The moments slip through our fingers like sand.
The days and weeks rush by...
...and like a 'poof in the wind' the years disappear into the distant past.
But the memories...they linger on!
On Friday night we met for dinner with a group of friends that go back a long time!
We were all part of the church youth group way back then...
and likely all at the campfire pictured above 'back in the day'.
We hiked the mountains together...
explored the lakes...
crossed the border to go roller skating...
and drove all the way to Shakey's Pizza in Bellingham.
Now we compared notes on grandchildren...
and our aging parents.
And we remembered the 'good ole days'!
Where did the years go?
On Saturday our niece stopped by for coffee.
It seems not so long ago that she was the wee lass pictured above...
and now she is the mom of teenagers.
We discussed the joys and the challenges of parenting teens.
I think she is doing a fine job of her role.
Again...I was struck by how quickly that role comes and goes.
Time stands still for no one.
Not even Corinne...
who was the winner of my cookbook giveaway last week.
After giving her a week to come forward...
I am moving on to the next number.
And the winner is...#26!
The 26th commenter was Janine VM.
Janine...send me your contact info and I'll make arrangements to get you a cookbook ASAP.
Time...it waits for no one.
Make the most of your day!
