let the call go through. LOL You waited to hear your mother’s voice, then yelled, “Ma, come get me” before the operator put the charge through. (Of course that was before Christ. LOL) Those were the days.

Antoine and I enjoyed an evening of laughing about the good old days and realizing how many good old days we have. Yikes! 😀 Time is a precious gift from God. Let’s use it wisely and make the rest of our lives, the best of our lives. (Someone said it, but I can’t remember who. LOL)

Just blogging it out . . . Oh, and Happy Friday Night!!

Continue to pray for our country.
