New Year's Day 2012! I turned around a few times and here it is the 12th day of 2012!
It was only "yesterday" that I was sitting in the first grade classroom at Emerson School in Lawton, Oklahoma.
Now here I am at age 77 sitting in my upstairs study in Scottsdale, Arizona. I'm sitting in front of a computer---something I had never even heard of or dreamed of back in the first grade.
I was born in the thirties, lived through the forties, fifties, sixties, seventies, eighties, nineties and have raced from 2000 to 2012. I'm tired!
But not exhausted!
I cherish the time I have left.
I adore my wife, my children and my friends. Many of my friends are gone and time is drawing to a close for several more. We all need to appreciate and enjoy our loved ones while we can.
Enjoy your days. They are slipping away--moment by moment.
I expect to shortly hear, "Dinner is ready dear." Charlotte's meatloaf. I love it. I will thoroughly enjoy it!
