Where Does The Time Go?!

I see that I last wrote a Blog Post on the 21st March, and here we are, almost at the end of goodness, time passes so much more quickly than it used to.  I suppose it must be because everyone seems to lead such busy lives these days.  I’m sure I’m not the only one that would just like to hold back time. So if that Magic Geni with the lamp suddenly appeared in front of me, that would certainly be one of my three wishes. My second wish would be for my mum and dad to return just for a moment in time, so that I could ask them all the questions I never got round to asking when they were still alive - and my third wish?  It would have to be that all my little family would have healthy and contented lives.

I’ve decided to post a few photos of my garden today - all these photos were taken in the last couple of weeks, and you can see that it has suddenly burst into life once again.  Am I the only one to feel really thankful at the start of each new Season?  Thankful that I am still here to see new life appearing everywhere and to take in the beauty of the garden at this time of year.

One thing is for sure - life is very fragile and precious.  You only have to look at the atrocity that occurred in Sri Lanka 🇱🇰 on Easter Sunday.  Easter Sunday of all days.  But then that is why that day was chosen by the terrorists, to cause maximum death and bloodshed with so many people attending  Church Services.  Of course, they also targeted the tourists, which has happened so many times before, elsewhere in the world. Families sitting down for breakfast, and in an instant, half of the family was blown away. These attacks are always indiscriminate- no-one is immune.  I’m thinking here of the Billionaire who lost three of his teenage children.  Wouldn’t he give away every penny, just to be able to hold his children in his arms again?  How do families recover from such terrible losses?  It just doesn’t bear thinking about, does it?

That’s why I always say “I love you” to my children and grandchildren, whenever I see them, or whenever I message them.  You can never say it too often and you can never love them enough.  Never.

I hope you have enjoyed the little snapshot of my garden today, and I’ll be in touch again soon.  Look after yourselves,  wherever you are reading this.

Hi Thisisme. What a beautiful display of your garden! It's almost as if you waved a wand over the garden area, and all of the beautiful shapes and colors begin to appear. I know that it requires some work, and you make it work! It is just amazing!

I am with you on holding back time. Maybe I wouldn't change so many things, and do them differently, I think I would enjoy the greater things that were missed.

Again, I can't figure why there are so many terrorist acts and events. You never know where or when the next one will occur, and why! You are right, they target the places and events where there are certain to be a lot of innocent people. And, I guess they are trying to send some kind of controlling message by killing people who are not even involved in illegal or unlawful acts! These are worrisome times, Thisisme.

I enjoyed your post this morning, and loved seeing Benji lounging amidst the loveliness of your garden. Have a grand week, my friend! ♥

Thank you for your comment, Suzanne. I always appreciate your support of my Blog and the thoughtful comments you leave. Loved your comment about the garden today! These are, indeed, worrying times. I fear for our grandchildren sometimes. I agree with you that I would also enjoy the things that we probably missed. That's the one good thing about reaching our great age - we have more time now to appreciate things, quite often the little things. Because we're older and wiser, I suppose! Look after yourself, my Texan friend ❤️
