Day 17 Yesterday…
This is my daughter’s watering pail from when she was a little girl. She is now 16, but I can easily still see her following me around the yard with this pail, helping me to water my flowers. Oh, how I wish I had savored moments more back then. I don’t think we realize how quickly time flies until we are older. We never even notice the last time something happens…. when a fun chore for two becomes a memory. This watering can now sits dusty in my garage waiting for the next little girl to put it to work. Which will most likely be my new granddaughter. Who has fabulous timing, as my nest will soon be empty, but she will be flying in once in a while to brighten my day.
As always time marches on, but I am reminded of another of my favorite quotes.
“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
― Dr. Seuss
