There are many days that just blend one into another. I don’t like those type of days. You forget it’s Tuesday and before you know it, it’s Saturday. Why do we think that we will keep ourselves organized enough to know what day of the week it is?
Today feels like Saturday and I know it is only Wednesday. Lot’s of memories are flooding my mind with the “big” day coming tomorrow. I wanted to sleep in but, at my age, the bathroom was calling my name and, well, I am in a routine of getting up before six – a.m. that is.
It was raining when I got up and the neighborhood turkeys were at the bird feeder already. No chicks with them so I am assuming they are already empty nesting or they didn’t make it. It must have rained a bit over night as the screened in porch floor was wet.
I enjoy sitting in the peace and quiet that early in the morning. I do, however, check a few things off my phone – mostly nonsense that comes through. The weather 32 years ago was not like this at all. It was a “normal” summer day and no clouds. The hustle and bustle had already started, but I don’t remember much about that day – just the weather.
I have changed and so have the times. I have become more reflective and conscious of what is going on and what is happening. I am just not as vocal as some people are – well, anymore. Ha! You say! Yes, I was one of those talkative type of people and still like to talk, when the time is right. I have learned to listen and be more “in” tune with what you are telling me through your words and body language.
You ever think about that? What does your body say? What do your eyes, brows, and cheeks share?
We are not all poker faced, glazed over, cement statues. You and I give more than we know and you know I know!
As I was reflecting – tomorrow will be our 32nd anniversary and our 34th year together. Wow! No, it hasn’t been all roses and daffodils, but it has been worth the journey together. Without my hubby days wouldn’t be worth waking up to and the journey wouldn’t be as adventurous. I know we all want that in a strong relationship – fun, exciting, loving, spontaneous, laughing kind of relationship.
If I could do just one tiny thing over again…… you will never guess. I would make that day a little less hectic, less over the top (yes, it was), more meaningful, easier on the checkbook, and above all simple!
Take the time today and every day to make it simple.
